    I was downloading something half way (600mb of it) and then internet connection got cut off. I really don't want to start all over again. The part file from firefox downloader is still there. Is there any way to resume it?

    looks like you're gonna have to try again if you removed it from the download box

    Although this has nothing to do with recovering your file, you may want to check out the Download Statusbar Add-on for Firefox. It'll get rid of that pesky window and allows for a ton of ways to customize your download process. Is suggest you look into it for future downloads:

    Thanks anyway, but I started all over again. Looks like you can't download por...I mean educational material without being cut off half way. :'(

    Kinda...

    Type in CTRL+# where # is the tab number (so 1 for the first tab, 2 for the second, and so on). This only works up with up to nine tabs, though.

    You could also use CTRL+Page up or Page down.

    Yes, CTRL+TAB.

    I think the default action is just to cycle through the tabs, but you can set it to be like windows (pressing ctrl tab and holding the ctrl button will bring up a box that you can cycle through).
