A few minor computer problems

  1. Firefox keeps asking me to save a file when i click on a link (Especially at Tesco direct)

    Example: n. 1999782$4294965316.axpx

    Why is it doing this?



    Also

    My keyboard stops working at random time. The various lock lights all flash once and then the keyboard stops working. Any ideas? Might be a hardware issue i will try it in a different USB port and get back on it in a few weeks.

    IF the link is for a direct download, Firefox will ask if you want to Save it. So be advised of this.

    Firefox does NOT ask to Save if it's just a hyperlink.

    Again, we can only work with the information we're given and you haven't given us any! Please give system specs, details about keyboard, etc.

    (Ok just ignore the keyboard issue for a while then until i can confirm its not just a dodgy USB port. )

    I am clicking on normal hyperlinks that's why its so strange its asking me to down load something, ill try to get a few more examples for you
