Firefox will not download webpages
 
Firefox will not download any .html or .hmt pages from the internet. What happens is I tell it to "save as" and then the box comes up that asks where I would like to download the file too. I press 'OK' and firefox dies, this happens EVERY time I have tried it. Is this normal or is there a fix for this. It also seems to have a tendency to die whenever I use the 'OK' button, however in other contexts it is sporadic.
I am using firefox 1.0.4 (whatever is newest). And if it is any help I am running it on Suse 9.3.

Try 1.0.6. It's the newest version.

I had problems with 1.0.4 being buggy too. 1.0.6 seems to work well.

I upgraded and had it pointed put to me that the apt-get upgrade probably broke a lib or 2.
I rolled back the GTK2 lib update and now it works like a champ. Well at least I learned something from the experience.:D

I thought it was a corrupt profile?

I did as well, however fixing the corrupt files only worked for 1 download and then back to the same. Fixing the lib has worked for approx. 80 downloads. So maybe it was a combonaton, however that may be the lib fix has put many other things back to right.

Glad it all worked out for you.
