When you try to open the file, what message do you see? Check the size, compare it to the online source. Was there any problem during the download?

When I clicked on this link I got nothing. I solved the problem by using another browser for downloads.

If the link you are talking about is the one I posted, that is your current startup page.

As to the downloads, if this is what you want to do, that is your choice. Good luck.

I fail to see how the information that you have given is a help for my problem. I download a program using firefox I then go to the download folder (Ctrl+J) and click on the download, nothing. I try open the folder with no luck. I have tried the multitude of suggestions without success. I am a longtime firefox user and will continue to use it, except for downloads. It seems that there is no solution to my problem.

Were you doing this; Open the Download Manager. Right click an entry.

As a longtime Firefox user, I have a working knowledge of how downloading works. I have tried all the normal ways to open a downloaded file. I was wondering if it would be possible to move my downloads to another file and try to open from there?
