I have quite frequently have downloads stop prematurely in Firefox and Firefox calls it done, if it is an mp3 the whole song isn't there, if it is something like a zipped archive, it says it's corrupt!!! for example a download will stop at 57% and scan for viruses like it was completed but it wasn't!!! I have used Firefox since version 4.0 and this issue still haunts me today (15.0.1)!!!

In the address bar type about:config

Click through the overly cute warning if it appears

Filter for browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone

Change this to False.

In most cases your AV will still scan the file but will be polite enough to wait until the download is done rather the getting a head of the game.

"for example a download will stop at 57% and scan for viruses"

Yes I did. Either settle down or you will get a vacation once I get back from work.
