When downloading a (large) file using Mozilla, it seems that it temporarily stores it both in /tmp, but also in $HOME/.mozilla/<user>/<some id>/Cache. If free space is too small on the $HOME partition, Mozilla breaks out telling you that there is not room enough on /tmp/xxxxx.gz. It then copies the 'corrupted' file to the selected destination and removes both temporary files.
