Project Description

I have a live CE 1.4.0.1 Magento store. It sells only downloadable items.

Problem:

- customer cannot download two products at the same time.

The issue is this:

- after purchase, a customer is presented download links in their Account area

- when a customer clicks a link to download a file, it locks the browser. Nothing can be clicked on the website

- when the download completes, the problem disappears. Normal clicking is then possible to download more files

This is a problem because:

- customers want to click many download links at the same time, and download many large sounds simultaneously

- when the browser locks, customers think the browser has crashed

This is a more common issue when the downloadable files are large. Short ones download quickly, so customers don't notice the bug.

For reference, here is a forum post about it:

We tried modifying:

/app/code/core/Mage/Downloadable/controllers/[url removed, login to view]

By Adding:

session_write_close();

But that didn't work.

At the end of the job, before payment, I will need a list and path of files modified.
