It works on most videos but there are several that won't download properly. Whenever I try it says "0 bytes" and the video won't play with Media Player, Realplayer, or any other program. Does anyone know how to fix this or another Firefox addon for me to try? I also tried downloading the videos with Realplayer's download too but that won't work either.

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 recently downloaded the latest version of Firefox 54 for Linux. Everything worked great however even after making it the default browser links from external programs such as Pidgin won't open in a new tab in firefox. Instead a new window will pop-up with my home page. I've tried solving it by uninstalling the other version of firefox I downloaded from the repository (Firefox 45)

I fear it might be because I didn't really install it, instead I just ran the file directly form the download labed just firefox. It seems to be working fine and there was no README file so I assumed that was the way it should've been done.

For the last several versions of Firefox, all attempts at PDF downloads fail. On rare occasions I can go to Save As..., get a dialogue box and save the file.

After "Refresh"ing Firefox, it now by default saves a file with the page title, not the filename. I can no longer find out how to change this default behaviour (presumably I'd used an addon that has been deleted). This is extremely inconvenient - many archives have large numbers of filenames like "<number>.txt", e.g. "234567.txt", but all with the same title. I don't understand why keeping the old Firefox default was not made an option when you changed to saving by title!

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.

Hi. I'm deployed with the Army in Romania. When I found out I was deploying, I had a huge library of movies, tv, and music on an external hard drive. I have it synched with my home system, and to remedy this, got a second external hard drive and a computer with a wee tiny baby sized hard drive (25gb). I never download anything onto it, but it fills up just the same. Now it's gotten so full that I can't save a single thing. My external has 500 free gigs, so I went into Mozilla Options to change the destination folder. Seems easy, right? It won't take though. Not even for a second. I click on the "Browse" button next to where it says: Save files to: (default setting is downloads). I then browse to the external, which, by the way, is working very well otherwise. I get to my desired "new" download folder, select the folder, then the Save files to: still says "Downloads."

I like Firefox, and prefer it to anything out there. My wife likes Safari and Opera as well as Firefox, but I use these only when on her computer. Like most sane people, I loathe Internet Explorer Version: All, but am now at my wits end on this problem. I'm still going to use Firefox for most things, but will use the detestable IE only because I can't dl even a different browser (like I don't even have 10 KB of space!) If you have a fix plz let me know. Downloading a patch is currently not an option, as again, I can't download anything at all.

I added the Download toolbar (which I had used before), but it didn't work either. I was able to download the files I needed using IE, so the problem doesn't seem to be either the files or the website, so it's probably FireFox-related

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.
