Firefox Unable to Download

Following the Vista User Profile restore which I have recently performed, I realized that Firefox is unable to download files for me properly. Whenever I clicked on any download links from websites, the files could not be downloaded.

A quick fix for this would be:

1. Opening Firefox User Profile in the following location:
C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

2. Locate prefs.js inside the User Profile folder. Open it using your favourite editor like Notepad++

3. Look for browser.download.dir:
user_pref(“browser.download.dir”, “C:\\Users\\[Old Username]\\Desktop”);

4. You will now replace the [Old Username] with [Username] that you are using now for your Windows.

5. Finally, you may download as usual now!

Good luck!
