I have been trying to download Simple Sticky Notes to my computer. I am using Windows 8. I have added download.com to allowed sites in the Security tab. When I click on the down arrow to retrieve the downloaded file, I see it there but it will not open. I have downloaded the file many times and it will not open.

I accidentally pressed <clear downloads> and lost all my download history.

There is apparently no way of getting back.

I was drowsy and my mouse click went wild by a few milimetres and hit the wrong button. They say life isn't fair but this really takes the biscuit. The <clear downloads> button should be placed somewhere where you are less likely to hit it by accident. And it should say "ARE YOU SURE?". And once its done, the same button should be changed to <RECOVER DELETED DOWNLOAD LIST> for as long as new downloads haven't commenced.

The instructions given in this forum for retrieving the lost download list are for Windows users. There appears to be no help for users of other operating systems: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1009679

Firefox hasn't even backed the file up.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance.

Firefox 38.0 on Linux can only download one file correctly. After one success, it hangs on succeeding one. What's wrong?

I recently upgraded to Firefox 38.0 running on Redhat Enterprise Linux 5.11. Except for the first time with no .mozilla directory in my home directory, Firefox stores the downloaded file in /tmp, but then it never moves it to its final location, and the Download monitor reports that the download is in progress.

With no .mozilla directory in my home directory, I can do one download correctly, but after that, it shows the same symptoms. Thus, this problem has nothing to do with my local setup for Firefox because it happens with the initial setting (albeit after one download).

Any suggestions?

BTW, I'm typing this questions on a Windows system -- all configuration information generated on this support web page is irrelevant.

Running Window 7. I don't know how this happened except that Firefox updated. My picture files are not under pictures they are in c/user/Nancy/temp . I don't want them in the temp files, I want to move them back. The only way I can access my pictures is by searching for jpeg files. I am not sure that I had Libraries before the update. Hope this makes sense.
