Default [Q] Galaxy S3 download problems

I have had a problem with my phone. I try downloading rom files or even images from google but it will say "starting download" but nothing appers in my notification bar or in my gallery. I tried to take out the sd card and going into my internet settings to download to my device but nothing has changed please help its really starting to bother me.

Have you tried cleaning the app data of download manager?
Or did you disable system apps?

i used to remove or disable every app which i considered useless for how i use my phone
so i eventually disabled "Downloads" because i thought i only download things but don't want the app to show up in my app drawer as "Downlaod Manager" takes care of downloading stuff

does downloading apps via play store work for you?

I have had the same problem once myself
But I just can't figure out at the moment how I solved it

You could try things that usually fix some issues like
- Wiping cache and dalvik cache
- Trying a different browser

Do you have root? Or are you just a 'regular' user?
Are you using apps like android firewall? Or have you restricted some apps' permissions?
