While surfing with Firefox 22.214.171.124 I got a video that I wanted to watch. It was downloaded and opened in Windows Media Player (ver. 10). Then I stopped playing the video and closed the application with the X in the upper right. My computer crashed and restarted (restart parameters which are personal rather than seeing the blue screen).
Since then, when I save an image of net surfing with Firefox, you can not save it ... The dialogue box asking where I want to save it opens, and the record button does not launch any process. No display panel as before downloading, which, if I open it, does any action: it remains empty. "
Thanks to those who have an idea how to fix it.
I had the same problem, all you will have to do:
1. Close Firefox
2. Go to the folder on drive C:\Documents and Settings
3. follow the path => Application Data => Mozilla => Firefox => Profiles => "Random_name.default" (example: 9d2nsf9d5.default)
4. DELETE "downloads.rdf"
5. Restart Firefox and this file is recreated itself ==> the backup works correctly again!
