OK, if I "cancel" a download on Chrome, then enter the URL on address
bar, Chrome seems to be able to resume the download with a Range
request.

So my observation is such:

If the 1st response has no ETag, or has no Content-Length,
FireFox/IE/Chrome will not resume the download with a Range request.

If the 1st response is gzip-ed with Content-Length, Chrome will resume
the download with a Range request; Firefox/IE will not.
