When I download a program, It appears as downloaded in the download box, but when I click it, It says it's a Binary File & won't open it, When I try to search for the program, nothing appears, How do I get Firefox to allow me to run other programs?

Posted
  • This problem fails for EVERY Program I try to download.
  • In the download, it shows it has been downloaded. It gives the size, the website where I got it from.
  • When I right click, it just gives me options to delete it off the list
  • When I first try to download it, it will cancel automatically, I have to go back and click refresh on the download.

By the way, after you download the file, make sure you close Firefox (or IE8) before you run the installer.

OK, going back to your own post where you wrote: the installer cannot proceed with the current Internet Connection settings , that gives me the impression that you already have the file on your PC and tried to run it, but might have had Firefox still open. Is that correct?

Yes, exactly. Close Firefox before you attempt to run the Java installer.
