Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1.6) Gecko/20091201 Firefox/3.5.6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1.6) Gecko/20091201 Firefox/3.5.6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

When I download a large rar file like >1GB or even 50MB, and choose to save them
over a network shared folder on a different computer (Which I have the full 
privilege to access Read/Write) it downloads successfully but whenever I try to
open the file in WinRar it says it's corrupt and CRC mismatch.

I had to download them to my computer first then move them to the other computer
using cut/paste to make them work :/

Reproducible: Always

I am running 3.6.8.  I am having this problem with .exe and .zip files.  If I download to a mapped drive on my Win7 x64 machine, most of the time the file is corrupt.  If I download the same file to my local drive, it always succeeds.

I also have this problem.  Tried files from 20MB up to 300MB and see the same results.  Running latest version of firefox on windows 7.
