When I click a download link pointing to an EXE file, how do I run (ie. Open) it directly?

I know this is possible because I have another computer that does allow it, without additional plugins. The only difference is that the other computer started out with a 2yo version of FF and this computer was re-installed a year ago so it started out with a newer FF. Both have been constantly updated to the newest version. With the 2yo version I have always been able to run EXE files throughout the lifetime.

Hi: I have a MacbookPro, OSX 10.5.8, and I use Firefox 3.5.9. I cannot upload photos to Facebook. I get a broken up "load" window, with not even the "upload" button to click, plus I can't select the photos I want to use.

I can do it perfectly, however, using Safari. Can you help? Thanks!

How do I import a self-signed CA certificate into Firefox "Authorities"? I know where in Firefox I need to import and I believe it should be within the "Authorities" tab but I get an error "this is not a valid CA and will not be imported". I generated my CA cert with openssl. I would like corporate users to import it so that they don't get the "unknown certificate" messages for all the certs I sign for each web/FTP server in our company. Can someone please let me know if the "Authorities" store is where I should import my "custom" Certificate Authority? Thanks

I know how to clear my cache so that it doesn't load up with old email addresses, however I would like to know what to shut off so that I have to fill out forms each time. It can remember some delicate information at times and I would like that to stop, not just keep happening as soon as I fill out a new form. Thanks!

The past week, every time I click on anything - an e-mail in gmail, something on a website I want to go to, the arrow to scroll on a page, the Mac colorwheel comes on and it takes forever. I finally got so frustrated I switched back to my old Safari. But this is a new problem, and I didn't do anything to the computer to cause it. My internet connection is fine (cable) as Safari works great. So what's going on? (I have version 3.5.9)

My downloads stop downloading at (different downloads different percentages) usually 30-70%, and Firefox calls it finished even though it isn't, if i try to open the file that stopped midway, it is usually corrupt or (if mp3) the whole song isn't there just part of it. what's causing Firefox to stop right in the middle and call it done?

http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Smart+keywords I want to know how to remove the smart keywords that this article tells you only how to create.

I have the smart keyword 'ford' set to search the Ford website. I never use it, and when I want to simply Google 'ford escort' and type 'ford escort' into my location bar, it searches ford.com for 'escort' instead, because of that smart keyword. Long story short: I want to remove that smart keyword and all my troubles will be solved.

http://johnbokma.com/firefox/keymarks-explained.html I looked at this site and I do not have the 'quick searches' folder in my bookmarks menu.

When I click on Firefox the first time it says "Foxfire is installing your updates and will start in a few moments…. (with a green bar)" then it says "Software Update Failed (in blue) with an exclamation mark inside a yellow triangle) The update could not be installed. Please make sure there are no other copies of Firefox running on your computer, and then restart Firefox to try again." When I click the ok, Firefox opens up. If I open another Firefox window with the previous one still running, it doesn't give me any of these messages, it just opens normally.

I sent an email and demanded the slanderous information associated with my name and picture be removed and it was for 1 day. Then it was added again. I need to ask for help in how to stop this and to possibly file harrassment or criminal charges, or whichever may apply in English
