Firefox 31.00 DOWNLOADS folder location has moved.

Posted

Firefox 31.00 DOWNLOADS folder location has moved. I can no longer find the files I download using my Firefox browser. (Firefox 31.00 - updated as of 2014_0812.) This is my process: Firefox 31.00 Menu Bar: Click -> TOOLS Click -> DOWNLOADS This opens up: chrome://mozapps/content/downloads/downloads.xul The files I download using Firefox 31.00 are not at this (chrome) location. What’s up with that? Is there a way to revert to my former setting where clicking on Firefox 31.00 menu button labeled DOWNLOADS opened up my Windows 8.1 DOWNLOADS folder. I'm not sure what I did wrong. Dick Hamilton

A question for you ...

Are you able to view the Download prompt window when you begin to download a file?

The reason being, is that I am having a download issue within Firefox in which I've been unable to download most any file that I select. The exception would be .ZIP files. Those I can download (and in the process, view the Download prompt window).

I've noticed that I cannot download most other files ... mainly .EXE files and others (in which the Download prompt window fails to even appear).

I initally thought that possibly the downloaded files were being redirected elsewhere within my C drive, but that appears not to be the case.

Let me know if you've experienced a similar issue.

Anyway, I do hope that your issue is resolved in due time.

Take care,

august242

Hard to believe that nobody could figure out an answer in the last ten days.

Does anybody in the Mozilla Firefox community have suggestions for a website that could help me with Firefox questions?

I seem to be in the wrong place here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/

Thank you.
