In general, "Save Link Target As..." fails silently. Download manager is not started. Direct links to targets (ie, MS files without "save as...") fail with message "(random file name in temp) could not be saved, because the source could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator." This occurs with both internet files and local links. This is a new problem, occurring only after updating to 1.7.12. All previous versions of Mozilla have worked correctly. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click on a file link, or 2. Right-click on a file link. Actual Results: A click results in the error message described in "details" above. A right-click fails silently. Expected Results: Download manager should pop-up, and the file should download.
See Bug 180672. Try the URL, does that help? Do you see any errors in the JS console? Or try to delete the file compreg.dat in your Mozilla program folders.
Reinstalled Mozilla 1.7.12. Downloads now work correctly.

Reinstalling deletes the file too, so I guess this was it.
