Browser out of space ?


I haven't seen this before. I just installed a new distro, Fedora Core 3, which came with Firefox. When I try to download something, I get 'could not download <file> because: Out of Space'
Then I get 'Insufficient disk space. Error code: -235'
Believe me, I have plenty of disk space. I checked out the Firefox website, and tried all the Help and Search I could think of, and found nothing on this.
Has anyone else had this problem?

hi,
check out the destinition which you are specifying for the download (may be that particular drive is lacking in space)
problem should not be with firefox. But check out by using some other browser like konqueror or netscape.

I'd agree with ruudra -- it may simply be that your default "save to" directory is on a partition that is fully occupied, rather than to a directory on a partition that has plenty of free space.

Personally, I don't want Firefox to assume it knows where I want to download a file, so I always make it ask me. Edit > Preferences > Download > Ask Me Where to Save Every File

As a side comment, what are the refults of running the "df" command (which simply shows how the amount of available and free disk space per partition)?

Could it be a problem with quotas, so that there seems much space left but it is not available to your user account?

Browser out of space?

Thanks for the responses.
The system is installed on 30 gig partition, df -h shows 19% used.
The two items that received those same error messages were - Firefox extensions; and Realnetworks Rhapsody for Linux, which I am
willing to pay for. Rhapsody purports to play music directly from the browser, being that Linux is deficient when it comes to streaming content. Their website's FAQ does not address this issue.
This is part of an ongoing struggle to get music to play on my system. The sound works fine for everything except the CD players, in spite of having an audio cable from my soundcard to the CD drive, so I thought I'd try music from the web. I'm starting to get the impression that Linux doesn't do music.

I just bumped into this...

I ended up hacking the XPI. I posted it here: http://bria.nwood.org/node/203#attachments
