My guess is you have the data logger open in one of your Firefox tabs. 
Weatherlink-IP data logger in not your typical IP interface; it is a 
singleton and cannot handle multiple simultaneous IP connections. It's 
priorities are such that it favors new connections over existing 
connections. So, if you are in the middle of a download and something 
else tries to initiate an IP conversation, it will drop the download and 
answer the new connection. You'll also have a problem if you have it set 
up to send data to weatherlink.com and then try to use weatherlink 
software with it at the same time.

The reason is that it's not a real IP interface, it's RS-232 exposed as 
a pseudo-IP interface, and RS-232 can only handle one connection at 
time. This was the man reason I returned mine within a week, many, many 
years ago.
