After opening my laptop since last night I can no longer download any files with Firefox. It only says it failed. I've tried some solutions mentioned like: - Firefox SafeMode - Firefox refresh - Reinstall Firefox - Clear cache and download

But as of yet not one of these solutions has worked. It is really annoying because there are no problems with the other browsers like (Edge and Chrome) and yesterday it worked fine.

Any other solutions I could try?

When I go to download something from the internet, Firefox displays a "failure to download message". However upon looking in the download file the file appeared despite Firefox saying that it did not. AVG (my current antivirus) was also updated today if that helps.

I have looked around at a bunch of other entries on the forum and from various websites, and it seems like everyone is having trouble with downloading when they have a bunch of strange add-ons and such, but this morning I all of a sudden have had all of my download attempts on the browser return "failed" when I click on the downloads arrow. It doesn't matter if I chose open or save file, it will always fail. I have tried going to about:config from the address bar and resetting all of the download preferences to default, and have tried to clear the download history. I also tried resetting firefox, all to no avail. Please help me solve this problem. I am running UBlock Origin and Adobe add-ons only.

My downloads fail instantly; creating a 0KB file and a PART file of varying size. I tried safe mode and I tried the solutions from this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files I've tried downloading a new version of flash player as suggested in a different thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1220037 But it still doesn't work. I removed myself from the family, and even restarted my pc but the downloads still fail. So I doubt it was parental controls, also I started having the problem recently, I've used firefox since about November last year and it worked without an issue, I haven't done anything to firefox since then.

Saving pictures still works though, I saved this picture I took with gyazo from firefox and it saved the picture without a problem. I've attached a picture to show what it looks like. The flashplayer was downloaded with chrome.

Every time I go to download anything in Firefox, it always fails to download and every time I try to restart the download, it fails instantly. This suddenly started happening a few days ago and I'm not sure what could have possibly caused it. I looked to some forums and possible solutions, here's what I tried:

-Refreshed Firefox -Started Firefox in safe mode w/o addons -Uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled -Made a new profile to see if my current one was bad -Checked about:config for download settings, all reset
