firefox/iceweasel has worked just fine for years
I just upgraded my home jessie machine to stretch. That went very
smoothly, so far only one exception. I can no longer download anything
with this browser. I've reinstalled, cleared out my profile, run in
'safe' mode (no add-ons such as no-script). I've tried other
destinations, including "ask me" (it never asks). I only get the
truncated error message:
"could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents of that
Turned off my firewall - no change. Tried downloading from other sources,
Epiphany downloads the same files with no problem.
Has anyone else had this problem recently ? Looking at the Debian bug
reports I saw a year-old report that looked kind of similar.
Thanks for any insights!
