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I think these are outdated methods I only found on non-official sources, but will mention them just in case: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

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

Hello community, would anyone kindly help me with this issue I'm facing? How do I export Logins and Passwords on Firefox running 78.10.1esr (64-bit) on a Mac. The export funtion is not available here and I know the this option is only available on 79 and after, but I'm using a mid 2012 Mac Pro running 78.10.1esr. Is there any way I could still export the logins?

I occasionally visited this site https://referti-empoli.uslcentro.toscana.it/portalepaziente_user/user-login (it's a site managed by the local health authorities). I am reported that a safe connection cannot be established with the message PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. I am not shown any option to consider this site SAFE (no matter what, it's SAFE and I need to access it occasionally). I also use ESET anti-virus software. I can access through other browser, at least the show me it couldn't be safe but allow me to go on. I don't want to switch browser once in a while to navigate. I want to use Firefox in any case (or switch to another one that allows me to). How can I make it work (apart from deleting cache, temp files and history, which did not work)? Thank you.

I use 3 profiles (work, private and media) side by side. When I open external links I have no control over which profile will open the link. The link is opened right away (so no profile manager interference) in a random profile. I do want it to open right away, but ideally would like to easily set a priority order for profiles to open the external links without having to restart the profiles.

THIS keeps on happening at least 6 - 8 a year. ive cleared the cache off Firefox, rebooted it, got a now TESCO site and it is still the same. Yet Google fires up all right all the time. I have got 3 pc of a type and they all can get TESCO without any trouble. Ive been with you for 20yrs and am reluctant to change noW. Tesco just say your better of using Google than Firefox, which isn't much help. Yes they can get me on (sometimes) but they all ways say Google is the one really.

There must be something i can do?
