Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0
Build ID: 20150630154324

Steps to reproduce:

Download the latest image of Kano OS.
1. Go to http://www.kano.me/downloads and click on "Download the image directly"
2. Save the file.
(If the link is broken, here's the file I was trying to download: http://downloads.kano.me/public/Kanux-Beta-v2.1.0-release.img.zip)


Actual results:

After 275MB downloaded, the download stopped, saying it failed. But when I click on Restart, it resumed the download, impersonating the Pause feature while downloading.


Expected results:

The download should not have said it failed and should have continuously downloaded the image until it finished.

This also works with other files, too.
This bug ocurred to me on 2 computers.

Works for me.

Does this happen consistently? If you try the STR again, does the download fail again? If yes, can you download the file normally in another browser?
