Downloading a file from Flash application with Firefox 64 bits is broken (slowness, "You don't have permission to save in this location")
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0 Build ID: 20170323105023 Steps to reproduce: 1 - Go on this website (for example): http://sfbgames.com/chiptone/ 2 - Generate a sound 3 - Click on the button "Save .WAV" 4 - You can browse anywhere you want, you get a message saying that you do not have the rights to save anything in that folder or location when you try to save. Actual results: 4 - You can browse anywhere you want, you get a message saying that you do not have the rights to save anything in that folder or location when you try to save. Expected results: Simply save the file.
Works for me, saved to desktop, with Firefox 54.0a2 (2017-04-17) (32 bit) & 52.0.2 (32 bit) with Flash 184.108.40.206.
It appears only with Firefox 64 bits (and Flash 32 bits in my case). When the save file dialog box is open, CPU use increases and browsing folders to save the file is slow/buggy.
