View Full Version : Dialogue Box in gmail problem

26-08-2009, 04:26 PM

when I used to get a movie clip to open in an email I would click the download line and a dialogue box would pop up asking me either to OPEN or SAVE the clip to the hard drive. Normally I would just open and watch the clip but the other day I saved the clip to a folder. As you do.
Now when I receive an email and I hit the Download line it automatically just goes to the Save to folder option.
How can I get the Option Box back so I can just Open the clip to watch?
I have looked in the Tools/Options Main Page etc and tried Mozilla Firefox Help, but so far no luck.
Please any idea's welcome.
OS Vista, using Gmail and Firefox.

That might be corrupt profile then....

Go run>firefox -profile-manager

Then make a new profile, and see if it works from a new profile.

Hi blam6,
i got a reply from a google forum member who told me to go into Tools/Options then Applications tab, find the programme that needed resetting (turned out it was the wmv app.) Reset it and now I have that function back.
So thanks for your help/ suggestions.
