The browser saves any downloaded filesto the system "Temp" folder, not to my chosen "Downloads" on the system drive. When you select the "Always prompt for path" option, nothing changes. What could be the problem and how to fix it?

If the download gets interrupted somehow due to network problems or sleep mode of the laptop, it is not resuming from the same point as it happened before in firefox. Rather, file starts getting downloaded from the beginning.

Whenever a disk is full and you download, the download fails without explanation.

Instead of the download simply failing, Firefox should tell the user that the disk is full.

The first time it happened I thought that the problem was with the downloads, until I saw that my removable disk was full.

But if a warning message appears, no guessing will be needed.

For several weeks, files downloaded during my browser session were automatically deleted when I exited Firefox. The problem may have been limited to html pages downloaded using "Save Page As...", but could have been regular downloaded files as well, but I didn't notice.

I believe that I was running 64.x (sorry I don't remember the dot release number).

I think I narrowed it down to the configuration option, "[ x ] Browsing & Download History" under Privacy & Security, Settings for Clearing History. I have always had this box checked, and downloads never disappeared before, just as the option description implies.

Then, a Firefox pop-up jumped in my face and told me to upgrade to 65.0, which I did.

Now my downloads don't seem to be deleted any more.

HOWEVER, I looked at the list of fixes for version 65.0, and saw NO MENTION of this problem, so I am asking you to confirm whether or not this was a known problem that was fixed in version 65.0, or if you think I am experiencing an intermittent problem that may return to haunt me when conditions are right.

Thanks in advance.

Yesterday all files and folders on my (win10) desktop suddenly got two blue arrows on them. I googled the problem and it turned out that the desktop folder had gotten the setting for compressing all its content turned on. I changed it back to no compression and the arrows disappeared. Today it happened again, and I changed it back again. However, I noticed that all newly downloaded files are still getting compressed. I made a new folder for the downloads (previously the went straight to the desktop), and the files I copied in to it are fine but all new downloads from FF still get compressed. When I download from Chrome it's fine.

Is this a Firefox problem? I looked through the settings but can't find anything relating to compression.

When I try to download any file a confirmation dialog appears (see attached file). I don't need it. Its quite annoying. I just need to download a file without any confirmations. How to disable this behaviour? As you see there is no no checkbox "Do not ask me again..." or "Always perform this action when handling files of this type" in this dialog. I also set up option "browser.download.forbid_open_with" to true in about:config but it doesn't help. I need to start downloading immediately after opening a link to exe-file (this one for example): https://www.win-rar.com/postdownload.html?&L=4&f=winrar-x64-561am.exe&spV=true

Title pretty much covers it: When I try to download .exe files Firefox says "Unknown time remaining - 0 bytes (0 bytes/sec)"

I've already tried all the tips suggested here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files#w_check-the-downloads-panel-for-blocked-downloads But none of them worked.

The only antivirus software I have installed is Windows defender. I have done a bunch of Firefox refreshes, but to no avail. And I did a fresh install of windows just days ago. I also have a lot of add-ons installed, but I was already having this issue the first time I started Firefox so it can't be them.

The issue seems to be limited to .exe files, but I'm not sure about that.

Hi !

Suddenly I can't download any smaller file on firefox. It started to happen probably from last firefox update. Every file is - failed. Only files that i can download are bigger files (+100mb) but these files are also interrupted so you must always "retry" them. Smaller files simply fail to download.

I tried many things from troubleshooting tutorial but nothing works. I have many tabs, sessions, bookmarks etc that I don't want to disappear so I don't want to delete profile.

Thanks

I have a pervasive problem where downloads of moderately sized files (> 100MB) are very slow in Firefox but fast in Chrome. When I begin downloads the speed is fine at around 4MB/s but it quickly drops down to < 200Kb/s. This happens across multiple websites and when on different WiFi networks. However when I attempt to download these same files using Google Chrome they maintain the initial 4MB/s download speed for the entire duration. I have already tried running Firefox in safe mode and resetting it using the "Refresh Firefox" help page. I am running Ubuntu 18.04.

I am often downloading multiple files and, once the number exceeds 3, there is sometimes a fail on some of them. Is there a way to limit the number of simultaneous downloads and have the remaining ones in a queue?

By the way please pass it on that there are masses of people who would like to see "Down them all" return! It was a superb download manager and there is nothing out there that comes close to replacing it.

Recently, for no apparent reason, Firefox has started crashing whenever I download anything. Whether it be me hitting save when saving an image, or downloading an executable from somewhere, it's always the same. Firefox immediately hangs and stops responding, forcing me to exit out via the task manager. No error report is created in about:crashes either. I have a similar issue in Chrome, where if I download anything it stops downloading with 0 seconds remaining and just sits there, however Chrome doesn't crash during. This issue is really debilitating to my workflow, and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox using an executable I had to download and copy from another computer. If someone could help me with this issue, you'd be a godsend. Thank you for your time.
