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?


    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
