When I try to download files, it starts a download, but the speed stays at zero and it never starts. This happens occasionally in Chrome, constantly in Firefox. On Windows 7. Doesn't appear to be a hard drive issue on my end, as I've tried several different directories on different drives.
I can tell it's going to fail when after I right click and "save as", it just hangs for like 3-4 seconds before it brings up the window asking me where I want the file saved and what to name. Prior to the site update that was instantaneous. When downloads work on Chrome, that delay does not happen.
