Steps to reproduce:

I tried to download a big file to a pendrive.

Actual results:

A short time after I chose location of the file, Fx hang for a second or two. Then it started to download the file, like it usually does but with a little twist. Firefox was regularly hanging for a half a second, making surfing on the web uncomfortable. After the download was done, everything went back to normal. Magic.

Expected results:

It should've download the file without any hiccups.
Is it possible that download speed was higher as the write speed of your pendrive ?

My pendrive write speed is about 6 MB/s and download speed is 24 Mbps (about 3 MB/s) so that's not the case.

I should also add that the same thing happens when I download files directly to Nokia 5130 (SD card).
