Question about Mozilla Firefox
When using Firefox, can't save jpeg, zip, etc files anywhere and I'm using Vista. Says that the files are downloading and where checked for viruses. When I got to the locations, its blank! I removed the antivirus, and its still the same. When I change over to Explorer, it runs/saves perfectly!.
For me Firefox always puts my files in
C:// > Users > Chris > Downloads whereas IExplorer always puts them into Chris > Documents.
so I guess yours would be the
C:// > Users >Nancy > Downloads for Mozilla
and Nancy > Documents
I know that sounds really patronising! But sometimes it is just a simple thing like that. Forgive me if that just sounds dumb! :)
Try uninstalling Firefox and downloading the latest version, if all else fails., but re-install your antivirus! (and try running Spybot from Spybot.org as a spyware companion for your antivirus program)
Hope this helps

Nancy, i have the same problem and it has nothing to do with where the files are saved or virus. It just plain isn't saving the files. Mine now doesn't even pretend to save. I click on "save as" and absolutely nothing happens. And just like you, IE works fine. There are known compatability issues with firefox and Vista. I suspect that we need to return to an older version of Firefox without the most recent update.
