Don't know why file downloads quit before they're done
Doesn't matter what distro I use or what desktop environment.
I use Firefox. I currently have 2.0 but earlier versions were the same. When I try to download a file I click on the file. A dialog box comes up asking me where to save the file, (I set it to do that earlier).
After I tell Firefox where to save the file, the file starts to download. It looks like everything is normal, but quite often the downloading stops early. No error message, it just says the download is complete. Even though sometimes much of the file is not downloaded.
And sometimes it works OK. Is there a way to know when it's going to or not going to work? Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong or what I need to do?
