Mainly that firefox (at least as you have it setup) is evil and opens up too many idle connections to the server.

Looks like firefox will even preemptively create connections before it even has something to request of the server "just in case" you click on something.  That makes the vgchartz server defensive...

That leaves me two questions.

1) Is there any way to fix that.

2) Can I close VGchartz in firefox (but leave firefox open) and just open vgchartz in chrome to fix this?

It should be fixed now, at least for anyone who logs in.

Firefox is being impolite, but not causing real problems as it's mainly wasting idle connections.  The caps were put in place because of some bots and other things doing denial of service attacks or speed crawling the site and other bad behavior.  That type of bad behavior tend to never login....

Yes, if you close VGchartz in firefox (but leave firefox open) it probably wouldn't trigger.  You might have to wait for firefox to release it's connections which can take awhile after closing a tab.  (You can check with netstat).  I probably place a higher limit for authenticated connections later.
