Details

We need to wrap this wget with a retry loop.

Example session:

bash -c 'wget http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-release/raw-file/FIREFOX_14_0_1_RELEASE/build/package/mac_osx/pkg-dmg'

Not a priority to fix because it's rare that we hit it, and easy to recover from.
Priority: -- → P3
hit on ff23.0 build2
One thing to watch for: wget will not overwrite an existing file without -O <filename> so you could end up with pkg-dmg.1, pkg-dmg.2, etc.. as it retries and be left with a partial pkg-dmg file when the wget finally succeeds.
