On all my machines I keep the disk cache size set to 0kb for various reasons. When the disk cache is set to 0kb, extenions will fail to install directly, unless I first save them to my desktop and then drag them to the Firefox window. On setting the cache to 512kb, installation starts to work correctly again. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set browser cache size to 0kb and clear your cache (clearing might be optional) 2. Go to http://toolbar.google.com/firefox/extensions/suggest/install.html 3. Click 'Agree and install'. 4. Click 'install'. 5. Observe output in the attached screenshot. Actual Results: "Because: download error" message appears. Expected Results: Extension should be installed correctly, or alternatively an error indicating that the extension installer cannot function unless disk cache is enabled should be displayed.
