Not having looked into the matter, could it be connected to ACLs? Something along the lines of FF being allowed to create files but not write to them?

I am using FF 27.0.1 on Solaris 11.1 and do not have such problem.

E.g. I am downloading a large ISO file to a local directory.
During the download, FF creates an empty file with the final filename
and a second "*.part" in the same local directory.
When it is done, the *.part file is moved to the final filename.

0                   IMAGE_Disk1.iso
261754987   IMAGE_Disk1.iso.part

It does not use /tmp or any other temp dir.
Are you saving to a local drive or to NFS? Perhaps it is different on NFS?
