Steps to reproduce:
1. Load a big (3 MB or more) file.  Loading a video puts it into a cache immediately; downloading a Firefox usually does not for me.
2. Open about:cache and find the entry for the file.

Actual results:
The entry shows a hex dump for all 3 or more MB. Particularly big files cause stability issues.

Expected results:
There is no unexpected huge hex dump.



2008-07-01-04-mozilla-central-firefox-3.1a1pre.en-US.linux-x86_64 seems to have the problem, too, but bug 421828 was about something else.  If I just save the entry, I get a huge .xhtml.part file; that seems to WFM in the latest Nightly.  Maybe this bug I am filing may be considered a duplicate of bug 424307's duplicates bug 424307 and bug 428419.
