username for URL: gpl
password for URL: download

A download from a password-protected FTP-site (login details not saved!) was going on (for example, see URL) while a new browser addon was installed. The browser addon needed a restart of the browser and the restart was done.

After a browser restart the download manager couldn't resume the paused download. There was no question for username and password.

Following this foreknowledge of problem I was opening another tab to load the password-protected FTP-site. As expected it appeared the login dialog and I entered username (gpl) and password (download). After entering my login details I changed to the downloads tab and tried to resume the download manually. It finally worked out.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a password-protected FTP-site
2. Start downloading of a file from this site
3. Restart browser
4. Resume the paused download
Actual Results:  
Error

Expected Results:  
Continue downloading the file
