Have found over time that when I try to save something I find on the internet to my computer, that it doesn't actually save the document/file/picture, whatever, but rather seems to make a link to it so when I try to open it it has to reconnect to the internet to actually open the file. In other words, it doesn't seem to actually save the file to my computer Current version of Firefox, has actually behaved the same with whatever version ever since I switched to FF a couple yrs ago. Sometimes I can open everything in the file but frequently embedded thumbnails/pictures etc won't open. I also have tried to attach downloaded files to email and they often can't be opened by the recipient. And have tried to burn them to a CD which doesn't work, either. Still has to go thru connecting to the internet to open the file, and again embedded thumbnails/pics etc won't open at all. Have tried selecting all, copying, pasting to i.e. Word, but that doesn't work either, the format often is all askew. I'm trying to somehow give a large group of files that I've saved over a period of time to a friend of mine to share some info on a variety of subjects - lots of it is data but there also frequently are embedded pictures etc. Sure would appreciate some help on how to actually download and save files off the internet as opposed to whatever you'd call what seems to be doing it by just saving a link. They're always called "Firefox File" - ?? Thanks so much!
