Hi there, since some days i encounter problems with downloading pdf-files. I tried this link http://personendatenbank.germania-sacra.de/books and tried to download a file by clicking "PDF" at any of the links there. I wouldn´t work. I see the download in the history (strg-j) but there is no progress. I encountered the same problem at another site.

Is there a problem with downloadlinks beginning with http:// ???

In Chrome for example the link works without any problems

Trying to allow a manufacturers' system scan after suffering longstanding desktop issues but before this can happen I have to download their support assist launcher. So the problem is, the download is blocked after the run/save window with another saying unknown publisher and so refuses to start downloading. The manufacturer says check internet connection. It's fine Now I've allowed the name of the support launcher in firewall via exceptions but it still won't load. Even tried it with firewall turned off. The download Icon TzsetupSfx, is shown in the downloads folder along with its file version 1.2.0.715 and name of publisher. So what can I do to get the download accepted by Firefox. I'm running 52.7 in win XP 3 pro. The manufacturers' URL is a www.

I am having trouble with downloading anything in Firefox. I can't download files from the internet and can't install any add-ins. I always receive a "download failed" message. I have tried all the suggestions in the download issues page, configuring my firewall and reinstalling a clean version of Firefox and nothing works.

Can anyone help me?

When I try to save a picture or download anyfile, a firefox's download window shows up to choose if I want to open the file or download it, no matter what I choose for the first time = nothing happens at all. But it always works in the second time.

I even restarted Firefox with no add-ons, fresh installed new os.. nothing seems to fix it

I need to block my default firefox downloader and use downthemall for every single download but there appears to be no easy way to do that. There used to be an addon named "Public Fox" which did exactly that but Public Fox isn't now compatible with the latest version of Firefox.

In simple words maybe I just need a version of Public Fox compatible with Firefox 55.

Firefox is holding file in open state.

This is my workflow: 1. download file to hdd 2. try to delete file (or move) from hdd - Access denied. 3. Close Firefox 4. try to delete file - OK

The same is with upload file through Choose file button. Allways i must close Firefox before manipulation with used file.

Firefox - 48.0a2 (2016-05-10)

Thanx for answer. H.

Title pretty much covers it: When I try to download .exe files Firefox says "Unknown time remaining - 0 bytes (0 bytes/sec)"

I've already tried all the tips suggested here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files#w_check-the-downloads-panel-for-blocked-downloads But none of them worked.

The only antivirus software I have installed is Windows defender. I have done a bunch of Firefox refreshes, but to no avail. And I did a fresh install of windows just days ago. I also have a lot of add-ons installed, but I was already having this issue the first time I started Firefox so it can't be them.

The issue seems to be limited to .exe files, but I'm not sure about that.

I am often downloading multiple files and, once the number exceeds 3, there is sometimes a fail on some of them. Is there a way to limit the number of simultaneous downloads and have the remaining ones in a queue?

By the way please pass it on that there are masses of people who would like to see "Down them all" return! It was a superb download manager and there is nothing out there that comes close to replacing it.

Recently, for no apparent reason, Firefox has started crashing whenever I download anything. Whether it be me hitting save when saving an image, or downloading an executable from somewhere, it's always the same. Firefox immediately hangs and stops responding, forcing me to exit out via the task manager. No error report is created in about:crashes either. I have a similar issue in Chrome, where if I download anything it stops downloading with 0 seconds remaining and just sits there, however Chrome doesn't crash during. This issue is really debilitating to my workflow, and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox using an executable I had to download and copy from another computer. If someone could help me with this issue, you'd be a godsend. Thank you for your time.

For several weeks, files downloaded during my browser session were automatically deleted when I exited Firefox. The problem may have been limited to html pages downloaded using "Save Page As...", but could have been regular downloaded files as well, but I didn't notice.

I believe that I was running 64.x (sorry I don't remember the dot release number).

I think I narrowed it down to the configuration option, "[ x ] Browsing & Download History" under Privacy & Security, Settings for Clearing History. I have always had this box checked, and downloads never disappeared before, just as the option description implies.

Then, a Firefox pop-up jumped in my face and told me to upgrade to 65.0, which I did.

Now my downloads don't seem to be deleted any more.

HOWEVER, I looked at the list of fixes for version 65.0, and saw NO MENTION of this problem, so I am asking you to confirm whether or not this was a known problem that was fixed in version 65.0, or if you think I am experiencing an intermittent problem that may return to haunt me when conditions are right.

Thanks in advance.

Yesterday all files and folders on my (win10) desktop suddenly got two blue arrows on them. I googled the problem and it turned out that the desktop folder had gotten the setting for compressing all its content turned on. I changed it back to no compression and the arrows disappeared. Today it happened again, and I changed it back again. However, I noticed that all newly downloaded files are still getting compressed. I made a new folder for the downloads (previously the went straight to the desktop), and the files I copied in to it are fine but all new downloads from FF still get compressed. When I download from Chrome it's fine.

Is this a Firefox problem? I looked through the settings but can't find anything relating to compression.

Whenever a disk is full and you download, the download fails without explanation.

Instead of the download simply failing, Firefox should tell the user that the disk is full.

The first time it happened I thought that the problem was with the downloads, until I saw that my removable disk was full.

But if a warning message appears, no guessing will be needed.
