When I download a file in Tor Browser from a server that supports resume transfer, it works fine all three nodes are fast and operational. In a larger file’s case though the download often stall when one node no longer works. Then I don’t want to lose my download progress, but when I click on retry button it’s still Failed- Network error, and I can only restart Tor Browser to rotate circuit in which case I will lose my download progress.
The server I’m downloading from supports resume transfer, tested in my non-Tor browser.
- Operating System you are using: Mac
- Tor Browser version: 12.0.2
- Tor Browser Security Level: Standard
- Step by step of how you got to the issue, so we can reproduce it: 1. Open Tor Browser and connect 2. Navigate to the url of a large file to be downloaded 3. The Tor browser attempts to download the file 4. After ~5 minutes “Failed - Network error” appears 5. Clicking the retry icon will cause it to be at “0KB/s” for a while and then “Failed - Network error” again
