Large uploads currently fail if you navigate away from the Metro browser. Leverage either the background tasks API or the PowerCreateRequest, PowerSetRequest, and PowerClearRequest functions (as documented in the Power Availability Requests whitepaper) in order to allow downloads.
Talked to the netwerk guys and they suggested to do this in the nsHttpTransaction constructor/destructor by firing observer events. They mentioned this is in the socket thread though so there may be some complications there.
