Firefox can't download files

Every week or so firefox becomes incapable of downloading any files regardless of site, size, or filetype. Running in troubleshoot mode and deleting all plugins does not solve issue, only solution is to refresh/reset firefox, which solves the issue until it starts up again, I haven't found any catalyst except for downloading, but that might just be when I notice it.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for a download manager.

This download manager works separately from the browser. The browser tells it what to download, and off it goes. It is a powerful modern download accelerator and organizer for Windows and Mac.
