How can I prevent the open/save file confirmation window popup ? Mine is currently set for "always do this action" but I still get the popup.
Whenever I "export" a QIF file from my bank I get a File Action confirmation window popup. I have the correct application selected and I have it selected to "open" and "always do this action" but the popup always pops.
I have checked the applications tab and the correct application is selected.
How can I prevent the confirmation popup window please ?
The server may be sending the file with another MIME type than was use to save that file action or the file may be send as Content-Disposition.
That is always hard to tell.
You can try to delete the mimeTypes.rdf file in the Firefox Profile Folder to reset all file actions.
Cheers for the reply.
I have deleted the rdf file but no difference. I still get the opening file box popup.
From the resetting download actions link. Both lines in the about:config are missing.
I have also tried switching the download option for the qif file to use a csr file but that also opens the confirmation box.
I pulled this from the rdf file
<RDF:Description RDF:about="urn:mimetype:handler:text/x-qif" NC:alwaysAsk="false" NC:saveToDisk="false" NC:useSystemDefault="false" NC:handleInternal="false"> <NC:externalApplication RDF:resource="urn:mimetype:externalApplication:text/x-qif"/> <NC:possibleApplication RDF:resource="urn:handler:local:C:\Program Files\Microsoft Money\System\msmoney.exe"/> </RDF:Description> <RDF:Description RDF:about="urn:scheme:webcal" NC:value="webcal"> <NC:handlerProp RDF:resource="urn:scheme:handler:webcal"/> </RDF:Description> <RDF:Description RDF:about="urn:mimetype:externalApplication:text/x-qif" NC:path="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Money\System\msmoney.exe" NC:prettyName="msmoney.exe" />
Not sure if that helps.
Thanks again for the reply
