Preferred Solution: firefox download option problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hopefully there's an answer out there. I'm a long time Firefox user currently using Version 14.0.1 on a PC with W7 64bit.
Since taking the upgrade to version 14, I no longer have the option to pin the shortcut to the task bar of start menu but have to be content with the shortcut on the desktop. When right clicking on the shortcut, I no longer see the traditional option of where to pin the shortcut. I've gone back as far as Version 10.0 but the option is no longer there either.

Any ideas on what's happened or how to solve this mystery?

I am running a Gateway MD2614U laptop OS Win7 home 32bit. The laptop and Win7 are working just fine. Firefox v25.0 work's just fine except that Firefox can't download anything. Firefox was downloading just fine until a week ago. I have tried many diffirent file types. Firefox reports download completed without any errors but the file downloaded can't be found anywere on the hard drive (I did an in depth search of every last file on the hard drive). When I download the same file in Internet Explorer the file downloads just fine to the dir were it was supposed to go and will execute just fine. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. I have tried turning off add-ons, extensions and plugins. No good still the same problem. I tried Firefox in a different Windows profile, no go. I tried Firefox in a different Firefox profile, still no go. I tried running Firefox in safe mode with network running to see if ZoneAlarm was the problem, still no go. I tried a restore to an earlier date. That didn't cure it ether. I still have the problem and I am out of ideas as what to do next. I could use some help please.

I just joined - and I'm really not good at tech - a newbie - but read all the threads here -- and have tried anything and everything mentioned concerning a slow/jammed Firefox Download Manager:

-- I have uninstalled, then reinstalled Firefox (and all Mozilla files in C Drive) 3 TIMES -
-- tried all Options -- Privacy - Downloads -- clearing Downloads -- opening Downloads and trying to delete -- always freezes and not responds - I've cleared everything else -Cache, Cookies, etc.-- cannot get the download manager -- cannot find anything --cannot Clear it - it's driving me crazy
-- tried JayT's suggestion on one thread to go to Mozilla -Firefox - Profiles (which I could never find --- did repeated searches -- even tried to search for the files and or names of any of the documents that were in my download manager -- but could not find in any search -- through Explore or anything -- so I deleted entire Mozilla folder and reinstalled everything)
-- I cannot use the Download Manager at all - totally freezes -- took off Manual - which must have caused the problem -- but will not clean up

thanks for any suggestions!

Hi Friends . I got the problem suddenly . My firefox was running good , but I didn't know what happened, whenever I tried to download an image using firefox (right click and save image as ) is shows this ... and obviously the download is a url , not an image.

How Can I fix it ? Thanks a lot in advance .

A:Firefox Image download problem

Hi Arc,

1) Try clearing the cache and see if that helps.

2) Otherwise, couple of workarounds you can try.

Instead of
RightClick "Save Image As..."
do
RightClick "View Image Info", then "Save As".

Though this involves 2 extra clicks.

Another one.

Load the picture. Then hold the SHIFT button, and Refresh/Reload the page. Then try "Save Image As ..."

If you registered forr the Windows 7 Upgrade option disk and your manufacturer is supposed to send you a voucher that you can redeem online to microsoft to get them to ship you a disk, can you download the disk as an option? because I have no cd drive.
thanks

A:Download Upgrade option disk?

As far as I know, manufacturers ship out an Upgrade Kit containing a clean copy of Win7 DVD and a drivers/apps CD you can pick what you want from. No bloatware. Very nice.

What you would need to do is borrow a computer or use one at school or the library, put in a 4gb+ USB flash stick, format it primary FAT or NTFS in Disk Management, copy the files from the DVD drive directly into the root of the flash drive exactly as they appear in the DVD explorer.

Now take the flash stick back to your computer, plug it in and reboot, at bootup look on the first screen for Boot Menu F-key to tap repeatedly, then select the flash stick in the Hard drives given. It should boot, unless there are BIOS settings (enable USB) or Updates (check your manufacturer's Support Downloads page for your model).

The installer is driver-complete, meaning you might not need anything off the driver/apps CD, but if you do you can browse it later and copy those to the flash stick, which can hold other files besides the installer.

The other way is to connect your computer to a network and copy the files from the CD drive of another computer to your desktop where you can run Setup to install over your XP/Vista or to another partition or drive. But you need a bootable installer for possible repairs, anyway, so go for it!

I'm wondering how many people are not aware of this. Now I'm sure not many use that option as they get annoyed with the popups asking if you want to accept cookies but I really liked that feature and it's what I used to effectively manage my cookies. I didn't get that many popups because once you block a cookie you also have the option to remember that choice so you don't get a popup for it again.

