Firefox won’t work correctly with my Synology disk station

Posted

I don’t know exactly when this problem started, but for some unknown reasons I can’t download files through Firefox from my Synology NAS File Station, when I try to download a folder I get an error “ could not be saved, because the source file could not be read” . This happens when I try to download more than 1 file, if try to download only 1 file, no problem, it works like it should, when i try to download a folder containing more files I get the previous mentioned error, now, why do I post this problem here and not a Synology forum, because unfortunately on any other browser this works like it should, no mater how many files I try to download, and second, I like to much this browser to give up on it and i’m Almost sure this issue can be solved, so... if any one has any idea

I called for more help.

This download manager works separately from the browser. The browser tells it what to download, and off it goes.

http://www.freedownloadmanager.org It is a powerful modern download accelerator and organizer for Windows and Mac.

@FredMcD, thanks but a download manager is not a solution, i need this to function like before or like any other browser. @McCoy, tried the link you posted and read through all posts...and the only way i got it to work was by downgrading Firefox to version 66.0.5, all versions above this imediately throw the previews mentioned error.

If a developer is reading this thread, please patch this problem in a future update, thanks!

Hi Daniel, if you have patience and a sense of adventure:

Someone who owns one of these Synology devices will need to test it in the development versions of Firefox to determine whether the bug has already been fixed in a future release. These are the best two for testing:

  • Developer: beta test version of Firefox 69 (due for release Sept. 3)
  • Nightly: unstable release destined to be released as Firefox 70

Both of those editions should install side-by-side with regular Firefox and not cause any local settings cross-over or contamination; you probably should not connect either of them to your Firefox/Sync Account, if you use one.

Interested?

Great ! When you've done that; would you be so kind as to post a link to it here ? Then we can refer to your bug report when others report the same problem, you see.
