Sometimes ISPs Or Servers Or Cables or etc Have Problems So That downloads get Interrupted. It would be Very Nice if There Was an "Auto Resume" Function That would Automatically Resume Downloads That Have Not Been Cancelled by User. There Are Some Add-ons but they don't Seem to be Updated and as a result they don't work.

I love the downloading speed of Firefox. But the issue I have with it is not have the ability to resume downloads in case of interruption or network failure. 

I would suggest resume mode should be included so that one can be able to resume download in case of network failure or unexpected disconnection.

Automatic Restart failed downloads.

Hello Firefox team,

Can we please have an automatic restart feature for failed downloads? This would be a great help as currently its needed to keep track of failed downloads and restart them, which wastes time.

Download stops; Fix Firefox to automatically continue downloading instead of manual user monitoring

For example, I am downloading Ubuntu iso file. Couple times downloading just stopped, even Firefox reported downloading speed. Otherwise network worked. Opened download manager and paused, and then resumed downloading. Downloding continued. Could you fix this annoyance, manually needing to monitor download progress, to ensure that download succeeds.
