I've got a weird problem with my Opera 8.01, build 7642.
When I'm downloading a file from a regular link the download stops as
soon as I close the tab from which the file was linked.
For example: I go to
click on "Intel x86 install CD".
It starts downloading, but as soon as I close the tab the download
stops and I've got to hit "resume".
It looks like the .iso content is being delivered as MIME type
from the server. As such, the download wants to replace the current page
(at least here when I click the links), since I have text/plain to "Open
with Opera". If/when the page closes, the download terminates.
As a work-around, right-click on the links, select "Save target as..." to
download/save the file locally.
Actually, halting when closing the tab is a known bug in 8.0 and 8.01, it
is fixed in the current beta version. In other words, 8.02 should fix this
and be available shortly.
