    whenever i try to rightclick save the window opens but firefox does not register the download. i can left click links like torrents and they will open, but right-click is not working.

    ive tried reinstalling firefox but it hasnt worked.
    sometimes when i left click items i can choose to save them and that works, but at the same time there is a chance of my firefox stalling out for about 5 mins and my wireless connection disconnecting.

    any help would be great, thanks a ton in advance

    Are you saying that you don't get the save as option, or that it just doesn't work?

    i get the save as option. it even directs me to where i want to save it. when i enter the file name and click save nothing happens. its like the firefox downloader doesnt work.

    It could be sending it to your temp folder in local settings.

    Also, try not renaming the file. Once it's on your desktop, then rename it.

    checked my temp folder, then proceeded to scan my whole computer for the file but no luck. renaming didnt work. The firefox download manager doesnt evern register the doanload, meaning, if i open the doanload manager, there is nothing in it. and its not set to clear out files after download.

    Did you check the firefox temp folder, or the windows temp folder?
    It will go to the windows temp folder if it goes anywhere.
