    OK, now that that is out of the way here is my issue:

    When I am trying to download files from certain websites, including my school's website, the files attempt to download and complete almost instantly, usually with varying bytes or KB of data downloaded, not the full file. On my school's site I try to download a variety of file types including .pdf .doc .ppt and some .zip and it's the same thing with all of them, this has happened on several other sites as well, but usually I can download these file types without a problem. I am just wondering what could be causing this problem and if it is fixable.

    Thank you in advance for any help.


  2. try the same thing with dolphin or steel browser ,both are free and never faced this problem with them.

    Partial downloads with mobile browsers is quite an issue.
    Servers dont treat them well.
