If I use any other download manager (like FlashGot) it works a charm. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Click on any downloadable URL 2.Select not to use a different download manager if you've got FlashGot or anything smilar installed 3.Click on Save and watch it doing exactly nothing Actual Results: Nothing at all. No file created in the destination folder and nothing displayed in the download manager window Expected Results: The file I'm downloading should appear in the destination folder sooner or later

Please try cleaning up your download manager or try deleting the downloads.rdf file: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Downloads.rdf Before doing so you might want to attach the downloads.rdf file to this bug in case someone wants examine it.

I'm not attaching the file as it contains personal information that I do not want to disclose. But I noticed that my file is actually 95k in size and truncated. The last entry looks like this: <RDF:Description RDF:about="C:\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\nurfeduiBC.zip" NC:Name="nurfeduiBC.zip" NC:Transferred="1KB of 1KB"> <NC:URL RDF:resource="http://www.nurfedui.net/download.php?file=nurfeduiBC.zip"/> <NC:File RDF:resource="C:\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\nurfeduiBC.zip"/> <NC:DateStarted NC:parseType="Date">Wed Nov 01 10:32:14 ora solare Europa occidentale 2006 +203125</NC:DateStarted> <NC:DateEnded NC:parseType="Date">Wed Nov 01 10:32:14 ora solare Europa occidentale 2006 +203125</NC:DateEnded> <NC:DownloadState NC:parseType="Integer">1</NC:DownloadState> <NC:ProgressPercent NC:parseType="Integer">100</NC:ProgressPercent> </RDF:Description> <RDF:De As you can see there's a piece of an opening tag and then nothing else. Is it possible that Firefox does no validation whatsoever of this file? I've deleted the downloads.rdf file and now everything works as expected.
