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.

No problems with my anti-virus/firewall product. I think the download file is corrupted. mozilla actually sent me an error message saying so when it tried to perform the upgrade.
