I just installed Firefox version 9.0.1 hoping it would solve this problem, but no such luck. My bank allows me to download and print my bank statements as PDF files from their website. I checked the code and the button I click on implements a javascript:doDownload(); function. A small panel opens that allows me to enter the page range. I then click OK and nothing happens. An earlier version of Firefox (3.0) had no problem with this and I was able to download and save my bank statements to my hardrive as PDF files.

When I run Firefox in Safe mode I am able to download and print my bank statements as usual. Great. But, which of my addons, etc is causing the problem?

I found that the problem was with the addon PDF Download 3.0.0.2

I disabled it and was able to download and print my bank statements. I'm just not sure if I need to change the settings or completely un-install it.
