Everytime the "do you want to save the file or open it" window pops up, after i clicked download on something. Firefox is really unresponsive, almost crashing if i click to fast. I have to wait 3 seconds after clicking just for it to react.

Extremely annoying when dowloading.

OS: Manjaro Linux
 
Do you have multiple drives in your build? For example, an SSD for an OS drive and an HDD for a storage drive? If so, is your download location on the storage drive?

This is the set up I have and occasionally, I have to wait a few seconds for my HDD to spin up.

Hi! Thanks for the fast response. I have a ssd and a hdd. Im pretty sure my download folder is located on my ssd, aswell as my firefox install.
 
Unfortunately, I'm not familiar enough with Linux to delve into possible OS issues. Do you run into the same kind of issue when running Chrome? If you don't have Chrome installed, I'd try it just for testing purposes.

Edit: Does Manjaro have a default browser? Does the same happen when you download using that?

Yeah, im not that familiar with linux yet. I started using it a month or two ago. I have already tried chrome, it works fine. I just prefer firefox. I will probably use chrome instead then.

Edit: The default browser for my version of Manjaro is firefox
 
Yeah, if it works fine in Chrome, then it's probably something specific to Firefox and Manjaro. I don't know if the developers tweaked Firefox to run on Manjaro or if you can do a clean install of Firefox. Anything in Manjaro user's forum (if there is one) about users with the same kind of issue?
