Every time i download something downloading just stops in middle of it and i have to pause and start it. In case of downloading a large file i have to do it many times to get the downloading completed. It just stops in middle and no progress is being shown in downloading status.Every time i have to pause and start downloading.

Kindly look into this. Thanks.

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.

Do not forget to re-enable the scanning in your anti-virus software after you are finished with downloading and installing.

Your above posted system details show outdated plugin(s) with known security and stability risks.

  1. Shockwave Flash 10.0 r45

Update the Flash plugin to the latest version.

You should also get rid of these two Adobe Download Manager extensions:

  1. getplusplusadobe16290
  2. getplusplusadobe16263
