Corrupted File Downloads Through Firefox Browser Often Occurs

Hi. I've noticed that files downloaded through the Firefox browser very often come out corrupted. Just to keep in mind, I'm always on the latest version.

Nowadays, I download the same file multiple times and compare their checksums to see if any two or three are identical matches to be more certain that it turned out as it should. This is an extremely tedious and troublesome task and a waste of bandwidth and time, especially when some files like video footage shot from a high-end camera for film production can be extremely large (25-100 GB per file) and it needs to be shared and downloaded multiple times by a number of group members that are working on the film project to compare checksums to see if they match. In our case, we provide the checksums for the files before uploading to the cloud, so our members can check against it after they've downloaded the file to ensure none of frames in the footage are corrupted.

However, in most cases, the problem arises when Firefox users download something online that often doesn't have checksum they can check against. Even if they downloaded the same file two times with their checksums matching, it doesn't 100% guarantee that they aren't corrupted, since the same piece in each of the two files could be corrupted at the same spot, although very unlikely but still a possibility. Everyone in our group has very stable internet connections via ethernet cable, and not WiFi.

Could this issue be looked into to figure out what the problem is?

If you want the issue "looked into", you could file a bug report. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/

I suggest using software specifically designed for downloading, especially for large files.

Thanks, I'll look into filing a bug report.

I'll also keep your other suggestion in mind.
