Size limit on downloads

Hi, I tried recently to download some files that I had stored online on some cloud storage sites. One of them was over 4 GB in size, and the download would not complete. I tried a couple of times on that file, and every time the download failed just before the 4 GB total appeared in the download notice section. I checked online to see if others were having the same problem, and I found a few who were, but there was no solution posted. Is this a specific feature of Firefox, and is there anyway to increase the file size limit in your browser registry?

Hmm there should not be any download size limit as otherwise it would be a common posting about it here.

If your O/S is 32bit that could be why also since that is limited to 4.5gb RAM limit and that could be causing the download issues.

The OP appears to be using 64-bit Windows 10 though.

Yes, it is a 64 bit version of windows I am using. I don't think it matters what cloud storage I have. It offered the download in a zipped file that was more than 4 GB...if it was the companies policy to offer a file of that size as a download, then the download should complete. Why would it fail just before the 4 GB amount was reached...it has to be the browser. I "Googled" that 4 GB download size limit, and I found several postings for it.

A screenshot of the issue and where are you downloading from would be nice. I have never seen a limit on download file size. see screenshot
