File Download Settings In Mozilla Firefox


Downloading problem with some setting when i click download button in a site, previously it will straight away come out a dialog box and ask me where to save it. But recently, it will keep on loading for a long time depending the size of the file to be downloaded. Actually it started to download behind before asking me where to save. So after a moment then the box will come out ask me where i want to save.

When i entered, it is done. So, is there any setting or any else that i can change so that it will only download when i press the save button? Means like my previous setting which is also usually happen in others computer.

File Download Search In Folder

I use windows 7 ultimate. Firefox latest version. I download music preview files, alot and i want to find a way to better short my file during download. e.g. Axwell - take this ( dj remix )

That is a song name. I have a music folder with many subfolders ( their name are based from source of download or genre ) my problem now is a have multiple ''double'' / alot of same songs in different folders, which take too much hdd space.

When i click download, i have a pop up window, ask for ''save as'' it direct me to my music folder, now i can see if i already own the file if it's written exactly the same (ask to replace file). But when i am into a sub-folder i dont know if i already have it in music main folder or another music subfolder. ( Lets say, im into c:/music/electro , i want to know if i already have that song in c:/music/house or c:/music or all sub-folder in music without having to look every folder before download. )

Do you understand my request? Is their such feature in windows 7?

Unable To Download File Is Corrupt

I am having problems downloading any kind of update for my laptop. The updates i am talking about are for windows, norton, etc. I am not a crazy downloader. It will start the update and then a message will pop up saying the update was unable to be completed because files are corrupt. The techs at norton were finally able to get the updates to take but they  had to have publisher had to show up as unknown. In addition to that from time to time the webpages will obscure and all mixed up. Any clue on how to fix this?I hope this makes sense, my husband is the one that handles all the computer issues and he is deployed so i am doing my best.

Connect Camera As Mass Storage Class - Cannot Download File

I have a problem described in microsoft article id: 814390 whereas i cannot download an . Avi file since it is 1. 7gb. The recommended solution is: "you can connect the camera by using usb mass storage class (msc) instead of ptp. Then, transfer large files by using windows explorer. ""Well, that sounds simple enough, " i thought. I've been all around the computer trying to find some way to convince the computer that the camera is a mass storage class. I can't find ptp or msc in the computer anywhere. Even the help and support center (f1) has no record of these terms. I'm stumped. Any help on how to achieve this?

Ie Does Not Open But Firefox Does

About a month ago ie failed to connect but firefox did, downloaded ie 8 thinking this was the problem, still no luck, attempted the networks diagnostics for windows xp and it states something like this -windows can not connect to the internet due to a problem with the firewall and to check ports 80, 443 and 21-.

So i turned the firewall off from norton and the windows firewall is off, tried again and the same answer, went to the support at microsoft.com and it suggested to download net framework 3. 5 did that but when the program loaded and attempted to "re-connect with the server" it could not, it made 5 attempts and since it could not connect it did not finish the installation. By the way i still have net framework 2 but can not download the new.

It is very important for me to be able to connect as it appears that my itunes is using ie to connect and i can not update my iphone.

Flash Player Causes Internet Explorer And Firefox To Freeze

Every time i open chess titans my computer blue screens hard drives running through ide disappear. When flash drive plugged in adobe flash player causes both internet explorer and firefox to freeze. Windows 7 professional 64bit, p5w dh-deluxe motherboard q6600 2. 4 ghz processor 2 gb g. Skill 800mhz memory, geforce 8800 gts video card, 10, 000 rpm hard drive, ultra 1, 600watt power supply w/ 117 amps on 12v rail ect. All windows updates and newest drivers on everything.

I have multiple possibly unrelated problems. First, every time i open chess titans my computer blue screens (doesn't actually show the blue screen) just flips off and back on. I am running the minimum amount of ram for windows 7 x64 but i will play hard core games fine. I uninstalled and reinstalled the program. Second, i have 2 hard drives running through ide (non raid) they work fine until i plug in my flash drive then they disappear i can't even find them under disk management.

