View Full Version : firefox download box disappearing

16-06-2011, 03:46 PM
whenever i download a file through the browser, say an update from filehippo, the download box flashes very quickly then disappears.

i backed up my bookmarks and profile, then got rid of the installation via revo.

reinstalled FF 5b7, tried a download, and the box giving me the option to save file or cancel appears.

as soon as i reinstalled my profile from backup, this box disappears.

i am stumpt as to what has caused this???

So try creating a new profile, your old one could have become corrupted.

cheers terry

created the new profile, copied over the old stuff i needed and its fixed the download box thing.

only a small annoyance but good to have it fixed.


guess i can delete the corrupt profile now??(have a backup of it anyway)

and uncheck the box that says "close it when all downloads are finished"

it wasnt where the download were going, it was the fact the box to save or cancel kept disappearing all the time
