User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040128 Firebird/0.8.0+ When I choose "Save link to disk" from pop-up menu Firebird starts downloading the file in the background immidiately even before I choose a place where to save it. There has to be an option to disable such a behaviour because when you have a broadband connection you are risking to download much of the file which you don't want to have at all. (Imagine you'd like to save a small part of musical file and then while you're browsing for the best place for it Firebird already downloads half of it via your 10Mbit Internet connection). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Also that would be nice to have an option to set a firebird maximum connection speed (like --limit-rate for GNU/wget program) for file downloads. Another idea is to fetch file headers from the server and then present them to the user like "You are trying to download file "http://host/dir/file" which has 10Mb size. Continue?Yes:No"
Check Tools... Options... Downloads. Is "Save all files to this folder" selected?
