When I tried to download the OpenSuSE ISO image (which weighs 4,3GB), SeaMonkey under Windows downloaded only 251MB. Note: this happened also with IE7 under Windows.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open
2. Select DVD, http or ftp download
3. Click "Installation DVD"
Actual Results:  
Truncated download (size is consistent)

Expected Results:  
I would expect the full 4.3GB image

wget under FreeBSD solved the issue... I think MinGW's wget should work too (have not tried it on this particular file)

Do you use ntfs or fat32 as filesystem ?
I had no problems with the file but aborted manually at 2.2GB with SM trunk.

The filesystem is NTFS.
Do you use a proxy or something that installs a transparent proxy like a Antivirus product ?

IE7,SM2 and FF3.5 are able to handle files over 4GB except if you use fat32 but that is a filesystem limitation (maximum filesize is 4gb-1 byte).

Marking works for me then.
