I can't even open the downloaded .gif files on my computer. Not able to upload them to image sharing web sites: because they state the file is corrupted. This has been happening since the middle of the summer 2015 when firefox did an software update. .gif files can only be viewed by internet explorer because that is the coding of the file. Before that summer update, there was no problem and then the next day, I could not view .gif files downloaded with the new version. I even left firefox. Had to completely uninstall it and download another browser, which I don't like to continue my work with .gif files. I have redownloaded firefox and I want to use my favorite browser.

How do I fix this issue with .gif files? My OS is Windows 8.1 and don't tell me to upgrade to OS 10. Will not do it. I've heard too many problems with image software not working properly: even windows error of OS Not Found. So, not going there, don't suggest it.

For the past month I've stopped being able to download the PDF file for my monthly bank statements. I've exchanged multiple e-mails with my bank's Online Banking technical support, but no one there is using Firefox 40; only IE, which Avast broke for me a couple of years ago and has been non-functioning ever since.

One thing I wanted to try is to prevent Firefox from opening the PDF file into its own browser window. I just want to download the file, not view it in the browser (which is failing to happen anyway). Is there anything in about:config that I could tweak to prevent Firefox from firing up its own PDF internal viewer? What may be complicating matters is that I refuse to use Adobe as my PDF reader. BLOATWARE. Instead I use Foxit Reader, which is extremely fast, small, has never failed me in the past and continues to work perfectly when I download PDF files from all other web sites.

One more thing. When Firefox is downloading the file in question the download proceeds quite rapidly, then abruptly stops. The error message that pops up is as follows:

"Secure Connection Failed

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

• The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

• Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

One final thing: I am on a dial-up connection. But since the download appears to proceed quite rapidly (takes less than twenty seconds before it suddenly quits on me), then I rather doubt my slow connection speed could be causing the problem.


Thanks in advance for any assistance with this problem.

How to prevent DOWNLOADING of video (not merely prevent autoplay) in Firefox

This may sound like word games, but I'm not trying to be funny, merely specific.

So I'm on a network with limited bandwidth. Therefore it's critical for me to understand what settings I can configure (if any) that will prevent the DOWNLOAD of video and/or large images from web sites.

For example, your basic site nowadays probably uses HTML5 and may use that vs. the old-style Flash plug-ins to embed video. And yep classic HTML links with references to image files for the images.

Back in the day you could configure a browser to ignore these references and then the browser would not even attempt to fetch the referenced image or video files. I've recently started using Firefox again, and I'm trying to learn how Firefox handles this in the HTML5 era (or rather what dumb users like me are supposed to do nowadays).

I'm noticing most of the help literature is regarding disabling settings of the auto-PLAY feature. However, due to my ignorance of modern Firefox, perhaps I'm reading it wrong, but most of it seems to involve disabling plug-ins that activate after the file is downloaded, not preventing the actual download. Similar to if I'm using Microsoft Word to view a DOCX file from a web site, uninstalling Word doesn't prevent the DOCX file from downloading. What I don't want to do is cheerfully disable the video playing while my browser still happily downloads the video in the background... because my main goal is not to avoid the annoyance of autoplay, but my goal is to conserve bandwidth on my connection.

FYI I'm using the latest version of Firefox Quantum on Manjaro Linux.

Thanks for advice anyone can provide in helping bring me into the "now" of modern Firefox, or who can point me to any further help articles or instructions to help educate me about this. If I'm over-reading and disabling auto-PLAY also inherently disables the downloading of the associated media, super, but that distinction is not obvious in any of the documentation I've seen so far.

Thanks!!

Hello,

I could also noticed that sometimes FF does not finishes the its downloads : that point is really annoying (I'm using Download manager S3 which is really basic). Some times (specially when the Internet connexion is heavy loaded (e.g; when a lot of download are done by uGet at the same time) , some downloads simply put them in standby, without the ability to restart them which is very annoying.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Crash ID: 8442c6e4-7b2b-4192-9a98-fff3a2151021

When I try to download a file, Firefox immediately freezes and does not recover upon trying to change the folder or pressing the Save button. This does not happen in any other folder.

