    perhaps a step back is in order.

    In the old days of computers, we had tools such as FTP protocols that allowed for the File Transfer of any sized item.

    Many times using a browser, be it Firefox, Explorer, Safari or Netscape ( or Lynx! ) simply is the wrong tool. Think using a swiss army knife ( one tool to do many things ) to perform surgery ( where a scalpel is the tool of choice) .

    Email applications are even worse in that the many applications were never written to move large files.

    Look into an FTP client for your platform and ask FER to give you an location of a hard drive to move it to.
    A username and a password will be needed.

    A 5Meg file is trivial in size - I pretty routinely move multi gigabyte files with an FTP client.

    yours in service.
