   While downloading the above tar.gz. Pause the download using the download
manager and resume the download say after 10 minutes. On completion of the
download the tar.gz file is corrupted.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to
http://www.mirrors.wiretapped.net/security/network-security/gnutls/gnutls-1.0.13.tar.gz
2.Download that.
3.When donwload manager comes up bring up the properties and pause the download
say after 20% completion.
4. Then resume the download after 10 minutes.
Actual Results:  
The downloaded file is corrupted on completion.

Expected Results:  
The file shouldn't be corrupted.

I tried increasing the timeout preferences (both keep-alive and ftp) it doesn't
help.This happens on any large download. I see this problem on Windows aswell.

does the window immediately close when you do this?
do you get a message in the javascript console (tools|web development|javascript
console)?

note to self:
10 Content-Type: application/x-tar
11 Content-Encoding: x-gzip
(streamconverter problem?)
Yeah the window closses soon after I resume..I don't see any error in the
Javascrip console. I have seen some bugs have been reported similar to this on a
dialup connection. But I am not using dialup here. Also, I have see this problem
while downloading a PDF also.
well basically, I see two possibilities here... either the server decided the
TCP connection has a timeout and closes the connection, so mozilla gets an error
trying to resume; or there's a bug in mozilla's gzip streamconverter...
A packet sniffer log would let us eliminate (or confirm) the first possibility....
I am confirming this bug as I can also reproduce it on Windows XP SP2, Firefox 1.0 .
