I'd also like to see the overwrite dialog extended with "Append" button, and aborting the download if the server doesn't support resume. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. download some file 2. make it fail prematurely 3. PROFIT!!! Actual Results: "All downloads were completed successfully." (or something.) Expected Results: "The download 'http://example.com/foobar.baz' stopped prematurely. You can click 'Resume' in the download manager to try to resume downloading." The world would be a happier place :)
Marek, How do you make the download fail prematurely (or are you talking only about 'random' failures)? Clicking cancel responded correctly and offered to resume or remove the download, and did not show me the 'all downloads were completed successfully' box.
Tough job. It may be that it's not a Firebird issue after all. It may be a broken transparent proxy closing a socket prematurely. (Yes, my ISP sucks and won't do anything about it.) Besides, Cancel on a server supporting Content-Range did not give me an option to resume, only to retry. (The server in question is olimp.vlo.ids.gda.pl, try http://olimp.vlo.ids.gda.pl/~endrju/studniowa%2004/zdjecia.zip) In any case, I think the correct solution would be to compare downloaded size and reported size after the socket gets closed and act accordingly if they differ (silently resume or display an error message.) I'm pretty sure that the server reported the size correctly - I've used Flashget after FB didn't download the whole file and it split the download just fine. Flashget-like download manager has been on my Mozilla wishlist since forever :)  http://www.amazesoft.com/
Can you try this again with Firefox 0.8? It no longer says that the download completely successfully if it failed, and pops up an error to this effect and says that the download has failed in the download manager. If the problem is fixed for you in Firefox 0.8 (please do a clean install and use a new profile) then please resolve this bug as invalid. If not, then please comment and let us know how its still broken. Thanks.

The download manager lacks a 'Continue' option - I have to click on a link to get it going (Retry makes Firefox, well, retry.) I'm marking the bug as invalid nevertheless.
