Default Firefox 3.5 problem - Wont download files - 08-10-2009, 10:06 PM


Firefox 3.5 has started giving me problems with saving files, basically it wont, if I select a link it asks me if I want to save/open and when save is chosen nothing happens, the file doesn't appear in the download window and a .part file is left hanging in the download directory.

Not sure if the weird behavior is coincident with the 10.5.8 upgrade, I've tried re-installing, clearing the local history but the problem persists.

Anyone have any bright ideas?? I'm not sure how to delete the saved preferences otherwise I'd try that.

Download a fresh version from the Mozilla website and reinstall. Something might have gotten corrupted.
