So I've been having this problem for a little while now. It is the most annoying thing I've ever had to endure. I'll start downloading a cd and at a random time the download will just stop. No matter what site I download from (rapidshare, megaupload, mediafire, etc) the problem persists. I have no idea what the problem is. The strange thing is uTorrent downloads without a problem. Any suggestions?

Does the download get stuck at 100%? If that's the case, you just have to wait a little (30mins) for it to finish...

The first and most obvious thing that I would try is to clear your cache and everything and make sure you have the most recent version of Firefox. Make sure you clear history/cookies/cache/etc.

You might need to empty the list in the Downloads box too. If that gets too long, it can cause problems. Open the Downloads and click "Clean up". If it's not in your toolbar as an icon, go to Tools-Downloads. You'll find it there.

I have the most current release of firefox. I also have it so all my history and cookies are deleted as I exit firefox. Those do not seem to be the problem. Thanks for the responses guys. =)
