When downloading a very large file which is larger than the free space on the partition which holds the temporary folder, the file should be saved directly to the target destination. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Attempt to download a file larger than the free space on your temporary folder's drive to a drive where there is sufficient space. Actual Results: The download will consume all the disk space on the temporary folder's drive, then fail. Expected Results: The browser should have detected that there was insufficient space and opted to save the file directly to the target instead of the temporary directory.

Which command are we talking about? I'm going to assume you meant "save target link as...", because that would cause a network event and probably trigger download manager. "Save page as", should read out of cache, and presumably not write to local temp space.
