    Cannot download files from Firefox browser web

    Hello everybody,

    i'm using lubuntu 14.04 on an old ibook G4 1.2 GHz and i'm experiencing this strange behavior of Firefox: when i try to download a file from a webpage (in particular i discovere it on Dropbox site , but then i realized it happens with every file i try to download) Firefox doesn't start the download and, when i see the Download page, it says "Failed"
    Firefox version is 37.0.1

    thanks to everybody!

    But it doesn't happen only on Dropbox site,but on every site ...
    But i discovered that sometimes the file is downloaded but the .part extension remains appended at the end... very, very strange...

    But this firefox version ha a lot of bugs:
    - i cannot let Menu Bar and Bookmarks Toolbar show
    - Firefox doesn't save passwords
    - cannot use the search box (if i go to mozilla addons site i can install Google searchbox, but at next reboot the addon has been deleted)
    - cannot use addons

    Do you thing downgrading from 14.04 to 12.04 the system will be more stable and usable?

    Thanks

    i m facing this issue on Lubuntu . On mate everything was working (in the firefox side) ... but the 14.4.1 is really unstable on mate and there is not intention to make a 14.04.2 of mate the 15.04 is not working right or better say is not working at all and our reports was not hear by the mate dev.
