User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10.1

I was trying to download a file and Firefix keep crashing with this error:
"The instruction at "0x0051fae" referenced memory at "0x00000000", The memory
could not be "read"."

I found that there was only 76KiB's of free space on Drive C:, which is
presumably where Firefox was using the temp folder. Upon freeing up some space,
the download worked without crashing.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make Disk space low in temp folder (usally on C:)
2. Download a file bigger than free space
3. Crash
Actual Results:  
Crash.
"The instruction at "0x0051fae" referenced memory at "0x00000000", The memory
could not be "read"."

Expected Results:  
Told the user that there is not enough temporary space to download.
