Okay, so I've had a problem that comes back every so often. I have "fixed" it twice already and it keeps coming back after a few days so I want to stop it at the cause rather than address the symptom constantly, and that is that I cannot download files with Firefox.
When I clock a button to download a file, I get no download prompt, nothing shows up in my downloads history list, and of course nothing happens.
I have run Firefox in Safe Mode and the problem does not exist there. I have then attempted to turn off the few add-ons I have, and this doesn't do the trick. I can't find anything in my security settings that would stop my attempts at downloading, and HOW have I "fixed" this before? By resetting everything, (the first time I did so I lost all of my saved passwords, the second time had to fix Firefox itself with a fresh download because the reset made it stop working altogether)
I'm not doing this a third time. It's more trouble than it's worth, and for as long as I've used this browser, I'm starting to consider alternatives here (not Chrome). So I figure this is my last effort: let's see what people know about this that I can't find already.
