Firefox 1.5.0.4 isn't downloading properly in Mepis 6.0
 
Hi all,

I am running Firefox 1.5.04 on Linux (Mepis 6). Despite my specific settings, Firefox is NOT downloading my downloads to the correct location. Instead, Firefox downloads everything to the tmp folder and opens an application to access the downloaded item (e.g., If I download a word document, it saves the document to the tmp folder while opening Open Office to display it).

I've never had this problem before....in Linux or Windows. It only happened once I installed Mepis 6.

Does anyone know how to fix this annoying problem?

Thanks!

Have you tried deleting .mozilla directory? (actually, you can pin point some specific files for deleting only settings, but, wth :) )

anupamsr:

What is ".mozilla directory" ?

If I delete it, could it have any unintended consequences?

Thanks

It is in your home directory. It store all the preferences/history/Cache/passwords/extensions (in short, your profile)
(the Windows equivalent will be C:/Documents and Settings/<user>/Local Settings/Mozilla Firefox, or something like that)
