I cannot get anything to download...the upper-left corner window to double-click after clicking on the RUN or SAVE window does not appear.

Posted

This occurred after I stupidly removed some programs I thought unneeded to free up space.

Chosen solution

is the preference to show the downloads window when a download starts enabled in firefox > options > general?

you could also try to reset firefox (this will keep your bookmarks & passwords).

You are fantastic!!!I Did the "reset Firefox", and now I can download, the download window appears with something in it to double-click, and everything! Thank you...I have spent hours, days and months, many "help" sites, and a lot of frustration trying to get this to work; have spent over 6 hours just tonight trying sites that didn't work, and most of whom wanted to charge my grocery $ amount to get me to Premium Support techs. Thank you!
