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.

On desktop, there is ZERO feedback that a download has started. This is a core UI element and shouldn't be relegated to add-ons or keeping the download window on screen at all times. Most users have a hard enough time tracking where a download was saved, let alone not knowing that a download even occurred to go looking for a file.

I'm generally happy for my downloads to all go into the same Downloads folder but occasionally I want to redirect it elsewhere. It would be cool if there was a keyboard button I can press while clicking on a link so that I get to choose where it downloads to on those occasions. Is there such a key?

Anybody help?

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.

Just got a new computer with windows-10. Nothing but problems. I had no issues with foxfire when using windows-7. But now with windows-10 .. I can not download/save charts from the web. It must be something within my/the firefox settings. ps ..... I have no problem doing this using opera. In Opera when I click "save chart as image(.png), it magically appears in my downloads as a photo.

       Step by step --> 1) Website has an option "save chart as image(.png)    2) When I do that, a windows box appears because it sees it as a text (box tells me that).  I am assuming it wants to take a picture of the graph.   3) In the box I am asked what do I want to open the file with (and it states that notepad is the default)   4) I can change the default of notepad, and I can access my C drive .. but i have no clue what to choose to open the file with and have a picture taken, then downloaded it.

ps ..... in Opera, I do not have to click here & there to get it done -- I simply click "save chart"

windows-10 firefox 60.0 no installed plugins

I would greatly appreciate help with a fix for this so I can continue using firefox. tyvm

Trying to allow a manufacturers' system scan after suffering longstanding desktop issues but before this can happen I have to download their support assist launcher. So the problem is, the download is blocked after the run/save window with another saying unknown publisher and so refuses to start downloading. The manufacturer says check internet connection. It's fine Now I've allowed the name of the support launcher in firewall via exceptions but it still won't load. Even tried it with firewall turned off. The download Icon TzsetupSfx, is shown in the downloads folder along with its file version 1.2.0.715 and name of publisher. So what can I do to get the download accepted by Firefox. I'm running 52.7 in win XP 3 pro. The manufacturers' URL is a www.

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.

With any pdf file, the downoad progress bar indicates all is well until the end when it says "a few seconds left"...for the next 5 minutes. Only then does the download folder show the file had more than 0 bytes and can it be opened. I can open Chrome, copy and paste the URL for the pdf site and download it there before Firefox is done. Or If I select the "open" radio button in the popup window, Foxit Reader allows me to immediately save a copy.

I have changed download folders and disabled all add-ons. Yesterday I did a firefox reset which seemed to fix it. After reloading and configuring all my plugins, it still worked. But today the problem is back...

Any ideas? Thanks...

I need to block my default firefox downloader and use downthemall for every single download but there appears to be no easy way to do that. There used to be an addon named "Public Fox" which did exactly that but Public Fox isn't now compatible with the latest version of Firefox.

In simple words maybe I just need a version of Public Fox compatible with Firefox 55.

If I click the shortcut, I can choose to open it directly or to download it. I choose open in with excel (2013) but before doing that, the file download first and then opens in excel. If I refresh firefox, the problem is solved but after one session, the problem occurs again. Other times, it last for a week or serveral weeks and then occurs again. Some pc's have this problem, others don't. All have the latest updates of firefox / windows... There's no logic explanation, it occors with windows 7 - 10 thanks in advance...
