Re: i cannot download any files from internet using firefox

It is possible that anti-virus software is corrupting downloaded files or is otherwise interfering with downloading files.
Try to disable the real-time (live) scanning of files in your anti-virus software temporarily to see if that makes downloading work.

When you were working through the posting process, did you get a chance to review this article and try the steps there: What to do if you can't download or save files. Any luck?
