Between dowloading issues and Java not working correctly, when the next version coming out? I'm a breath away from switching to IE

I cannot use the Java pull down menus on USAA.com, and downloads cancel when I close Firefox and cannot be resumed. What happened to the old downloader? I have to use IE in order to use USAA.com (primary banking). I tried updating Java, I tried a reinstall on firefox, clearing my cache, everything. No dice. If a new version doesn't come out soon I'm switching to IE... I've been loyal for 10 years.

To get the old downloader back follow the directions below.

  1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
  2. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.
  3. Filter browser.download.useToolkitIT.
  4. Double click and make sure it says true.
  5. You now have the classic downloader back! Yay!

Any issues or confused?
