No, it's not WONTFIX bug but I don't see much activity on it anyway.
This is it: "Cross Session resumable downloads"

Also look into some related bugs in mozilla code:

1. "general issues w/ resumable downloads (ftp+http) - ability to
manually/automatically restart/resume cancelled/failed/disconnected downloads"

2. "Implement a way to prevent the loss of downloads when mozilla crashes"

It seems this is a little off-topic here...
