User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:25.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/25.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20131112160018

Steps to reproduce:

I was downloading a large file.

When 99% of the file was already downloaded, Firefox crushed (reason not important).




Actual results:

The download stopped, and I have to start all over again.


Expected results:

The download manager should continue to work even if Firefox crushes (independent tool, or some other method).

WFM with this download: http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/technology/epp/downloads/release/luna/SR1/eclipse-java-luna-SR1-macosx-cocoa-x86_64.tar.gz&mirror_id=1029

If the server doesn't support resuming, there's not much we can do...
