I can’t download anything from my computer. I am using Mozilla Firefox version 5. Yesterday, I tried to download any file like exe file or rar file. It asked for download location. When I gave the location, it stated that download failed.

What is the problem here?

  • Try to remove the download folder or history. It might be the reason why you couldn’t download anything. Go to “Firefox”  menu options,  then select  “Tools” followed by “Downloads”  and click “Clean-up”.
  • If you found that your download history is empty, it is best to manually remove it from your download folder.
  • You can manually remove all the history downloads by leaving “Firefox”. Then go back and open again the “Firefox Profile”. Take note that the Firefox download directories could be located in the downloads.rdf file.
  • After going to “Firefox profile”  simply remove the downloads.rdf file
  •  Or you can  just simply change the location of your  Firefox downloaded file.
  •  Go to “Tools” then “Option” and the Download Options will be shown on your monitor screen.
  • Now select the“Browse” tab to choose a new folder.  With this you can choose either you want Firefox to inform you to where would you like the files to be saved or you can simply shut off the download directories.

Have you tried to scan your computer for viruses? Or check your firewall? If you already tried these steps and it still didn't work, open your browser and then click Tools> Internet Options> Security Tab and then under the Custom Level Button scroll down to Downloads and then Automatic Prompting for File Downloads. Click to Enable and then click OK.

Well, if you are facing problem with  downloading, there might be multiple solutions around:

  1. First of all, clear the download history of Mozilla Firefox.
  2.  Try to change the download location of your downloading,
  3.  If there is antivirus problem, stop your antivirus and then try again.
  4. Check your download options if there is any restriction that is not allowing you to download exe or attach files.
  5.  Finally,  if you are using any download manager, uninstall them, then reboot your PC.

Your problem will be solved. It’s because your download manager is not registered.