Apparently this was removed when version 44 was released in December 2015. I only discovered it when I checked my stored cookies and gee willickers, I saw a long list of cookies I never would have accepted. So of course I check my Privacy settings and I see there's no longer an option to "Ask me Every Time". It just disappeared.

I was thinking of going back to version 43 but of course there have been security issues that have been fixed since then so that would be risky.

I looked at the available add-ons and didn't see one that would ask me, only ones that will delete them after they are already accepted but I may have missed something. So I'm asking if anyone knows of an add-on or third party software that would ask if you want to accept the cookies and give you the option to say yes or no and to remember your choice so you don't keep getting the same popups over and over again for the same sites?

A:Firefox will not download

It could be a Profiles problem. The Firefox 1.5 upgrade should bring your 1.0.x Profiles folder up to the 1.5 format. Perhaps that process didn't work for you. I think it's best to create a new Profile anyway when a major upgrade is released. So, perhaps try deleting the existing Profiles folder and get off to a clean start with a new one. I feel this would stand a fairly good chance of remedying the problem.

If you choose to try this, don't forget to back up your 'Bookmarks.html' file before doing anything with the Profiles folder. Extensions etc can always be reinstalled but losing bookmarks can be tragic.

A:Cannot download in IE or Firefox

I have also been trying to troubleshoot a similar issue for a friend (for about a week or so now) and am stumped as to what could be causing it.

Anytime a download is initiated in Firefox (3.0.1), the download process completes but the file is automatically deleted (the tooltip in Firefox's download window says 'File Not Found' for one of the details listed). As for Internet Exploder (yes, I meant to call it that ) goes, the downloaded file is not in the designated folder/directory. And in both instances, the file is not locatable via the search string in the start menu.

The only file types that appear to be used ter downloading are .doc's and .pdf's.

AppName: firefox exe AppVer:1.8.20051.11116 Mod name: firefox
Modver 1.8.20051.11116 Offset:000ee3f2

Then it gives the option to view technical information about this error report, which has a lot of text then at the bottom it says the:

the following file will be included in this error report

C:\DOCUME~1\Master\LOCALS~1\Temp\aad9_appcompat.txt

Can you help?

A:I can't download in firefox using XP

If IE works ok and the computer seems ok otherwise then you could try a system restore or last known good configuration or just uninstall firefox and reinstall it.

I have had good luck with firfox running but other browsers such as AOL's have had to be reinstalled so maybe that is what you need to try. I might add i picked up a virus a while back and ever since even though computer is supposedly clean i still can not get netscape to load off the desktop icon. it starts to to load then says it is done. so you may have an issue with firefox similar to this.

RELEVANCY SCORE 40.4

Firefox was working properly...until I reformatted and reinstalled. Now, when I want to download something (legal, anything - even just images) it gives me the little popup saying "you have chosen to open ___" and "would you like to save this file?" but as soon as I click "save file" it goes away. Even if I click "open" it goes away. The file is not downloaded. I go under tools/downloads and nothing is in the download list.

Now if I click the button to display the page as Internet Explorer, then it works.

I've updated ff to the current version. turned off AV. no help. I dont have any download managers installed. There was a page with suggestions on the mozilla website and I followed all those, but it still doesn't work.

What could be wrong?

RELEVANCY SCORE 40.4

Normally my Firefox will ask me if I want to open or save a zip. file when I clicked download.Now that options seems to be missing (the pop up window).I have recently clicked 'perform same action to this kind of files from now on' from the pop up option, and I no longer see the pop up now. I wish to have that prompt again, so I can choose to save or open a zip file. I have browse the help section in firefox, but couldn't find the help to have it enabled again.Pls help.... Thanks!

A:Firefox Download

Try this:Click on Tools then Options. Click on Downloads on the window that pops up. You'll see it near the top, 2nd choice from the right.Under Download Folder, see if there is a little green dot in the little radio button by Ask me where to save every file. If there isn't, click on the little radio button.Under Download Manager, see if there is a check in the little box by Show download manager when a download begins. Click on the little box if there isn't.If that doesn't work, then try this:Go to Downloads as you did before. This time, click on View and Edit Actions near the bottom left of that window. Another little window will open up, and you will see a list of file types on the left and the programs assigned to open them on the right. Depending on the file type, when you click on it, a Remove button will become active. In all cases, a Change button will become active. If you use the Remove button, Firefox will again ask you what to do with that file type the next time it comes up in your browsing. If you use the Change button, you can change the program Firefox will use to open it. You won't get the window asking you what to do with the file.Hope this helps,Orange Blossom
