Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6

this is meant to be a firefox version of bug 183291.

i've seen truncated downloads (especially of mozilla.org installers) that are
reported as successful for many versions of firefox under both windows XP and OSX.

the most recent one i saw was when trying to download the FF 1.0.5 installer
using FF 1.0.4 under OSX.  the symptoms were that the correct size was
originally shown, but the download was marked as successful and complete after
only ~700K.

Reproducible: Sometimes

not sure how to get any traction on this.  this just happened again for me with
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b5) Gecko/20050922
Firefox/1.4 trying to download
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla1.8/firefox-1.4.1.en-US.win32.installer.exe

Don't you have any proxy/cache server, or any router in your network?

well there are definitely routers between me and ftp.mozilla.org :P

i know of now proxies or caches in between us, though.  the same downloads always work fine in IE :(
Does this still happen in a recent build?
