    Can't save as...!

    If I right click on a picture or a link to a file in mozilla and try to "save as", it gives me the dialog box and lets me click save as normal, but the file doesn't save onto my machine. I've tried renaming them and such.
    I've just recently noticed this, and no new firewall or anything...
    anyone have an idea?

    I just cleared mozilla's cache. No change. Is there a separate windows temp file?

    Try the latest version of Mozilla if you don't have it, if you do I'd say file a bug report (assuming you haven't fixed the problem already.)

    I've seen Zone Alarm cause the exact same problem.Might be a firewall or security setting.Diable your firewall and try it.

    18. I cannot download large files.

    When you download a file in Mozilla, the file is first saved to your temporary directory and then moved to the destination directory. If you have restricted space for your temporary directory, consider either increase the space or use a download manager for large downloads.
    19. File downloading has been very slow lately, why?

    When you have a large list of download history, Mozilla becomes slow in starting and finishing file downloads. To clean the list, open the Tools menu and choose Download Manager. Select the entries you want to delete (hold down the Shift key for continuous selection, and the Ctrl key for non-continuous selection). Then click Remove from List.

    Ran both cleaners, and turned off zonealarm. Still no dice. I'll try a couple things and submit a big report.

    Installed firefox and that can save as just fine.
    Thanks folks!
