Foxfire freeze and has to be hard killed. Download popup window will not stay open but for about 2 seconds when using "ctrl J". I did not know I had to clear the DOWNLOAD MANAGER area. It was set to MANUAL CLEAR. Foxfire freezes when I try to CLEAR DOWNLOAD MANAGER. Is there a way to use Windows Explorer to delete the DOWNLOAD HISTORY files. If I can get this CLEARed I will set to CLEAR at completion of DOWNLOAD as I don't need it. The DOWNLOAD MANAGER is a real drag on download time. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Use FOXFIRE to DOWNLOAD file from URL and FOXFIRE will freeze everytime. 2.DOWNLOAD worked fine until today. I think the capacity was exceeded and something broke. 3. Actual Results: Foxfire freezes! ARG! Expected Results: Foxfire should have downloaded the file from the internet site to a directory on my C hard drive.
Fixing summary. I'm going to assume that the reporter meant Firefox.
Summary: DOWNLOAD causes FOXFIRE to FREEZE and a HARD KILL is NECESSARY → Download causes Firefox to freeze and a hard kill is necessary
Hum... I'm experiencing something similar, but I have an explaination for what's happening to me. Some days ago I've downloaded something directly on my notebook share, that is, on a network path: \\mynotebook\shared\xxx Now firefox freezes whenever I try to download something and ask it to save it to disk, presumably because the notebook is not connected. I have to kill Firefox since there is no way out. Deleting the last download directory from userPref.js solves the problem.
I have experienced this problem (Firefox freezing during "Save Page As" downloads and requiring a hard kill) between 20-30 times in the past 3 months. I upgraded Firefox to the new version, and it still happens. I am currently using Firefox 1.0.2 on a Macintosh iBook G4 running OSX version 10.3.9. This tends to occur when I am doing multiple downloads in rapid succession. It does not matter if I switch sites from which I am downloading or if they are all from the same site. I tried only downloading 'page as text' or 'page as HTML' instead of 'complete Web page', but it still happens. It does not happen during normal browsing, only during downloads of pages. I've been avoiding it but copying text or source and pasting it into BBEdit, but this is not always an option for my research needs. What I tend to do is kill the app, restart the computer, and try to remember where I was when it crashed. I am also going to try increasing the memory allocation for the application.
