we start downloading the file into a temporary directory. Do you have enough disk space in that directory? On linux it should be the directory defined by your TMPDIR environment variable. Do you have enough disk space there?
TMPDIR is not set in my environment. If the download starts in either /tmp or /var/tmp, then there is plenty of space. If it goes for my home directory, then there is space on the disc, but relatively little disc quota; it is possible that it would have just gone over-quota on the day when I reported this. But why should it not use the directory that I selected in the dialogue?
Per mscott, we start downloading *BEFORE* you specify a location, which means we can't always pick the same spot as you do, because you might come when the download is 100% complete and pick a location. Please set a TMPDIR that is acceptable <p class=hypothesis> As for the reason why... I think some people accidentally start save sessions (worse, some servers randomly send a save session w/o the user expecting it) w/o realizing they need to pick a location, and many servers will timeout and such, so it's important for the browser to get the data.</p>
