I just downloaded the new version of Firefox earlier today (I'm using Ubuntu). I'm trying to download an add-on I need for work but when I tried, I got this error message: This file could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later or contact the server administrator. Why would I be getting this error?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It’s possible that the site hosing the link to the file is having issues or the link may be broken. It may also be the add-on is not compatible. If you have you used this add-on on the same type of system before you may want to contact the developer of the add-on.

    How did you install the add-on? By downloading .xpi file on your pc or directly from Firefox like Add-ons for Firefox website? Probably this is a compatibility issue. You can check here for manually install and just for a try: https://www.accessfirefox.org/Install_Addon_Manually.php

    What add-on are you having the issue with? The new Firefox has been buggy from what I have seen.

    If this is an add-on for work, are you trying this on a work supplied computer and network? It may be network security stopping you from the download as the security software may say it's risky.