My flash drive is formatted in ntfs and is 64gb so possibly windows in recognizing it as a hdd. Finally, adobe flash player causes both internet explorer and firefox (whichever one has the page open) to freeze when loading certain web pages eg. Pandora.com  some pages work fine like adobe (it says flash player was successfully installed) but most pages do not. Any ideas?

Live File System Will Not Save File

Live file system will not save file!Windows 7 and udf will copy several files and then you get to the last file which is 700 meg and the space free bar under the dvd rw drive shows 1. 2 gig left. The copy starts and runs till about 350 meg left then it slows down all the way to 17 kbs and also till 10 k was left on the dvd. By this time about 5 hrs have gone by and the copy window has showed 1 hr left for 3 hrs. The cancel button won't work task manager when used will crash the system. You can force a shut down but then you have to reactivate norton with your purchase code. A search of the internet for me was no help at all.

All Program Settings

I have a question about how to organize my "all programs" settings. When i click start then all programs, all my folders are at the bottom and misc. Files are on the top. I would like to put the folders in alphabetical order and have the misc. Files last. It was easy to do on all the other window's programs but i can't seem to find a way with windows 7.

Services Settings

I have been trying to maximize the performance of my rig since i only have 4 gigs of ram and my ancient 1 year old mobo can hardly cut it with windows 7 (sarcasm intended). So, i have been fiddling with services but i occasionally mess things up and i end up painstakingly trying to reset those service back to their defaults, one at a time. How hard could it be for the services panel to have a ‘default" or "reset" button? So when people like myself (i’m not very smart) mess up a setting, we can simply click "reset" and the ole’, comfy, default services fix my screwup. Are there other ways to do this other than the aforementioned "by hand" method. Software? Utilities?

Regionalization Settings

It appears that when i change the regionalization settings to prc china, all menus become chinese regardless of how i configure it. In xp, i was able to change this and the menus remained in english. My problem is that with visual basic 6 programs, the text is not unicode. In order to read chinese in my program, i need to maintain english menus but support chinese as big 5, etc and not unicode. This effects microsoft sapi function for foreign languages. Does anyone know how to configure this?

I recently purchased a new laptop - sony vaio - with windows 7. My issue is that my 'mouse' settings will not open up. After i had installed a usb "mircosoft wireless notebook optical mouse 3000" which seems could have caused this, but have uninstalled it and same thing is happening being able to open the mouse settings. Also restarted multiple times.could it also be something messed in the registry. I am able to open everything else with no problem. It also shows that it is thinking (circle thing) when i attempt to open it. No error message or anything pops up.

Keyboard Character Settings

I just today picked up a new acer laptop with lots of bells and whistles, including a pre-loaded copy of windows 7 home premium. I asked for professional but i digress. My question is this:

The character settings for my keyboard appear to be stuck on french candian and none of the keys are working as i need them to. (At least that seems to be the problem as far as what i could find in windows help states. ) For example, to capitalize a word i have to turn on the caps lock button just for the first letter. If i want to use the @ symbol, as you would commonly need to for things like typing in your email address - i have to first go into to the character map, select the right symbol and copy it, then paste it into whatever i am working on. Shift 2 brings up this - " (a quote symbol) - instead of the @ symbol.

I have gone into the language bar, selected the us standard option - and have pressed apply, then ok, then checked to see if it works. The file path is showing that it has been changed to us standard, but it is still typing everything in a canadian french keyboard layout! I have repeated this function several times, and tried every way i could think of to find an answer in the windows help menu.

I am way behind in technology so if anyone can help, can you please do so in really simple clear terms? (Even that question mark had to be copied and pasted. In fact i've had to open up the wordpad to write this, then copy and paste the whole thing here in my plea for help!) Again, if you can help please use very simple steps that even an inept user like me can figure out.

Separate Settings For Two Monitors

I have a laptop computer with its built-in lcd display. I have added an external monitor, also an lcd unit, through the vga port on the laptop. In windows 7, with the screen resolution -> multiple displays set to "duplicate these displays" ((i.e. , The same thing shows on both the internal and external displays), is it possible to have each monitor set up separately in terms of the display model, resolution, etc. ? 

