It's strange experience with Firefox Quantum for first time. I had started downloading 3.4GB file and after it was about to complete, it got some issue and resume didn't work. I want it to be resumed at any cost. About server : I had downloaded from Google Drive so no doubt about resumable server. (I still have Drive download link as well.)

I respect Firefox team for building such great browser, I just want you guys to look into this matter. It's really important to someone who can't afford "Unlimited Wifi" kindly provide solution to interrupted downloads.

With the hope.

Thanks is advance, awaiting your response.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The usual procedure where you want to resume an interrupted download is as follows:

Make sure to backup the .part file and the final file with size 0 without the .part before starting Firefox. Try these steps to resume an unfinished download when you still have the .part file.

  1. Move the old .part partial download and the final file without the .part that has size 0 to another location.
  2. Start a new download and pause it, don't close Firefox.
  3. Copy the two files (.part and 0 byte final) that you moved above back to the download location to replace the new files that were created.
  4. Resume the download in Firefox.

Hello, Try restarting Firefox Quantum. It does not hit anything with the download, especially if taken from a secure server. Trying to restart the browser when opening the page should be written to restore the page, or something similar. I hope I have helped. Good day.
