Build ID: 20150807085045

Steps to reproduce:

I am downloading software files in zip or exe, or any other types of files, small or large.

Actual results:

Frequently, yes, very often, using the Download Manager, my download ended up with "Failed", and then I have to keep re-start again and again, and sometimes, re-starting a few times works download complete, and sometimes, cannot at all.

Frustrating, FF guys, I love using FF, so pls take a look.

Chinese user from China, of course :)

Expected results:

Download should be stable and work well because I am downloading same files by using Chrome, that speed is high and download successfully at one time.

So why I use FF and then have to switch to Chrome for download separately, no way man.

Any issue with firewall or poor connection?