If not, only one monitor can be optimized at a time, either the laptop lcd or the external monitor. I realize that i can adjust these settings for each monitor as long as the multiple displays setting is "extend these displays. " When i have this field set to "duplicate these displays, " the display value is locked on "1/2. Multiple monitors, " with no way to adjust the two displays individually.

Excessive Security Settings

After installing windows 7 home premium, it has apparently decided that i am no longer the administrator of my machine. I cannot access links in office, nor can i make changes to certain documents in word - they are apparently all read-only. I continually get the default message (something to the effect of) "this operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator", whether it's attempting to utilize links in message in outlook, or whether trying to change or save documents in word.

Also, i no longer have access to certain folders on my hard drive. There have been other issues, but i have slowly been able to resolve some of them. I have already tried multiple attempts with the standard microsoft help desk, but they have been no help, and have since refused to answer any of my subsequent questions, and it has now been more than two months since the last time they responded to me.

Cannot Change Backup Settings

I set up windows backup to my drive h: passport, but passport wasn't big enough. I want to backup to "networkmybookworld1public". Now when i try to change the backup settings, i only see h: passport or the dvd drive as options, with the message "windows can't find the disk or network location where backup is being saved". I can't browse to or add networkmybookworld1public. It won't let me change or delete any backup settings, or add or point to "networkmybookworld1public.

It also won't let me 'setup backup' i guess since it was already set up once. How do i delete the original setup so that i can re-setup backup? How do i select or point to networkmybookworld1public? When i go to computer, i see network with mybookworld1 under it.

Settings.ini Is Being Used By Another Process

My gadgets aren't working, neither is firefox. I have a problem with my sidebar, as-well, as a lot of others have on this forum and a lot of others. Every time i start up my computer this message is shown. I tried a clean boot and that took care of the error message, but when i tried running the sidebar it popped up. Besides that my firefox, keeps claiming that another firefox is already running which, from my point of view, doesn't make any sense.

This seems to have started after i tried connecting windows media center to my xbox 360 and there was an error. In searching the internet, i have found that quite a few people have posted this kind of problem, several after a snafu in setting up their xbox 360 for media center, but there seem to be no answers to be found.

Proxy Settings In Ie8

I have both firefox and ie8 and my proxy settings work on firefox but in ie8 i am not able to connect. I go to tools->options->connections->lan settings->here automatically detect settings is already selected and i also select use proxy server and i give the address and port and in advanced i select for all.

Then when i type in any address like gmail.com and press enter a pop up window comes with the name 'windows security' and asks for a username and password. Now even in firefox it ask for a password and username and i give mine and i get internet access but when i give the same password in ie8 it doesn't connect.

Now my main problem is that things like mcafee and infinite other things also are not connecting. So things like updates and other things don't happen.

So i would either like a solution for ie8 or any other way in which windows doesn't depend on ie8 connection settings and uses firefox settings to connect.

Changing Bios Settings

I have a custom built computer that has been running the windows 7 release candidate. I've been trying to install the full version but have not successfully been able to boot from the cd/dvd drive. There are two options to prompt the screen before windows starts either press delete for bios settings or f12 for boot menu. First off, i'm not sure which one i'm supposed to so i tried both. When i went to the boot menu the screen was frozen and i could not select the boot first device. What am i doing wrong?

Picture Import Settings

I want to change the import settings for my canon camera when importing photos using windows 7. I had already managed to do this once but want to adjust the settings again. However, when i connect my camera to my pc, it automatically starts importing photos based on current settings with no option to change.

The above is from another thread regarding the same problem i have. The dialog box with "import settings" flashes, then goes away before you can make changes. The person above was given a link to a boilerplate answer that doesn't address the problem.

Touchpad Settings Problem

I recently bought my hp pavilion dm3-1030us and installed win7 professional. When i started, i could access my touch pad settings via the control panel (under devices and sound) by clicking on "mouse". In order to have a real mouse as well as a touch pad, i plugged in a usb mouse, which installed itself (as would be expected). However, the problem is that now the only mouse settings i can find are the ones for the installed usb mouse. I really want to change the settings on my touch pad so that it's less jumpy and doesn't "tap-click" while i'm typing.
