My question is: Why does the download keep going?

Then when complete is totally not complete?

Is there any way to keep the downloads [b]going/b even when the window is closed.

Because it goes on anyway.. sort of.

My "browser.download.manager.quitBehavior" value is 0 but it doesn't pause download and resume later.

Man, this is annoying.

You can set the browser.download.manager.quitBehavior pref to 2 on the about:config page.

That will make Firefox ask for confirmation if you want to cancel the download when you close Firefox.

Blargh, but I want it to continue even if the window closes.

Why does it have to stop.

Alright thanks. If this works then it's good.
