When downloading a file > 2GB, firefox didn't finish downloading the file, and the UI got kind of messy. The file in question is 3475738628 bytes. I'm not setting the Content-Length header since WebSphere chokes on it. The download manager window was redrawing the file size very quickly for the first few seconds, and then stopped updating as FireFox took up 100% cpu time. The download stopped at 3194220544 bytes in the .part file, and the socket was reset (as per the error on the server). Firefox's download window doesn't indicate that the transfer was completed and is stuck at "-1074956 KB at -1990.-9 KB/sec; unknown file size"
Never mind about the transfer not completing; I ran out of disk space (but no error occurred). The GUI is still messed up, however. If you watch, you can see it flip to negative after 2GB. A clarification on the redraw issue- it looks as if firefox is trying to redraw the window too quickly. It redraws about 10 times in one second then pauses for about 10 seconds. Does it need some sort of throttle to limit the # of redraws/second? The transfer is over 100Mbit, so it's going about 5000-10000KB/s.
