I cannot download any article or image - the prompting box is there, but no article or image is downloaded.
If I right click and select save image, or select "save page as . ." as, or if I go to the toolbar and select "save page as . . ." the prompting box disappears when I click on, and nothing gets saved. I'm quite frustrated because I save a lot of things to my files.
I've been using Opera in the meantime, and it works fine in this regard.
