Software :: Safari And Firefox Won't Start Download Automatically
Feb 19, 2009
my safari and firefox wouldnt start download some links automatically. for examples some megaupload links and some website like this one [URL]. when u click on 'UNSUPPORTED TETHERED REDSN0W - REDSN0W LITE' firefox or safari should start the download automatically, put mine wouldnt. i have to right click and choose 'save file as' to download the file. i have a friend, she's using the same spec macbook as me and she also uses the same wifi as me, when i gave her the megaupload link which i can't download and also the website [URL], she didnt have any problem downloading them.
I recently deleted the app speed download and didn't use the uninstaller so I'm worried my browsers may be looking for that and it's not there. I'm not getting any popups or anything when I try to download something, safari just goes to a black/grey screen and nothing happens. Please help!!
I have a Mac Powerbook G4 and i recently had to reset everything to reset the username and password so i can change things because it still had the old username and password from the person i bought it from. When i did that it deleted safari, so i used firefox. Now when i go to firefox to search for safari to download it again, firefox freezes up and won't let me download safari. What should i do to get internet access again?
I am using os 10.7.3 and a couple of weeks ago I found I can no longer download pdf files. Instead nothing happens or it try so open in a document viewer, for example: [URL].What do I do? I have not made any changes except update os 10.7 and adobe reader. Other computers using snowlepoard down load just fine!
I have a mass amount of files to download listed on a Web page. When I click the link, the file downloads, but the link on my downloads page never changes colors to note that the link has been visited.
When downloading small files online they will download through Speed Download. Before I installed Speed Download it would just download through the regular downloading client. How do I change it back to using the regular one as standard? I use firefox btw
When I open the program, I get this: [URL] My favorites are gone, the buttons are faded, and I can no longer reference my history. The passwords are still stored, but the links don't come up when I start typing them and also, I have to physically type in a website to get there, nothing loads automatically. I've tried restarting in safe mode - get the same routine.
I use mozilla firefox and when I click on a pdf or word file and click open instead of save file the iMac automatically saves to the desktop. How can I change this? When I click on open I don't want it to save the file.
I've tried searching for this and haven't found another thread so please forgive me if I missed it. I really need to get Firefox working.I'm running a Dual 1.42GHz PowerPC G4 with 1.75Gb of RAM I had Firefox 3.0.3 running great with OSX 10.5.4.I install the new 10.5.5 update and now Firefox won't start up. I double click on the Icon in the Icon bar and it bounces a couple of times then.....nothing. I try double clicking the icon in the Applications folder
My system drive recently failed and so I installed on a another drive in my mac pro. I've taken the other (failed) drive out. My current system drive which works great so far when my computer is booted up and running, is not found automatically during start up. For example, if I restart the computer it will either show me a blank screen forever, sometimes a missing folder, sometimes nothing. But if I hold option during start up, sure enough the system drive will show up and I can go on my way with no problems.
Don't know whats going on but since about a month it takes about 30+ seconds between the moment i start Firefox and the moment it display my homepage (the browser window appear but stay blank all the time). Once it's started though it's all fine. Safari in comparison starts in a couple of seconds. I have tried vaious firewall settings but it doesn't seems to help. The only plug-in i have installed is Flip4Mac. My computer is the 2.0GHz aluminium MacBook.
My Mac attempts to start up and automatically shuts down on it's own. It continues to start and stop for several minutes and finally boots up. Once it's up it works OK. I've had it in to the Mac store and they tell me it's probably the power supply, but after leaving it on all weekend it seemed to work OK so they didn't do anything. After I brought it home it is still acting in the same way. It's only on trying to start up that it cycles through the start - stop action. Once I turn it off it's the same problem on trying to start again. Does this sound like a power supply problem?
So i downloaded macoffice on the new macbook air using the internet and the code on the box as per the instructions of the guys at apple. The problem is everytime I start up the macbook, both word, excel and my mail automatically opens up. And when i close excel, he spreadsheet opens up again. How do I stop this?
I must have clicked on something somewhere to change things and can't figure out what I did.

Before screwing things up, when I clicked on a file to download, a pop-up box would appear asking me if I wanted to open the file and unzip it or save it.Now, when I click on a file to download, it automatically starts downloading and does not unzip it.Does anyone know what I screwed up?
I was out today and when i came back this thing called codec-m had installed on my mac as an app. Also, my homepage on safari changed from [URL] to this weird search engine that ive never heard of. I currently am doing a full system scan on avast.
