The error window offers cancel, try again, & continue options.
If I click on continue repeatedly it will eventually download, but on
a large file the message may pop up again near the end.

This problem occurs probably 7 or 8 times out of ten.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
This problem can also be triggered by invoking the Download Manager (ctrl-j). It
may be a coincidence, but the number of "no disk in drive" popups I see
corresponds to the number of virtual drives I have attached to my system (Samba
shares, in this case). There are eight of them and I get eight popups.
I have the same problem. Whats annoying is that the dialog reappears in an 
endless loop after clicking "Cancel" or "Try Again". After Clicking "Continue" 
about 25 times, I managed to get the download to continue.
I too see this - appears to be caused by download manager storing links to files
on my zip drive. The error only appears when there is no disk in the drive. 
I just got this message clicking a link to a regular web page. It was referring
to D: (my CD-ROM drive), which I've obviously never downloaded files to.

This was on XP as well. I upgraded to Firefox 0.10.1 (PR1) from 0.9 last night.

It looks like this isn't just related to the download manager.

I only got the message once, however, and the Continue button worked just fine.

This is the link I clicked:

Going back to the page and clicking it again worked normally.
I just installed Firefox 1.0PR and am experiencing this error when I tell it to
download to my desktop. The path it specified was the same as in the description
except for the end, mine ends with "dr7".

If I hit cancel a few times, the download continues.
