Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 156507
konqueror won't resume download when you right-click and "save as"
Last modified: 2008-03-20 07:48:12 EDT
Description of problem:
When downloading a file from a webpage in Konqueror, if you have partially
downloaded the file already and do a right-click then "save as", it does not
check for a .part file and give the option to resume. If you just (left) click
on the link then click the "save as" button, you are given the resume option.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. Start konqueror
1. In konqueror, start a file downloading from a webserver, using either (left)
click then "save as" button or right-click then "save as" from the contextual
menu, doesn't matter
2. cancel the download before it completes
3. verify that you have a filename.part file in the directory to which you were
4. go back and start the download again, by right-clicking on the link and
selecting "save as". Don't change the filename (you want to make sure it's the
same as what you started downloading it as)
File will start downloading from the beginning again.
If instead of step 4, you (left) click on the link and then click the "save as"
button when it asks you what to do, it will detect the .part file and give you
the option to resume. This should happen in both cases.
The left-click may not give you the option to save as if you don't have
konqueror configured to always ask; go back and set that if necessary.
Please check against a more recent version of kdebase (from an updated F7 or
F8 installation). Thx
Just tested against an F8 box, and it still exhibits the same (IMO incorrect)
