User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: www.firefox.com I downloaded the webbrowser via firefox.com. When downloading it, it downloads to 100 percent, but when I go to open the file, i get "unspecified error" Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.downloaded file 2.waited for file to download 3.tried to open file, file would not open Actual Results: When downloading it, it downloads to 100 percent, but when I go to open the file, i get "unspecified error" Expected Results: should have let me download firefox and allowed for me to finish the installation and start using it.
So you're on IE, and downloading Firefox doesn't work for you? I would suggest you disable your firewall. If that doesn't help, I'll move the product to mozilla.org as that's the proper place for it.
Summary: downloaded file becomes unspecified error → downloaded file becomes unspecified error
no, it still does not work
What is your setup? Do you have a firewall, and what is it? What's your ISP (you're using a hotmail account), maybe they have a proxy. Are you using Google's Web accelerator, or any web accelerator for that matter?

using nctc.com, dialup connection, and not using any web acelators or anything.
please try clearing your cache as well (i forgot to mention that previously)
i did..like i said, the file does download, it just will not open upon completion. I usually do not have problems downloading.
Try a different mirror, it is possible that one of the mirrors has a bad file (which is a bad thing and shouldn't happen, but is possible). If need be, I can mirror a known good version, with the SHA and MD5 hash files for it available, so you can confirm it is identical to the file I know is working. I am apt to think it is something in your setup that is broken, but try a different mirror. To get a different mirror, just hit the download link again, it goes through a round robin type download spooler, so you are unlikely to have the same mirror the second time around.
