        Downloading /tmp-1

        /!\ /tmp-1 could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents
            of that folder.

            Change the folder properties and try again, or try saving in a
            different location.

case two: at http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/d2.php left click on rootstrap_..._v2.2 (it probably wants you to click a button or such to set a cookie first)

not readily reproducible.
I've seen this a couple of times too in the last few days. Usually trying to download the file again fixes the problem when it occurs.

I'm having trouble reproducing this.  The steps to reproduce here are pretty vague.  Can you post in fairly explicit detail exactly the list of actions / clicks that leads to this error?  In particular, I'm trying to understand if/how the filepicker is involved here.

I can usually reproduce it by setting "Always ask where to save files", then initiating several downloads in sequence. Usually, the 2nd or 3rd simultaneous download will result in the /tmp-1 error instead of the file picker.
Blocking for investigation ... can someone figure out what's causing this, please?

I tried to download files many times
but I can't reproduce with today's build.
I think this is fixed too.

-> Fixed per comment #7.

If there's a general download litmus testcase per platform, this could work well for linux as on other platforms, the parent of the temp directory is generally user writable. "download a bunch of open-with files" (On linux, does the error show up right away during/before the open-with dialog? That could simplify testing if the user can just start and cancel downloads instead of waiting for them to finish.)

My brother Jeff emailed me a few days ago, telling me he experienced this bug on a daily basis, and that the recent nightlies (running under Ubuntu Linux) have indeed fixed this.

My own testing--and others--confirms this to be true, using:

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a9pre) Gecko/2007110604 Minefield/3.0a9pre
