Support » Fixing WordPress » Plugin/theme downloads break when using Firefox

  • This has happened to me before, with a way earlier version of Firefox anda also of WordPress.

    I have been using Chrome, and in Chrome it works fine. But today I came back to Firefox and the same problem still manifests. I’m on a completely different computer than the first time, by the way.

    What happens is that instead of doing all the steps of a download until the point where you can click “activate”, it just says (e.g.)

    Downloading install package from…

    And then stops, doesn’t show anything else.
    The plugin can be activated, as it does go on the plugins list.

    But this is annoying and I would love to overcome it. Usually I just click “Activate” on that same window.

    Anyone can help?

    Thanks very much.

  • I can only suggest to download the plugin manually to your computer, then upload to /wp-content/plugins/ path

    Thanks, but if that’s the solution I’d rather simply use Google Chrome, which works fine.

    Can you install plugins straight from WordPress, with Firefox?

    Yes, I do it all the time. Firefox doesn’t have an inherent problem with that. Maybe check the version and any preferences/setting in FF?
