You cannot resume after a broken session at the moment.

I removed your e-mail address because we do not give email support. To do so would deprive other users of the information offered in a response to your topic. More importantly, spammers harvest email addresses from public forums like this.

You need an external D/L'er.
Try FreeDownloadManager.
May also use the 'Flashgot extension.L.

The Firefox extension DownThemAll! will work for you.

Install from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/201

Most external downloaders support resuming if the server supports it too.
E.g. FlashGet, wget, filezilla (ftp) ...

If you still have the .part file then rename that to the final file name.
Then an external download manager that supports resume should be able to resume that download.

... if you didn't add commands to the program (i.e., the "pause" and "resume" commands in the download manager) until they actually -worked-. I just lost 42% of a 700 meg download because -- silly me -- I though the resume command might actually -work-. Thanks, guys.

Sorry for that but we are not responsible for it.
