Firefox download of files not working or not finishing for one user on one computer account but does for another on a separate account.

Firefox on mac osx with automatic updates for OS and Firefox up to date for over a year recently started producing failed downloads (probably between 9-13 and 9-14, around the time of the last Firefox update). What has been tried to fix this: everthing from the Mozilla help pages “What to do if you can't download or save files” asserted to be based on information from “Unable to save or download files (mozillaZine KB)” with the exception of dealing with the "plist" file since that could not be found in this OS installation. If anything has changed through these efforts, it has been to cause the failure to be more severe. Before attempting any fixes, the downloads usually produced a zero-byte file of the expected name and an apparently full-length download file with the expected name and a ".part" extension (or an abbreviated download file with a jumbled alphanumeric name and ".part" extension). After all the fixes were attempted, with the additional trial of patching the profile from TimeMachine back-ups well before the initiation of the problems, and then a final effort of a complete Firefox re-install (freshly downloaded via the separate account on the computer then Firefox removed prior to a fresh install), downloads now fail for that one problem account producing only the zero-byte file of the expected name and no ".part" files yet seen again. Created new profiles in Firefox under the same computer account inherit the same download problems (tried twice).

FYI: in addition to the troubleshooting information below, the computer account with the Firefox problems reports another four plug-ins (Blue Jeans, RBlue Jeans and "install" for both). As these do not show up on this computer account where the Firefox browser has no download issues, this may matter. But since the download issues were independent of Safe Mode operation for Firefox, presumably the plug-in differences would not matter.

Last few releases of FF have been very cumbersome on my MacBook Pro with constant crashes and now I am having issues logging into websites especially financial ones such as Capital One or Suntrust.

Capital One gives a 400 bad request and SunTrust simply just reverts to the home page after trying to login from it. This has been an ongoing problem and I know about the solution of corrupt cookies or cache but for it to happen over and over there is more at play that is causing this because when I switch to Google Chrome there is no issue and the sites are working fine.

I also can't access .aspx pages it just renders blank and I have to again use Chrome. FF used to be my go to browser but now it just became a headache that consistently has issues.

Statement on Firefox 33 and self-signed certificates

Dear Mozilla,

Your decision to drop support for self-signed certificates is causing problems all around in LANs, VPNs, and domain networks both home and corporate which employ SSL but use self-signed certs. Despite it being understanding that it is generally ill-advised to access sites with such problems, further deciding that this minority of exceptions should be abandoned altogether in a world web full of so many shades of grey and complex setups is not a responsible decision.

Please implement methods for us to be able to coexist with these updates, as suddenly dropping support for the plenthora of routers, domains, websites and other sources using such a setup, many of which cannot be quickly updated or even at all, is a big problem.

The internet engineering taskforce has not issued any such directives, nor have broader plans to drop support for self-signed certificates been announced. In the lack of a transitioning climate away from this setup or any plans to do so, Mozilla has unilaterally decided to remove support.

Please remember that you have a large userbase and thus a responsibility to keep available means of access that are in common use by the world. Self-signed certificates still very much play a role in the ecosystem, and they will continue to exist for as long as there is a need for encryption on intranets.

Thank you!

I start off by going to Squarespace.com and then go to the login button. I enter in my e-mail address and password and it takes me right back to the login screen. However, the address is clearly loaded to my site with the /config bit at the end of the address loaded.

Also worthy of note...when I enter in the wrong password it will happily tell me the PW is incorrect.

Any ideas or suggestions? I just switched from Chrome after 3 repeated crashes this AM and this is equally frustrating.

Hi there,

We have Firefox 30 on one of our servers and it will not let us access any of our internal sites. It gives a message:

401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials.

It doesn't even prompt for credentails. Other browsers work fine. I tried a solution from a previous post but it didn't work: "you can try to enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1. double-click it and change its value to true."

What else could be causing this issue?

Thanks, Rhonda

Hi All,

We are experiencing an issue with random intermittent Mozilla Proxy Authentication prompts. We are running Mozilla firefox in a Windows domain and using a clearswift proxy server. I've tried a large number of configuration changes with Firefox but still get these annoying prompts. This obviously looks bad to our user base. We do not suffer the same issues with IE11 or Google Chrome.

Please can anyone help before we look to remove this software and go for an alternative browser?

Many Thanks,

Kirk

Since last night, I cannot get into Hotmail with any regularity. Sometimes I get in, and when I check I can see the trusted certificate details. Other times I get the warning that Hotmail is NOT a trusted site and the certificate shows this info also. This can happen all in one session of using the computer. Sometimes I am logged into Hotmail okay, but when I try to send an email, I can't. Other times I CAN send. I am using Firefox but this happens also on Explorer. My date and time are correct. I have run my virus checker; all is okay there. I can access Hotmail on my phone with no problems. I am using Windows 8.1. Hotmail has worked for months on this Toshiba computer and for years on other computers. I trust it but don't even get an option to allow it when i get the "untrusted" notice.

If this problem is not resolved quickly, I have no alternative but to remove Firefox and use another browser.

I use Firefox 34 on my Windows 8.1.

On my home network with a Dlink Router dir-655 then Firefox starts immediately with no delay and I have no issues. On some other wifi connections* I have noticed that Firefox take ~60 seconds to start, every time I start the browser. Once it has started I have no issues browsing. When I experience the issue I tried to start in safe mode, then FF starts immediately. I also tried to get rid of plug ins, add-ons, disable antivirus etc....but only safe mode makes the browser start faster (normal start speed)

What can be the issue? What in a network connection can cause FF to start slower?

I have no clue where to look anymore.

  • For instance, I tried to use my Samsung Android phone as wifi hotspot and then I get the issue. But if connect to this wifi hotspot on my Windows 7 machine I have no issues at all
