Error message: E:\Users\Sarah\AppData\Local\Temp\xxxxx.xxx.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator.

I do want to mention upfront that this issue is also affecting Chrome and IE. It's not solely a Firefox issue, but I'm hoping someone here can help me anyways.

  • This happens for any filetype, from any source.
  • It started happening about a month ago.
  • Prior to that, I installed a new motherboard, RAM and processor. I'm fairly certain there was a period between these events in which it worked fine, but I am mentioning it just in case it's relevant.
  • If it's a small file and I try repeatedly, it sometimes will eventually download.
  • Even if a large file successfully starts downloading, it will eventually fail. It usually fails immediately though.
  • I sometimes have success downloading the same file in Chrome, but it also often fails. IE as well.

I have tried the following:

  • Used Refresh Firefox
  • Cleared download history
  • Changed download location
  • Reset browser.download values
  • Disabled firewalls and antivirus/spyware
  • Reinstalled Firefox using Run as Admin (first uninstalled previous version and deleted all program files that I could find, including profiles)
  • Cleared cookies and cache
  • Ran in safe mode
  • Verified Temp folder filepath was valid
  • Verified the PART file was created in that path -- it exists until I hit OK on the error message, then it disappears
  • Ran Firefox as admin

I think these are outdated methods I only found on non-official sources, but will mention them just in case:

  • I found some sources that said to delete Compreg.dat; I could not find this file in the place listed, nor could I find it with a search of the entire drive
  • Verified places.sqlite was not set to read-only
  • Removed read-only from entire profile folder and subfolders

In Options > Security: 'Block dangerous & deceptive content': true, 'Block dangerous downloads': false

Internet speed test: 58.96 Mbps download; 148.04 Mbps upload. No connection loss.

This problem is absolutely maddening. I'll be so grateful if anyone can help me out!! :( Thank you in advance, I know this was a long read!

I have been watching football on one or two Sky Sports websites through Virgin Media which redirects me to the Sky Sports log on which I do as a Virgin Media Customer. This has been running smoothly for well over a year. Suddenly it has stopped with the error message "Secure Connection Failed". I have tried adding Sky Sports to the allowed web-sites on my security (Kaspersky and Malwarebytes) and clearing the caches as instructed by Mozilla but to no avail. What do I need to do to enable me to continue watching Sky Sports on my laptop. I'm afraid Virgin Media support told me to go back to the shop from which I bought the laptop, now 3-4 years ago.

I changed the page setting parameters on the print preview page. When I pressed apply the screen changed to "preparing,,," and froze. Now nothing will print but the small title header across the top. When I try to go into print preview to change it, the program dumps my selection and I go back to the home screen in the e-mail. I have tested my printer in other programs and its working fine.

I had to reinstall my Firefox web browser because of the XPCom error I kept receiving. For one of my jobs that I work remotely, I had my information saved on my old Firefox web browser. Now that I had to reinstall the web browser, my information is lost and I do not know how to retrieve. My question is, once a password is saved, you guys on the backend have the ability to retrieve it? Please let me know as this would be greatly helpful for my job.

I used to scan prints on my Brother printer/scanner (MFC-9330CDW) and download them to folders on my computer. In the past I was able to download the scans (pdfs) to any folder on my desktop. Now I am unable to do that. I would like to be able to correct that issue, because I use the scanning to save printed references for genealogical research. Please let me know how to get it back to the way it was, it is too complex and cumbersome the way it is now. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

FIREFOX 75 UPDATE: How to change internet address bar dropdown to display most visited sites?

How to change the browser.urlbar.maxRichResults in about:config to display more recently viewed websites in the drop-down list in the address bar after Firefox 75 update?… (xem thêm)

How to change the browser.urlbar.maxRichResults in about:config to display more recently viewed websites in the drop-down list in the address bar after Firefox 75 update? I only see 6 results when I had it set to about 20 before.

I have gone to browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus and changed that setting to False thinking that would help but all that has done is eliminated the entire drop-down list altogether when the address bar is clicked.

I checked my browsing privacy options in the settings menu within Firefox and it appears everything remains exactly as before, prior to update. Maybe there is some special combo of settings and about:config options that can bring the drop-down menu back that I enjoyed so much prior to update version 75.

Any recommendations?

When I post links from Twitter, Instagram and Imgbb.com to a discussion forum that I belong to, the images are blocked when I am using Firefox for Windows. This is a very recent problem (just the past week or so). I have no problem seeing the images using Firefox for Android on my phone or Microsoft Edge.

I recall there being an update a week or so ago, so I am wondering if it has something to do with that. Did it change one of my settings?

Thank you,

Jodi

On a substantial portion of the pages I try to load I get the "The connection has timed out" page. Sometimes as many as 30% or more of the pages I try to load. I can't say this happens all the time, but I've noticed in a lot of cases there is no activity in that bottom status line about a site being contacted or some google ad page is loading or whatever Just nothing at all

I suspect my ISP (verizon DSL) has been restricting my bandwidth -- the situation wasn't this bad a few years ago When I called to ask about it, the call center agent said that I had signed up for a slow connection -- the only thing I signed up for was DSL -- and there was nothing she could do about it

I check www.dailylocal.com for old hometown news, but it's been timing out every time for a couple weeks I'm pretty sure that they're not a first-class operation, but I'm also wondering if Verizon could be keeping a blacklist of sites since some of these sites keep timing out while others sail through

I'm not at all asseting Fireforx is an issue The sites won't load with Edge either But I trust Firefox folks more than most others Any info you can provide, I'd appreciate I'd love to know how I can monitor real time the bandwidth Verizon is providing me

Thanks
