Hi All,

   I do not have a modem friendly phone line.  Consequently, my modem 
is continually hanging up in the middle of downloads.

   Problem:  (Windows) Mozilla 1.5 and Firebird 0.7 do not get along 
with a lot of ftp site's "reget" (resume) command and you have to 
re-dial and start over, and re-dial and start over, and re-dial and start 
over, yada, yada, yada.   Very, very frustrating!
   Mozilla's reget seems to work fine with Mozilla.org's web site, but 
very few others. I have been able to access these download perfectly
using (Linux) gFTP's reget (resume) command: sometimes with as many 
as six re-dials and resumes!

   I would like:

1)  fix the problem with reget (resume)

2)  add a pop up to "overwrite" , "resume" or "cancel" when
saving on top of a file fragment from a previous crashed down load

   Here is an ftp site you can practice on:


   You can simulate the problem by unplugging your modem part way
through the download.

   As a gift to those of us not blessed with good phone lines, please 
implement this quickly!

Many thanks,
