Firefox Download Window Stops Working


I’ve had this problem for the last week where if you try to download a file in firefox the download status window doesn’t display although the file actually downloads.

you can fix this by going to %appdata%MozillaFirefoxProfiles and deleting the downloads.rdf file.

    This worked for me. Thanks much. No idea what caused the problem in the first place, though.

    My problem is that the download happens but I can’t access the file from the download window. I used to, but suddenly I can’t and even right clicking on it grays out that same option.
