Did you check for issued caused by security (anti-virus) software?

Try to rename (or delete) the mimeTypes.rdf file in the Firefox profile folder to reset all file actions.

What rar file are you trying to download? Can you give me a link to it?

Any other suggestions?

No idea what was causing the problem. But I apparently solved it.

Additionally: Firefox won't download previously failed .RAR files unless you delete the .part files in your Downloads folder and the instances of the files in your "Recent Files" folder.

Ok apparently I didn't solve it.

Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.

Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.
