is it possible to continue download in mozilla

I have tried to download SUSE 3 times and it keeps stuffing up.

Is it possible to continue a "cancelled" download in the mozilla download manager.

Where does mozilla store the partially downloaded file (at the moment it is about 600 meg).

If this is not possible can anyone suggest a good download manager that supports continuing a file download after the computer has been turned off.

- thanks

if you are using KDE you may want to give a try to KGet.
cool download manager
just paste the link for the file you want to download in it (Ctrl+V), and choose the location you want to save the file. That's it.
Now, you may stop, restore, schedule e.t.c. the downloading of the file.

i hope i was of some help

I like the command line myself so wget is really nice to use. Just dont forget the -c option which stands for continue.

wget -c http://to_my_link
