Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

I have been downloading some cd images with firefox 3 under ubuntu hardy
64 bits. As download take hours, I left the computer alone with firefox
running. After some time I couldn't determine, download stops (I
realized that because network interface ligth does not blink), but
status bar remains showing certain download speed (I guess the speed it
was showing when it has stopped), like frozen. I don't have exact
information, but it think it takes near 2 hours to freeze. If I pause
the download and then resume, it becames receiving data again,  download
speed information starts moving again. I don't know if this behaviour is
due to firefox or another ubuntu program like energy managment, and I
really don't have tools (know how) to determine this. I have changed
screensaver timer but it apears to have nothing to do with screensaver,
bacause frozen becames after screensaver. I don't think it is because a
bios configuration, because with firefox 2  I havn't have this problem
and I have not touched bios.
