Similar to this article, "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files" I am unable to download any files via browser. I am up to date on versioning (Windows 10, v81.0 64-bit), and I tried all of the steps in the article.

I have also tried resetting the "security.dialog enable_delay" value (it was correct at 1000) to 0 and downloads worked again, but setting it back to 1000 (or even 500) and the problem returns.

I also noticed that whether or not I have the General Option set to "use this folder" or "ask each time", I get the same dialog box and the OK button is greyed out.

Previously, firefox had the system to automatically resume the failed downloads, but now it's not happening that way.

If the download gets interrupted somehow due to network problems or sleep mode of the laptop, it is not resuming from the same point as it happened before in firefox. Rat… (read more)

If the download gets interrupted somehow due to network problems or sleep mode of the laptop, it is not resuming from the same point as it happened before in firefox. Rather, file starts getting downloaded from the beginning.

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

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.

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.

Hi,

my Firefox setup on a linux installation becomes nearly unusable during downloads or playback of videos. The system load is constantly at 25-30% and firefox does not react at all or with a lot of lag (more than 10 seconds to select a different tab). In addition to that, the downloads are slow and also opening the downloads windows is slow. Safe mode does not fix the issue, disabling addons does not fix it, a clean profile also does not fix it. What else can I try?

System: OS: Manjaro Linux (Current version), Kernel 4.20. Hardware: Notebook with Intel i5-3320M (4) @ 3.300GHz, 16 GB of RAM, SSD Drive RAM use is somewhere around 3-4 GB, depending on the number of open tabs. SWAP is available but not used.

Any idea anyone? What data should I provide?

I have always been able to delete just downloads, that functionality does remain, however, some times it works, most of the time it doesn't work, simply can't delete the downloads.

I don't want to delete history and downloads, just downloads.

Any idea why this function works randomly?

Thanks.

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.

When I try to download any file a confirmation dialog appears (see attached file). I don't need it. Its quite annoying. I just need to download a file without any confirmations. How to disable this behaviour? As you see there is no no checkbox "Do not ask me again..." or "Always perform this action when handling files of this type" in this dialog. I also set up option "browser.download.forbid_open_with" to true in about:config but it doesn't help. I need to start downloading immediately after opening a link to exe-file (this one for example): https://www.win-rar.com/postdownload.html?&L=4&f=winrar-x64-561am.exe&spV=true

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

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.

Hi !

Suddenly I can't download any smaller file on firefox. It started to happen probably from last firefox update. Every file is - failed. Only files that i can download are bigger files (+100mb) but these files are also interrupted so you must always "retry" them. Smaller files simply fail to download.

I tried many things from troubleshooting tutorial but nothing works. I have many tabs, sessions, bookmarks etc that I don't want to disappear so I don't want to delete profile.

Thanks
