Since this bugzilla report was filed, we have seriously upgraded Gecko-related
packages, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this
problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their
distribution available.

Please, confirm to us that this bug is reproducible on the latest upgrade of the
supported distribution (that's RHEL, or Fedora 7, 8, and Rawhide).

Setting the bug to NEEDINFO. If I won't get confirmation of reproducability in
30 days, the bug will be closed as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.

[This is mass-changing of bugs which seem to be too old and irrelevant anymore;
we are sorry, if this bug should not be incldued.]

Yes it is still a problem -

but this problem maybe also apache related. 
I do not know if there is a way to find out the real filesize and then
decide based on the environment if the download will be successful.

Please check also other tools ( wget, curl, ... ) which are used for http-

Taking the bug...
Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2008-05-20 11:49:05 EDT
Seems to be fixed in the upcoming firefox 3 package. It's going to be released
in RHEL-4.7. Closing as NEXTRELEASE.
Comment 5 Winfrid Tschiedel 2008-05-21 02:38:38 EDT
Just for your information :
firefox 2.0 fixes the problem -
but not in any case firefox caused the problem,
it might be also apache or
if you are behind a proxy your proxyserver might be the problem.
Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2008-05-21 02:44:52 EDT
Aha, thanks for the info, I didn't investigate it so much. If you still have the
problem after rhel-4.7 release just open the bug-report...
