    When I download files from websites in safari they often stop mid download and if I start another download of the same link it will often finish before the previous one or stop again at some other point in the download different from the first download.. I keep downloading in this way until one of the downloads finally finishes while the others have all stopped mid download.. its very annoying any ideas?

    Is this stuff you're trying to download all from the same site, or are they from different sites?

    What kind of internet connection do you have? Do you have the same problem in other browsers (Firefox, Opera, etc)? It sounds to me like a connection issue. But did you know Safari can resume downloads (IF the download server supports it, most do)? You can stop and then start the download and it should resume... does that work in your case, instead of starting a whole new download?
