Configuration is as follows: Windows/XP Home edition version 2002, SP2. One primary hard drive (C:). Several CD-ROM, CD-RW, and DVD-ROM hard drives, plus a USB connected removable hard drive (H:). Files are frequently downloaded to both the primary hard drive and to the removable hard drive (C: and H:). If I attempt to download a file and override the default destination by entering a fully pathed file name in the "File name" field of the "Save as" panel, and the default desination is on the primary drive AND the removable drive is not plugged in, the download will hang. The Windows "No disk" panel will appear offering the choices of "Cancel", "Try again", and "Continue". Regardless of which is selected, the machine will make the "bloop" noise, the panel will disappear and immediatly re-appear, and nothing else happens. This state will continue indefinately. Options are to A) bring up task manager and cancel Mozilla (which still requires that one of the "No Disk" buttons be punched), or B) insert the removable drive (if available) and press one of the buttons. Side note: If option B) is selected, the download will continue regardless of which button is pressed. It appears that the download manager is attempting to access all drives in it's recent download list even if a fully pathed filename is specified as the download target. Furthermore, it does not handle errors in this situation gracefully.
