User Help for Mozilla Firefox
8 posts • Page 1 of 1
I might have turned on the Acrobat feature which resulted in downloaded .asp files being opened by Acrobat. For instance http://www.projectiondesign.com/admin/c ... ileID=1176
Is that a way to reset Firefox back to its original factory settings. I have tried to uninstall and install Firefox but it did not help.
Kindly assist and thanks for your patience.

If you want to reset everything then create a new profile:
Create a New Profile
Migrate/Copy Files to a New Profile
Passwords: signons.txt and key3.db
Saved Forms: formhistory.dat
Site permissions: hostperm.1
Thanks for your advice. I have since followed your instructions and deleted the old default and created a new profile.
However, each file I download from this http://www.projectiondesign.com/Default.asp?CatID=1258 still always appears as a GetImg.asp file when downloaded to my desktop and is always opened by Acrobat, have I missed any steps ?
I like Firefox for the speed and hope to solve this downloading problem. Do you think a proper and complete UNinstall would help ?
Thanks for your quick advice.
What happens if you change the download setting?
Tools > Options > Downloads: "Ask me where to save every file" (check)
still the same with your latest instructions.
the problem is - my firefox does not recognise that this is a "Compressed (Zip) File" type to be downloaded.
I get a zip file (Flash) with the first link and application/vnd.ms-excel files with the second.
Could it be your firewall or an anti-virus program that is changing some headers?
Are you using a proxy?
GetImg.asp?FileID=1176 should give a respons: sending post data to the server and waiting for an answer (MIME type content header) to let Fx know what to do with that file.
i figured out what was wrong...it was a matter of left clicking or right clicking the mouse. By left clicking it will download as ZIP while right clicking will not work.
i am not able to offer any reason why this is so...but i must thank you for your assistance all along.
Its probably a redirect - GetImg.asp, the target of the link, probably redirects to the zip file. By left-clicking Firefox loads GetImg.asp which then triggers the download of the zip file. By right-clicking Firefox saves GetImg.asp.
