Hello,

That may be a Windows error message. Firefox can use Windows security policy settings when downloading files, resetting system internet security settings may help. For details of a couple of methods see http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_save_or_download_files#Reset_system_Internet_security_settings_-_Windows

Good Luck!
