Hi Mozilla Community,

Currently on version 97.0.1 of Mozilla and have not been able to download any files from Google Drive.

When I click on a files to download it just keeps loading scripts at the bottom like - docs.0k.cc.googledocs.... and nothing happens.

I have read countless of links to solve the issue and still it won't download any files - only uploads is fine.

So I have: - clear cache/cookies - disable addons like Adblock etc - privacy & security set on Standard in settings - added cookies exceptions- googlecontent, googledrive etc - turned off Enhanced Tracking Protection

What else is missing as to why it has stopped allowing me to download files? Its quite frustrating when it use to work when I enable the third cookie party and now the setup doesn't seem to accept it.

Mozilla is my default browser and prefer to use it rather always switch to Chrome for downloads.

I've contacted Google about Google Drive and they said the problem is not on their side.

So any help would be appreciated!!

OK Button greyed out on all file downloads

Similar to this article, "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files" I am unable to download any files via browser. I am up to date on versioning (Windows 10, v81.0 64-bit), and I tried all of the steps in the article.

I have also tried resetting the "security.dialog enable_delay" value (it was correct at 1000) to 0 and downloads worked again, but setting it back to 1000 (or even 500) and the problem returns.

I also noticed that whether or not I have the General Option set to "use this folder" or "ask each time", I get the same dialog box and the OK button is greyed out.

Large video files from Microsoft OneDrive repeatedly fail to download; working in other browsers

Every week, for work, I need to download at least one large video file from Microsoft OneDrive and then upload it to YouTube. (These are MP4s in the range of 200 - 800 MB.) For the last couple of months, maybe longer, the download keeps failing in Firefox. When I switch to Chrome, the same MP4 downloads with no problem.

Any idea what might be going on? Usually the file starts downloading just fine; I see the bar gradually filling up in the notification area, but then it suddenly stops and says "Failed." If I retry, the same thing just happens again.

I'm not using any kind of download manager (that I'm aware of), just relying on Firefox's default download behavior when I click on the "Download" link on the OneDrive web page (sample URL: https://olucdenver-my.sharepoint.com/personal/YADA_YADA/_layouts/15/onedrive.aspx?id=LONG_QUERY_STRING_HERE).

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

I've just suddenly had this problem starting today: downloading files through the browser is now automatically sending them to my computer's Downloads folder, even though I have my download settings set to 'Always ask you where to save files'. I double-checked to see if my settings had been reset by the update (they had not), and I even unselected and reselected the option to see if that helped anything (it didn't).
