I have never been able to hit pause and then resume on a download and it work. Like even if I do not disconnect the internet and just hit pause and then resume it hangs and will not resume.

I would like to be able to hit pause get offline to make a phone call and then resume my download when I re-connect. Anyone else have this problem or can tell me how to fix it?
Thanks :thumbsup:

I have seen and troubleshot this by using another download manager like,.... download manager, and seeing if the server I was connecting to was able to resume at all. 2 out of 3 resumable servers have been able to resume in firefox and one didn't want to regardless. No non-resumable servers can un-pause

This is the only way I could suggest seeing if it is a Firefox issue, or something far more sinister, like your telephone company trying to squeeze more out of you :flowers:
