  precise: downloading / saving files always fails

Status in firefox package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  On Precise 12.04.1 since the latest update to
  43.0-build1-0ubuntu0.12.04.1 downloading or saving of files doesn't
  work. Showing PDFs with the internal viewer does work but as soon as i
  click on 'save' the download manger says failed. The same happens if i
  use 'Save link as'. This happens with any file types (tested with pdf,
  mp3, mp4, iso). Some types such as Ogg/Video which are supported by
  Firefox directly can be watched/shown but using 'Save link as' doesn't
  work either.

  It seems the builtin download manager is broken on Precise since the
  update.  Using the plugin Downthemall works as expected.
