This facility no longer works. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: CTRL+J to open the Download Manager (assumes you've downloaded a file). Right-click on the file just downloaded should show a content menu where one of the choices was "Open containing folder". Actual Results: Since Firefox 1.5 b2 and also RC1, this facility is broken or has been removed! Expected Results: Should work as in Firefox 1.0.7

How do I enable Firefox in safe mode under Windows? Don't know it had one.
There is a shortcut in the start menu to start Firefox in safemode, if not, check this out: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode
In safe-mode the context menu now appears as it use to in 1.0.7 normal mode.
OK. I'd like to know how running in safe-mode invalidates the bug that appears in normal mode on 1.0.7? How do I get the same behaviour as before in 1.5 ?
It's invalid because safe mode loads Firefox without any of your extensions, proving that one of your extensions is causing this. Problems with extensions are addressed with the individual owners of those extensions. See also: http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/faq#troubleshooting
Very well. I uninstalled Adblock, Chatzilla, and Bork. Restarted. Leaving only the Firefox standard set. Same problem. So I uninstalled SkyPilot theme. Restarted. Problem has now gone. Thank you. I've CC'ed the theme author on this bug.
Fixed in Sky Pilot Classic and Toy Factory themes as of this update. Update available here: http://www.projectit.com/freestuff.html
