Whenever I start firfox, it tries to
download two .iso files into Desktop.
Until recently,
I wouldn't notice until it announced that it had run out of room.
At that point I would click on the messages to make them go away.
In the mean time, it had been chewing up bandwidth.

One file, I had tried to download by mistake.
Don't remmeber what I did with it on purpose.
The other I downloaded into a partition with more room.

I found this:
I did not like the side-effects.
For now, I've stopped the downloads by replacing
the target files with empty unreadable files.
Now I get an error message right away and it does not chew up my bandwidth.
I'd lke a better solution.
Any ideas?
