My main storage area for temporary files (images, movies etc.) is located on this partition. For a while already I have been unable to download any kind of files (eg. GMail attachments) -- a target file is created with 0 bytes, and nothing else happens. I thought this could be caused by one of my extensions, but today I bit the bullet and disabled them one by one. No luck. I created a new profile (no extensions installed) and confirmed that downloads worked as expected. Then I realized what was different: by default, download dir on new profiles is ~/Desktop, which is not VFAT. I then set the download dir to be the same dir on the VFAT partition, and the same wrong behavior surfaced once again. To put the nail on the coffin, I switched back to my profile and set the download dir to ~/Desktop, and downloads started working again as expected. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.set download dir to a VFAT partition 2.start a download and choose "save to disk" 3. Actual Results: file is created with 0 bytes, and download stops without any error messages Expected Results: all bytes should have been downloaded, or at least an error message should have been shown
Target VFAT partition is almost full, but still has enough storage area (780M) to hold the files I am trying to download: Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda6 54G 54G 780M 99% /windata /dev/sda6 on /windata type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uid=500,gid=100)
