- Download a file
- Pause the download
- Resume it
- startTime gets reset

Chrome doesn't reset the startTime.

Firefox doesn't actually pause downloads, when pause() is called it cancels the download and then when reusme() is called it issues a new request with a Range header (or the equivalent for ftp etc).  The UI shows the time the most recent request was started so we have to choose between being inconsistent with Chrome and being inconsistent with other parts of Firefox here...
