Since the last firefox update I have noticed that while downloading from sites like Rapidshare, DivX Stage 6 etc the download gets broken if i do something bandwidth intensive (like watching a video at YouTube).It just like freezes at the % and doesnot proceed further. I checked with other browsers and download managers. It was not the problem of connection or the site. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download a 700 MB file from Stage 6 or such sites
2. While in progress watch a few videos from YouTube or other video services
3. The progress of the download should freeze now.
Actual Results:  
The downloading frezzes

Expected Results:  
The download should continue!
