I am having issues using firefox to download files.
It will go for a second or two, and then start over. It doesn't matter if it's across the internet or my home network. wget seems to work, and doesn't seem to have the same issues. I've tried multiple things. Restarting the browser, deleting the .mozilla direct, etc. To get it to stop, I also have to exit out of the browser completely. Thank you.
Additional System Details

I understand you are having issues downloading files with Firefox. I was also wondering if you tried restarting Firefox in Safe mode.
