Created attachment 704309 [details] Alert screenshot User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:18.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/18.0 Build ID: 20130116073211 Steps to reproduce: I tried to use the mega.co.nz website. Actual results: mega.co.nz claims that Firefox is an outdated browser and it can't fully support the website. See https://mega.co.nz/#help_basics Q: How do I install MEGA? A: You do not need to install anything. MEGA is entirely browser based and works with all current major browsers. To unleash MEGA's full potential, we strongly urge you to use Google Chrome only. Q: How do I upload files to MEGA? A: There are three ways of uploading files to MEGA using your web browser: 1. Click on the red button on the start page 2. Go to your file manager and click on the "File Upload" or (if you're using Chrome) "Folder Upload" buttons near the top 3. Drag and drop files or (if you're using Chrome) folders onto the site Q: Are there any file size limits on MEGA? A: We do not impose artificial limits on file sizes other than your available cloud drive space. However, some legacy or technically inadequate browsers require the entire file to be stored in memory for downloading (Firefox, IE10, Opera), or for both downloading and uploading (IE9, Safari 5). Moreover, when you login with Firefox, the website shows the attached alert where it complains about the HTML5 capabilities of Firefox. Expected results: Firefox should satisfy mega.co.nz requirements. Maybe we don't want to lose market share to Chrome because of this.

Here is something you guys can use to test. https://mega.co.nz/#!iNtX0JyI!QEKMfyd6KQfNfRV8CaAhOiSLEGoorrZG8iYeDXsYIIE It does not work in FireFox 21, so this gives you a starting point to read their code to see what functions they need.
I can confirm that I am unable to finish dowload from Mega in Firefox. It reaches 100% and then nothing happens. No prompt to save the file appears.
Firefox extension for mega.co.nz? https://twitter.com/KimDotcom/status/300228366697644032

FWIW I just downloaded a large (250MB) file from MEGA.co.nz successfully, without being offered an extension or whining about my browser choice. Once the webpage finished downloading the file it then showed me a normal download dialog, (served as a "blob resource", according to the download manager) which then saved the file to disk instantaneously. Maybe MEGA decided to fix their code.
I confirm that i could downlaod: https://mega.co.nz/#!iNtX0JyI!QEKMfyd6KQfNfRV8CaAhOiSLEGoorrZG8iYeDXsYIIE With Firefox 20 on Ubuntu 12.04 x89_64 I have no special extension for that and i don't have Flash on my Ubuntu.
On firefox 21 beta I'm still unable to download very large files from mega.co.nz For example https://mega.co.nz/#!qIo3lRpS!UTkeP1xdEjNfNO6G9hbW4UR8KJ9BnD-USkHXa-NtlqA is almost 1GB and will consistently stop at about 67%. Other files of similar size do the same while I can complete the download from IE9/10 or Chrome
I think this bug is actually fixed judging by Bug 704128 Comment 51. The last remaining item on MEGA's list  is selecting and uploading contents of a whole direcotry, which could be implemented by using the feature implemented in Bug 894840 (further improved in Bug 846931).  https://mega.co.nz/#blog_12
I just created an account in 26 Beta, uploaded a file, and successfully downloaded it in another window. No warnings about my browser of choice. Closing as fixed.
