    Sometimes the downloading crashes the Mozilla Firefox browser so in this situation i would suggest you to install the either the internet explorer browser and or you can also try to change the destination of the download folder from the default which is i the my document folder. Hope that this will surely help you to get the problem resolved.

    3. In the Downloads section and select "Save files in and click the Browse ... button.
    4. In the Folder Selection window, select a new location.
    5. click OK to close the Options window Click Close to close the Preferences window Close the Preferences window
