When I finished with my H&R Block 2018 tax return, I saved it with Firefox in my documents folder.

Now I cannot open the file. I am not computer savvy.

Hello stashale,

Other subject (I'll let FredMcD help you with your actual problem) :

In your system details you say that you don't know what plugins are;
when you go to the 3-bar menu => Add-ons, on the left side you will see : Extensions, Plugins, Themes and Dictionaries ("add-ons" is the collective name for these items) - when you click on them (in this case on "Plugins"), you will see what they are.

In anticipation of your answer to FredMcD :

When you press the Windows key + R on your keyboard, and enter in the dialog that appears : documents and click "OK", it will take you to your documents folder.

Do you see the file in question there ?

If so : click on it (it will highlight) and then at the top click on "Open".

When you do that : nothing happens ?

Thank you (I was thinking that maybe you didn't know how to open any file in your document folder ... )

Would you be so kind as to reply to FredMcD's post ?

I have been replying to you and the emails keep getting rejected. I just saw at the bottom of a page that i have to 'click here' to respond.

As I said in the beginning computers, cell phones, etc are not my thing.

Now, I know how to reply to Mc D.

Thank you for your patience.

Thanks to everyone who offered help.

I tried Adobe and it didn't work.

So, that's that. Maybe this year when I save it with Adobe, I'll

have better luck.

When saving the file, try to use a standard file type.
