    You probably had the window open asking you where to save it. Firefox will continue downloading before you pick a save location. It does that for some reason so no, it's not possible to download at 37MB/s.

    It all depends, he could be downloading from his own network.
    Of course, that's not the case here.

    yea if you have "save to" window open it will download it

    also uncompressed videos download faster, same with uncompressed images, i remember back in the old days downloading bmp files over 56k going well over 5.6kbs to about 8-12kbs thinking "i'm breakin the law!"

    This happened to me one time. I was downloading a vid at 15000kbps.....I was like WTF. It dropped back down to the usual 800kbps at around 80% done. But at the end, the video file was complete and played fine.

    The joys of caching - too bad if you end up canceling it (bye bye bandwidth).
