Unable to cancel downlaod, does not stop even when I close prog and restarts on re-opening FF
A download of Hugin form sourceforge never completesd and is still in the download queue. I cant delete the entry and FF says it is still running everytime I quit. How do I permantly delete this download.
Solution was to disconnect from the internet and restart FF. After which I could delete the downloads that were stuck and not deleteable when online.Read this answer in context 👍 0

hello trbar, this appears to be a reproducible bug in the latest 32 beta 9 version.
a workaround for the moment would be to enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up), right-click somewhere on the page and create a new string setting with the name browser.safebrowsing.appRepURL and value https://sb-ssl.google.com/safebrowsing/clientreport/download?key=%GOOGLE_API_KEY%
for reference see bug #1057764 (please don't post in bug reports, but vote for the bug if you want to see it fixed)
