When I want to try an executable program I have a problem. Under Internet explorer (I believe via insrtuctions with the download) you have the option to RUN or Save. I have no option to RUN the program and must save it to file. Are my settings wrong or can this be fixed? I do NOT always want to SAVE the program. HELP!

FF was behaving strangely - I couldn't see images on websites. I checked all my updates and it was all good, FF was the most recent, Flashplayer was the most recent, so I restarted FF - no luck. So I restarted my Mac - I still couldn't get images when I went to websites so I decided to uninstall and reinstall FF. I have app trap and it asked if I wanted to delete all associated files when I deleted FF from my applications, I clicked yes. Then when I reinstalled FF 17 and opened it there was absolutely zero history. My trash hasn't been emptied, is there anyway I can find the files with my bookmarks, history, passwords, etc?

I'm on OS 10.7.5 and was reinstalling FF 17.0.1

I use Firefox at work because I simply like it better. Before we upgraded our computers to windows 7 enterprise with service pack 1 I could use Swiftview for viewing our payment processes, it uses a .LIS extension, but now I have to save everything before I can open it up and view it. Is there a way to fix this?

Before I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8, I synced my firefox. I performed a clean install of Windows 8, meaning I wiped my C: drive. After the install of Windows 8, I was unable to retrieve my personal data from the Mozilla server. The browser is telling me to sync my stuff with another device but I saw, when syncing for the first time, the browser said something along the lines of "Backing up your data to Mozilla servers." How do I retrieve my data from those servers?

I did not have to pay for firefox because firefox is free. But i DID purchase the full version of downloadhelper way long before my computer crashed. Download helper has a record of my IP address along with my name, and email, and i remember seeing a number key for my purchase when i used to look in the options window. So will they make me pay for a legitimate version of downloadhelper if they have it on record that i already purchased it? Thats what i want to know, because i should not have to buy it again.

I've had this problem for quite a while. The downloads don't actually download. Nothing comes up in my downloads folder (and I've checked where they are supposed to be stored, I am checking the right place). In my downloads popup through the Firefox client, if I right click any download, both "Open" and "Open containing folder" are greyed out. I have tried using both Firefox 18 and the current Nightly client, and have reinstalled multiple times.
