hi ya
recovering from a reformat and reinstall.
using windows xp pro and firefox last time i used it it worked perfectly.
I'm trying to d load from rapidshare and it used to be just click on the rar file i wanted and the dloads window popped up and presto...downloading!

now i keep having to go through the popup save file or open with...the little box for always do this is greyed out and non selectable.
I've just spent awhile going through the 69 pages of support doc's looking for an answer...tried alota of em to no avail.
i installed mime helper which allowed me to atleast put the rar extension in the extensions box and selected the option of saving these files to disk but it still pops up and ask me what to do with them....fornication!

anyone else got any suggestions...? (besides pouring a couple gallons of gas on the computor and throwing matches at it?)
