Just tried it, no issue. 29.7 kb and downloaded fine and looks fine.
Could it be something with the way its passing this information on your system? Some configuration data might help.

Maybe its the parameters used for cURL and wget?

Do they work with the same URL from the terminal?
My doubt is that the server blocks cURL's User Agent string...

OK, I was right. They check the User-Agent header to prevent leeching from bots and other automated downloaders.
Just enter the following command line in a terminal (logged as the same user as the one you launch Firefox as), it should do the trick once for ever (for cURL):

Code: Select all

touch $HOME/.curlrc && echo >>$HOME/.curlrc 'user-agent = "Mozilla/5.0"'

Next FlashGot build will fake the user agent by default both for wget and cURL.
