A mismatch occurs between Retry button and canResume property


canResume property appears false, even though I can resume the download with the retry button for downloads that currently fail with “NETWORK_FAILED”.

This makes it impossible to resume downloading again through the API.

Is this a bug? Or is canResume currently set to false on purpose?
I want to resume the failed download through API.

The API (in Firefox) doesn’t currently support retrying by resuming, afaik.

Thanks for the answer.
However, I think the ability to resume failed downloads through the API would be useful to Firefox. I hope this discrepancy is resolved.

There are currently no bugs filed asking for it, last I checked (even though it technically is a parity bug, as far as I understand, since chrome supports it). See bugzilla.mozilla.org in the WebExtensions product.
