Suddenly I can't download anything with Firefox.

Posted

Using v. 60.1 64-bit. All attempts to download are borked. No error message, but checking Downloads shos that they all fail (wihout explanation, of course). I have tried EVERY so-called solution for this I've seen on the 'net, and none of them worked.

Help, please.

Hi, welcome and that is correct. Though it will be one of these : Avast Online Security & Avast SafePrice As well as DownloadStudio & Turbo Download Manager

And we have seen that Avast especially after new releases and updates can cause issues as There is security software like Avast / AVG, Kaspersky, BitDefender and ESET that intercept secure connections and send their own certificate. This creates connection problems which is possibly what you had.

You can try the Avast Community Support Forum for info and to see if other users are having issues as well as work arounds.

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance

Hi, Separate security issue, please update your Flash 27.0 r0 Flash Player Version: 29.0.0.171 Current Version https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/ Step 1: Select Operating System Step 2: Select A Version (Firefox, . . . .) Note: Other software is offered in the download. <Windows Only>

Wish you had shared what you had tried so not repeating what you have done or tried. So if ask you to do something you have tried that will be the reason.

I notice your running Avast Online Security & Avast SafePrice As well as DownloadStudio & Turbo Download Manager

Please try : SAFE MODE

In Firefox Safe mode these changes are effective:

  • all extensions are disabled (about:addons)
  • default theme is used (no persona)
  • userChrome.css and userContent.css are ignored (chrome folder)
  • default toolbar layout is used (file: localstore-safe.rdf)
  • Javascript JIT compilers are disabled (prefs: javascript.options.*jit)
  • hardware acceleration is disabled (Options > Advanced > General)
  • plugins are not affected
  • preferences are not affected

Okay, so I am able to download in safe mode. Does that mean I have to go through my add-ons one by one and find out which one is the culprit?

And thank you for the help.

Similar problem here with 62.0.3

Here is an example http://www.gobiernodecanarias.org/cultura/oficinadeapoyo/descargas/logo_gobcan.ps

I click on this link at the webpage http://www.gobiernodecanarias.org/cultura/bancodelogotipos/ and a new tab open briefly for a milisecond and then disappears.

It also happens with other sites like Wetranfer. I click the download link, a tab opens briefly and nothing happens.

I have tried disabling all Add-ons. My antivirus is Avira.

Also, when I click the link, Focus goes away from Firefox apparently to nowhere.

Or not exactly. Firefox remains highlighted in the taskbar but the Minimize/restore/close icons are greyed out and backspace or any other keystroke doesn't affect Firefox, so It is not in focus despite the task in the taskbar remains highlighted.

Ok, I tried Safe Mode and the problem disappeared. Then I restarted, disabled all add-ons and restarted again with all add-ons disabled... and the problem is still there!

So it seems the cause is not an add-on but some other thing. But what can it be?

Make sure you are not blocking content.

One issue that seems more common lately is Firefox's Tracking Protection feature. When it is blocking content in a page, a shield icon will appear at the left end of the address bar next to the padlock icon. This article has more info on managing this feature: Tracking Protection {web link}

I'm pretty sure it wasn't this problem because I would have noticed the icon. The thing is, today it is working normally again! Yesterday it wasn't working and today it is working and I didn't do anything! Pretty weird...

I hate when things get solved by themselves because if they fail again, I don't know what fixed it the first time.
