When downloading a file which is larger than the remaining space on the target drive, the Firefox 1.0 Download Manager simply stops when drive space runs out. It doesn't seem to lock up. The Download Manager window doesn't close. There are no special messages displayed about insufficient drive space and the download progress indicator doesn't read "Pause" or "Stopped" or "Done" or "Complete" or "Terminated" or any other kind of message. It appears to continue to try downloading but the percentage complete doesn't change and there's no effort to post any kind of message to indicate what's holding up the download. To be fair, this first occured to me when using the Download Manager Tweak extension (v.0.6.3). Since I don't want to lose what I've typed here, I'll have to uninstall the extension and see if it does the same thing. I hope to be able to amend this bug report later. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Check how much drive space you have. 2. Download a file that's larger than the available drive space. 3. Actual Results: Download Manager window stays open and download doesn't progress beyond the percentage it stopped at... however, it's not locked up and can still be cancelled. Expected Results: It would be best if the FireFox Download Manager posted an insufficient drive space message as soon as the download is initiated, NOT after the download has progressed for a while and drive space reaches zero. It would also be great if the download remained listed in the Download Manager but PAUSED until drive space was made available. At that time, FireFox could display a message (perhaps in a slider like the one that reports concluded downloads) that reminds the user that there is a pending & incomplete download and then asks whether to a) Start/resume download, b) Hold download until later, c) Cancel download. Although I doubt if it's relevent, at the time, I was using the Silver Skin 2.6.3 Theme, and had the following extensions installed: - Tabbrowser Preferences 1.2.2 - MR Tech's Local Install 1.2.5 - Download Manager Tweak 0.6.3 (possibly related) - OpenBook 1.2.0 - FLST 0.8.1 - DictionarySeacrh 0.7 - Bandwidth Tester 0.4.1 - Copy Plain Text 0.2.1 - Forecast Fox 0.5.9 - ieview 0.86 - SmoothWheel 0.43.1.20041107 - xMirror 0.1.1

bug 257812 seems to be more about making the temp-dir a pref, not the general problem Firefox has with full drives. Should this bug be reopened?
