Can't save files using Firefox and Vista

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!.

Hi Nancy,

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
Season's Greetings

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.

Asus lifeframe missing pictures


Hi emoly
try doing a search for a file type, in windows 7 type in the search box "type:jpeg" without the quotes. jpeg is a common type of picture, if you know that your camera saves as a different file type then use that. Hope this helps.

All my pics are jpeg. Trying to download them to


You could try another web browser, for example mozilla firefox, or google chrome... there's also a solution to download Ubuntu and burn to disc, reboot from the disc and upload using this other O.S. which is based on GNU/Linux file system and is immune to viruses and able to read/access windows files on the same computer you booted from. :)

Won't read disk, even though been using successfully for some time.


If you refer to a single disk then it may well have been corrupted or damaged. If it now does not read any disk, it is likely that the read head is dirty from dust or materials off the disks that have adhered to it. There are cleaning disks for the Zip drive. Check out your zip disk supplier for one of these if it is a generalised problem.

There is also a utility to recover files from the zip disk
FloppyZip Disk Rescue is an easy-to-use tool to rescue corrupt file fromFloppy disk and ZIP disk or other peripheral devices. It fast scansdisk sectors, rescues the damaged files and copies the correct data tohard disk as possible as it can. The program is especially effectivefor corrupted digital multimedia files, audio, video, image files,MPEG, AVI, RM, MP3, JPEG etc, and for damaged document and text files..

The Olympus people told me to to to


Copy & paste the link they gave you (everything within the 'www' to the '.zip') and paste it in your address bar at the very top of your browser (not your search engine field). This is a direct link and will prompt you to open or save the file. Choose 'Save' and then save it to your desktop. You'll have to extract the .zip file once you've downloaded it.

And I assume they gave you another link for the Vista/XP2000 update? Do the same thing as I mentioned above.

Setting the format of the picture i scan


Ok I am not sure why ya scanner won't save in JPEG .. however converting the files to JPEG is relitively "Simple". After saving the Scanned picture.. Open it up in say MS Paint, Painshop etc, then simply choose "Save As.." from the File Menu, and save it as a NEW image file this time with a JPEG extension. IE: origional... picture.png or picture.bmp ... save as ...picture.jpg .. ya should be good to go. :)
