Unable to download large files with Mozilla Firefox

  1. Hi all!

    I recently installed firefox on my computer. All works fine except for a
    few little things.

    I tried downloading the Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and Act of War demos
    (approx. 600-700 MB) and both downloads just stopped somewhere near 600 MB.
    Last night I tried downloading the Mandrake Linux 10.1 DVD ISO (approx. 2
    GB) and this download stopped somewhere near 1 GB.

    It seems that large files don't want to be downloaded with firefox.
    Downloading these files with Internet Explorer gave no problem whatsoever.

    Downloading smaller files give no problem at all. I downloaded some
    Neverwinter Nights modules (aprrox. 75-150 MB) and they downloaded

    Has anybody else had this problem and maybe found a solution for it?

    System specs:
    MSI KT6 Delta (K7 mainboard)
    AMD Barton 3200+
    1 GB RAM (@400 MHz)
    2x 80 GB SATA (raid-0) (system c-drive - 81 GB free)
    1x 160 GB ATA133 (storage d-drive with download directory - 110 GB free)
    Windows XP Professional with SP2

    Thanks in advance!
