I have used the Opera browser. It is faster and easier to use (once it is set up correctly) than Firefox or IE. I would suggest to use that. It support stopping, resuming and restarting downloads.
I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Get firefox it has a good integrated download manager. Then if you want to be a download whore you can install the plug in "downTHEMall".
