My downloads fail instantly; creating a 0KB file and a PART file of varying size. I tried safe mode and I tried the solutions from this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files I've tried downloading a new version of flash player as suggested in a different thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1220037 But it still doesn't work. I removed myself from the family, and even restarted my pc but the downloads still fail. So I doubt it was parental controls, also I started having the problem recently, I've used firefox since about November last year and it worked without an issue, I haven't done anything to firefox since then.

Saving pictures still works though, I saved this picture I took with gyazo from firefox and it saved the picture without a problem. I've attached a picture to show what it looks like. The flashplayer was downloaded with chrome.

Every time I go to download anything in Firefox, it always fails to download and every time I try to restart the download, it fails instantly. This suddenly started happening a few days ago and I'm not sure what could have possibly caused it. I looked to some forums and possible solutions, here's what I tried:

-Refreshed Firefox -Started Firefox in safe mode w/o addons -Uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled -Made a new profile to see if my current one was bad -Checked about:config for download settings, all reset

I have looked around at a bunch of other entries on the forum and from various websites, and it seems like everyone is having trouble with downloading when they have a bunch of strange add-ons and such, but this morning I all of a sudden have had all of my download attempts on the browser return "failed" when I click on the downloads arrow. It doesn't matter if I chose open or save file, it will always fail. I have tried going to about:config from the address bar and resetting all of the download preferences to default, and have tried to clear the download history. I also tried resetting firefox, all to no avail. Please help me solve this problem. I am running UBlock Origin and Adobe add-ons only.
