For some reason, whenever i download files using firefox, they tend to hang every few seconds or so. basically, i don't even think it downloads anything whilst it's hanging, so it ends up taking much longer than the estimated time remaining says.
here are the add-ons i currently have installed:
idm cc (internet download manager integration)
mouse gestures redox
tab mix plus
i remember the downloads being fine a month or so ago, so i am really baffled as to what may have triggered this. i would really appreciate the help to fix this problem for me.
