Hi,

Since few last version of Firefox, the files downloads fail randomly, no matter the file size, the issue happen with smalls files and very larges files. I use Firefox on Linux, OS X and Windows and the issues happen on each platform. And also, the issue happen with different ISP I have and with any web sites who provide files to download.

Thanks for your help!

On Linux there is likely no security software installed that can cause problems like can happen on other platforms.

Did you check your internet connection (network card, router, cables) is case something is wrong there?

Hi cor-el!

All my computers are on wired LAN, and the issue happen on other ISP also. With other browser I can't reproduce this issue. Its only with Firefox the downloads fails.

Hello,

Any idea? Please help me with this.

If files fail to download then this is a problem with the connection settings and you would have to check these in the operating system. It could be the size of the packets, so you could check the router settings.

Hi cor-el,

I don't have this issue with Chrome, its only happening with Firefox, for my ISP router, I didn't change things in it, as it happen only with Firefox, its seem to be a bug with Firefox. The issue happen on Mac and Linux machines and on different ISP also. I didn't use Windows anymore so I don't know if the issue still happening on Windows.

I do a search on Google and others seem have this issue also. It suggest also to check NIC, routers and to reset Firefox, I do all of that and I still got the "Failed" when I try to download files.