Things I've tried to remedy the situation (to no avail):

Disabling Hardware Acceleration, Disabling all plugins, Running Firefox in Safe Mode, Refreshing Firefox, Downgrading to version 39, Downgrading to version 35 (the last version that worked flawlessly, but doesn't anymore), Upgrading to the latest Nightly build, Installing the latest Windows Updates, Installing the latest graphics drivers, Following all the steps on this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-crashes-troubleshoot-prevent-and-get-help?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=Firefox+crashes

What can be done to remedy the situation (short of reinstalling Firefox from scratch)? I don't want to have to go back to Chrome!

Hi All,

Recently I noticed that downloading files using file manager is stopping at random times giving an error that hard drive can't keep up with the incoming data. I checked the Task Manager and noticed high I/O read bytes for FF. I was monitoring this for some time. After initial opening the amount of read data increased to 200MB within 5 seconds. Then when I was using the FF it increased to 1GB. On one occasion it reached 16BG within 4 minutes. This is causing my disk to slow down. The amount of data read I think depends on how many tabs I have open and how intensively I'm using FF.

Can someone help me to identify what is causing this?

Latest version of FF is used Add-ons and plug ins up-to-date Windows 10 x64

Thanks

everbody notice how if you dont cow-down to the mods here, and pretend to worship there replys the threads get locked. Has anybody figured out how to fix the dl issues yet. The question i posted you cannot right click save as on an image, after the image has been dl already to save it FF re-downloads the image again. Noone can produce a config setting that corrects that. so if your paying for data FF is causing you to pay double. while something is DL most of the time the dl stalls. You now cannot pause and resume a dl to get it going again, the old Dl dialogue box had a pause function, the new one 'right-click' shows a pause but its grayed out and does not function FF cannot handle multiple tabs anymore, if you open multiple tabs it freezes FF and you get a slow script error. But the same tabs can be opened in an old version of IE 7, the repeated crashes are well known without a fix, the new version seems to have numerous bugs without fixes, or explanations that you need some add-on instead of a FF function. the mere fact that FF cause double data usage without a fix or explanation is beyond inexcusable. Payinf for double data because of a code error is unbelievable. test i opened IE went to a pg open 3 tabs saved the images, and did the same in FF and it used 3.23 times more data. Every since that Tor / FF debacle when the old versions were declared no good every version of FF since then has had to many errors without fixes that it has became an industry joke. The fact that chrome and IE or better browsers now speaks volumes. I am no code writer, but since that time, every version is so slow and bug prone, that what ever attempt to say face or redemption has been a disaster.

this is the reply To answer your questions here:

   you cannot right click save as on an image, after the image has been dl already to save it FF re-downloads the image again. Noone can produce a config setting that corrects that. so if your paying for data FF is causing you to pay double. 

I'm not sure I understand this. When I click save image as then try again it works fine for me. Can you clarify what you are trying to achieve?

   while something is DL most of the time the dl stalls. You now cannot pause and resume a dl to get it going again, the old Dl dialogue box had a pause function, the new one 'right-click' shows a pause but its grayed out and does not function 

It is better to use an external Download Manager (DM) if you are on dialup or have an unreliable connection. An external Download Manager offers better support for resuming interrupted downloads than the built-in Firefox DM.

You can use the FlashGot extension to integrate an external Download Manager in Firefox. FlashGot: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/flashgot/

   FF cannot handle multiple tabs anymore, if you open multiple tabs it freezes FF and you get a slow script error. But the same tabs can be opened in an old version of IE 7, 

This is most likely the way Firefox is set up on your end. What add-ons are you running since I don't see any listed. I need some more non-personal information from you. Please do the following:

   Click the Firefox button at the top left, then click the Help menu and select Troubleshooting Information from the submenu. If you don't have a Firefox button, click the Help menu at the top and select Troubleshooting Information from the menu. 

Now, a new tab containing your troubleshooting information should open.

   At the top of the page, you should see a button that says "Copy text to clipboard". Click it.
   Now, go back to your forum post and click inside the reply box. Press Ctrl+V to paste all the information you copied into the forum post. 

If you need further information about the Troubleshooting information page, please read the article Use the Troubleshooting Information page to help fix Firefox issues.

   the new version seems to have numerous bugs without fixes, or explanations that you need some add-on instead of a FF function. 

