Hi there,

When Download items, ex: picture, mp3, movies, any files (doesn’t matter the file size) when it reaches 100% complete downloads it will disappear automatically in the download list and on the actual file location, I’ve try to copy and paste when the file reach 98%99% and I'll quickly copy the file, but the original 100% file will just disappear, it just happened 2days ago, was fine before.

Also I have been trying to relocate the download file and location, but it still happened, disappearing, so could not download anything at the moment, even for a small little picture.


Please assist in the matter, will be much appreciate, thank you very much! 

Regards,

Firefox support user

It is possible that your anti-virus software is corrupting the downloaded files or otherwise interfering with downloading files by Firefox. You can try to disable the real-time (live) scanning of files in your anti-virus software temporarily to see if that makes downloading work. Do not forget to re-enable the scanning in your anti-virus software after you are finished with downloading and installing. ..........
