Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 If I download a file and, midway, quickly pause and resume, it carries on.
If I disconnect the LAN and plug it back in quickly, nothing goes wrong (I have a feeling that TCP/IP would fix this bit and interpret the break as lost packets which need to be resent).
They will remain like this until I start the downloads over and rather than resume from where they were they start over. Either have the capabilty to resume partial/failed downloads like internet explorer does (by not writing the file name until it is completely downloaded), or force it to automatically check for internet connection and resume after say 1 minute or 5 minutes.
I have the same (or very similar) problem with 1.2.1: Please, I'm a new bugzilla.user, so forgive me if I don't even attempt to change any of these options I see above.
When Download Manager is opened again, all files are said to be completed and show this in window.If I try to just disconnect the network in order to see if it does the same thing the file just considers itself finished.Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1will need to go to one of the downloading pages such as : Once there right click on a file and click "Save Link Target As" 3.This somehow tricked Mozilla to resume the download as nothing had happened.I do not remember the exact procedure for this trick.
(New versions of some packages and really old versions of others have not necessarily been tested together, after all.) If you're accustomed to using the Software Updater (Update Manager in older Ubuntu releases), go ahead and do that.
