by jeffersonvet / July 3, 2013 5:16 AM PDT

When I download a program..Mozilla shows me that it downloaded correctly but I can't activate it! Nothing happens and when I do a complete search of my system for the file it shows up nowhere. I'm using Windows Vista home premium and Mozilla...what the hell is going on???

Look in lower left corner of Firefox window

Firefox has recently changed the way they display downloads. If you look in the lower left corner of the Firefox window, you should see the file where you can click on it. If you don't see it there, open your Downloads folder because that's likely where it'll be.
Good luck.

For me

For me it's in the upper right corner. Either way, just go to Tools --> Downloads or use the key combo Ctrl+J then you can right click on any specific download and choose "Open containing folder" or even just double click on it and Windows Explorer will take the default action for that file type.
