Firefox downloads keep failing

Posted

Hi,

Recently large file (90+megs) downloads keep failing . The download started normally, downloads for a little, then idles out and fails with no error messages. I'm currently on Windows operating system and i even tried disabling all add-ons and scan functionality in my browser and it's not my IPS giving me grief either. I've also tried with other browsers such as Explorer and chrome and have no problems with them with the same file and location.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, this is getting really aggravating...

Thanks, - Ult
