Devices: - Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (Android 5.0.1); - Xiaomi MiPad 2 (Android 5.1); Build: Nightly 54.0a1 (2017-02-10); Steps to reproduce: 1. Download a large audio/video/image file. 2. Go to about:downloads and long tap the download in progress. 3. Verify that the options: Pause and Resume are displayed and working. 4. Verify that Pause & Resume buttons are displayed in the android notification bar while the file is downloading/paused. Expected result: The pause/resume options should be available for all files. Actual result: Some files, as audio, video or image (jpg) types don't have the pause/resume actions. Notes: These are just a few of the file types I've tested, probably there are others. On the other hand, zip files do have the option to pause/resume downloads.
This behavior depends on the server pausing & resuming a download requires the server to accept the range parameter. https://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html Were all the test files served from the same subdomain/domain?
@Kevin, Initially I've downloaded files from the test page: https://people-mozilla.org/~atrain/mobile/tests/media.html It also happens on: www.html5videoplayer.net/videos/toystory.mp4 Doesn't reproduce on this pages: http://www.divx.com/en/devices/profiles/video http://www.audiocheck.net/testtones_highdefinitionaudio.php
Mass wontfix for bugs affecting firefox 52.
Is this a regression or new bug?
Can't run mozregression to determine this, it seems to not be working for a while now for me & others. For additional info to Kevin's comment, these files downloads can be paused on Chrome, but not on Nightly: www.html5videoplayer.net/videos/toystory.mp4 http://video.webmfiles.org/elephants-dream.webm https://edmullen.net/test/imagefiletest.php
Installed a build as far as 2014-01-31 and the issue was still reproducible.
