Found 1015 results for MURDER HAVOC EXILE NECROPHILIA MAHEM failed download for Firefox. Really???

Posted

Do I really have to use google to narrow a search on Mozilla???

But seriously, is there a way to auto-restart a download when the tubes are being fractious?

Thanks, Doug

Regarding this sentence and the header of your post : I haven't a clue what you're talking about .....

(BTW : Mozilla is the company that makes Firefox)

the tubes are being fractious?

Again : haven't the faintest idea what you mean .....

But regarding auto-restart downloads - would you please take a look at this :

Hi McCoy!

By "narrowing" a "search" for answers, I meant that adding more search terms should RESTRICT the returns to those articles that have ALL the terms; On this site, though, adding terms returns ALL the articles that have ANY of them. (Try it; the subject line is the string returned by the search. Apparently there are 1015 articles with the word necrophilia in them. I thought it was funny. Still makes me giggle :-)

Google allows such "narrowing" in a search (even phrases!) , and can restrict a search to a specific website, e.g. this one. I was dismayed that I might have to resort to such.

Senator Stevens of Alaska famously stated that the internet was a "series of tubes". I thought more people were acquainted with that quote. Sorry. (Fractious ~= persnickety)

The add-ons mentioned in your response have very poor recent reviews. WebExtension incompatibilities?

I was hoping there was a about:config setting or similar?

Doug

Hi Doug,

Maybe you could try to toggle the value of this preference on the "about:config" page and see if that will work for you :

browser.download.resumeOnWakeDelay

The value of this preference, measured in milliseconds, dictates how long the browser should wait after your computer returns from hibernation or sleep mode to attempt to resume any paused downloads.

If you had to change the value, then don't forget to close and restart Firefox.

But I don't think that this is what you are looking for, though. One of the extensions, mentioned on Reddit, might be worth a try (the reviews on the first add-on are indeed not very good).

Hi cor-el!

That is helpful!

But shouldn't '+' be the default?

And, shouldn't 'advanced-search' be visible on a search page? What's the use of there being an 'advanced-search' if no one (except you and I and the other cognoscenti :-) know about it?

Thanks Doug

If you are logged to this website then you have a bar at the top of the page that shows your login name and also includes Contributor tools. Advanced Search should be available as a possible selection.

Thanks again. Found it, "guarded by a leopard" to coin a phrase.

Wasn't logged in (nor had I an account) when I first searched, of course ...

And here I was thinking that your main question was how to
resume downloads, especially as you were "..... hoping there
was a about:config setting or similar".
