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.

Hi xander857,

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

Do you have any 3rd party security measures running on your desktop? This could possibly be a reason for the interruptions in your connection, which you could troubleshoot further by our community contributors :

Did you change or modify anything in about:config or has the download location changed?
