Actual Results: the file downloads, the file size seems to be correct but when i try to open the file it wont work...i can go directly and get the same file in ie and it works fine...that sux cuz i hate ie Expected Results: the percentage of the download shoud count from 1% to 100% and the file shoud open correctly after downloaded it did the same thing with netscape 7, ive tried about 3 versions of mozilla...1.02, 1.2 and 1.3b please help me out i hate having to use ie i LOVE the tabbed browsing
The page you link to in the "URL" field has a lot of links... could you point to one specific one this fails with? What is the downloaded file named?
EVERY file that is not a zip or exe file will not work
Could you be a little more specific than "will not work"? And answer my second question?
will not work means the file will not open. when i try to run the file in its program it says it is an unknown file, load aborted about the second question...NO FILE WILL WORK...take your pick i tried to get the detonators users guide from nvidia.com which is a pdf file the ptb files on powertabs.net have to have a special prog to open them also .gp3 files from www.mysongbook.com wont work either... all of these file types are associated with their appropriate progs on my pc btw
> about the second question...NO FILE WILL WORK That wasn't my question. My question was two-fold: 1) What is the name of the file being downloaded _on_the_website_? 2) What is the name of the file after it has been saved? Make sure to tell Windows to show file extensions when looking up the answer to part 2.
a file i got from mysongbook.com is whitesnake - still of the night.gp3, it saved as whitesnake - still of the night.gp3 i have it where windows does show my file extentions (im an old DOS guy) i hafta i pretty much know my way around a pc thats why this is bugging me so much would i maybe need to associate the file type gp3 in mozilla itself with its specified player? because see i have zips associated with it and like i said earlier zips and exe's are the only files that will run/open when i get them with mozilla
Ok.. since I'm still having trouble reproducing this, could you please give me specific step-by-step directions as to what you're doing so I can make sure I do the same? Something like: 1) Go to foo.com 2) Click "look here" 3) Shift-click on "look there" 4) Select the filename "myfile.gps" 5) Click "OK". (but obviously with the steps _you_ are using and with the files you're getting).