I see you have Fx 26 installed and not the latest 27.0.1. See what's new with Firefox in version 27.0.1 http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/27.0.1/releasenotes/

   the mere fact that FF cause double data usage without a fix or explanation is beyond inexcusable. Payinf for double data because of a code error is unbelievable. test i opened IE went to a pg open 3 tabs saved the images, and did the same in FF and it used 3.23 times more data. 

Double data usage? Are you talking about a smart phone data limit or your RAM usage?

then i got this, Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems. See "Creating a profile":

   https://support.mozilla.org/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles
   http://kb.mozillazine.org/Standard_diagnostic_-_Firefox#Profile_issues 

If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from an existing profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over the problem.

   http://kb.mozillazine.org/Transferring_data_to_a_new_profile_-_Firefox 

So i replied and they locked the thread, so no answer but theirs could be shown, and shown it didnt work. the fact they did not understand the issue of save as re-dling from the web instead of saving from cache is inexcusable This is the reply It is not brain surgery, the post speaks for itself. if you are on a website and open an image in a new tab to save it, ff dl's it to cache so you can view it in that tab. if you right click to save it "save image as" ff re-downloads the image a second time, it DOES NOT save it from the already downloaded cache version of it. That is double the data usage to get a single image. if it is a 2 mb image, ff uses 2mb to open the tab and view in tab, and then uses another 2 mb to re-save the image. IT DID NOT USE TO DO THAT ON THE OLD VERSIONS. and 27 does it too. No if your internet plan charges you by the mb or gb your wasting data charges on duplicate data, because of a FF code problem. as for the numerous bugs, read the forum, and just like your answer instead of a fix, YOU suggest you use an add-on or other software instead of fixing the issue or default config problem. No-one should have to use a dl manager just because FF wont fix its dl problems. That is the biggest issue these days is the excuses and workarounds instead of fixes. The older FF all had a pause and resume option so even if the off chance it stalled you could stop and start it. now you cant, the pause button is visible but grayed out. (that is on ever persons ff I have seen) home work, friends, not just mine. and there are numerous hits about that on web searches. The ff browser is the software that reads the script, all the new versions have repeated slow script warnings when the browser stalls. that is a browser issue, not a computer, or setting, or website error. FF the browser is reading the script, and the slow script error is a FF issue, with no fix. then you try and say to upgrade again to 27 from 26. The whole issue and problem is FF instead of fixing the bugs just claims upgrade. that's fine but 27 has the same bugs as 26, but FF wont fix a "bug' under 26 so every bug up to that point that has been reported is ignored. FF will only address bugs under 27, but the code for 27 is 99.8% of 26, but all the bugs from 26 and earlier version that are migrated into 27 have to be reported individually AGAIN, and new bug reports made, but by that time there will be a 28 and again nothing will be fixed. you cant just throw out a new version every 3 days and ignore the old bugs and not fix them. FF is just becoming useless, you sure cant dl with it, pics, files, etc. no dl will complete. god help you if you have to dl a zip file. As for the settings, just an excuse. So to prove it, before replying I remove all add ons, reset to default, FF will not dl a 30 mb file. but on the same connection IE did it in under 13 seconds, and chrome 24 seconds. FF failed to complete 3 different times and stalled to the point it froze the browser the final try. That is not any other issue but the browser software and code.

How much more simplier do they want it explained. the issue with them is they did not have an answer, so they lock the thread to keep you from replyimg. Note: that i reset all the defaults and cleared all the addon thus a brand new profile not to mention the new reinstall.

then this

No need to personalize your comments here. We get it - you aren't happy with the Mozilla developers and with Firefox, but there is no need to take it out on the support volunteers.

If the sole purpose if this thread was to provide feedback to Mozilla, please do so here (using the current version of Firefox) - https://input.mozilla.org/en-US/feedback Since I don't see any support questions here, I am locking this thread.

Thanks in advance for any insight to this problem. I have a website that sells digital downloads. When customers purchase and download the .zip files via FIREFOX, the .zip is removed from the filename. When this happens, my non-tech customers think the file is "bad" because they receive a message that the file cannot be opened. The workaround is that I walk them through adding .zip to the filename. This is both time consuming and just painful. Not to mention, comments on my forum that my files "don't work" are not helpful. This problem only occurs when using Firefox, all other browsers maintain the .zip extension.

I have opened trouble tickets with my website host (3Dcart) who has responded that the problem lies with the user and not the website.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
