So does Firefox. However, "Live HTTP Headers" shows:

GET /pub/fedora/linux/core/2/i386/iso/FC2-i386-DVD.iso HTTP/1.1

4370640896 is 0x10482B000 and 75673600 is 0x482B000, so this is almost 
certainly a 32-bit integer overflow. Somebody should open an issue on 
the Mozilla bug tracker....

Seems so.
