Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:41.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0
Build ID: 20151001175956

Steps to reproduce:

Session Restore is enabled. (Not sure if this is necessary.).
Downloading a (large) file from Youtube.
Killing the Firefox process.
Open Firefox again.


Actual results:

The download started again from the beginning = the (nearly complete) file was overwritten.


Expected results:

The download should be continued.
(The server understands 206 Partial Content so that is not the problem.)
