There are lots of Linux users who don't care how the kernel works, but
only want to use it. That is a tribute to how good Linux is.

When I push the "download" button, a window appears, but it doesn't download.

when I pull up "Preferences" for firefox and try to tell it where to download, it ignores me. If I right click an image to download, nothing happens.

But "down-it-all" extension works okay.

This started after the latest version of firefox was added a couple days ago. (version 3.5.6).

Maybe a conflict with "downthemall" which disables origin download.
Before taking stronger actions, I'd remove "downthemall", after restart try if origin download works and reinstall the extension.
