Unable to save or download files in firefox

source : http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_save_or_download_files

Choose a different download folder

Firefox will automatically download files to the Desktop unless you've selected a different download folder or you've set Firefox to ask where to save every file. Download problems may be related to the selected download location, for example, the download folder may contain a lot of images [3] or it may no longer be accessible [4]. (To fix problems related to the last-selected download folder, you can open about:config, right-click on the preference browser.download.lastDir and select "Reset".)

To choose a different download folder, click Tools -> Options in the Firefox menu and, under "Main / Downloads" (or "Downloads / Download Folder" in Firefox 1.5 and earlier) select the "Save files to" option (if not already selected) and click the "Browse" button.
[edit]
Reset download folder

Firefox may have lost track of which folder to use for the download directory. Symptoms would include "File - > Save Page As" and the "Save Image As" and "Save Link As" right-click context menu options not functioning or nothing downloading when you select the "Save" option in the Firefox "Opening" dialog box [5].

The solution may be as simple as choosing a different download folder, then going back and reselecting your preferred download folder in Firefox Tools -> Options under "Main / Downloads" (or "Downloads / Download Folder" in Firefox 1.5 and earlier). For example, if Always ask me where to save files is selected, choose Save files to, choose the "Desktop" folder, then go back and reselect Always ask me where to save files. [6]

If you still have problems you can restore the default Firefox download folder settings as follows:

Enter about:config in the address bar. A list of preferences will appear. Scroll through the list ( or type browser.download in the Filter box) and reset any of the following preferences that have a user set status (right-click on the preference and click "Reset"):

* browser.download.dir
* browser.download.downloadDir
* browser.download.folderList
* browser.download.lastDir
* browser.download.useDownloadDir

You can then change back to your preferred download folder settings, if you wish, in your Firefox Options.

If you'd rather just reset all Firefox preferences to the default values, you can delete (or rename) the prefs.js file in your Firefox profile folder or use the Safe Mode option, Reset all user preferences to Firefox defaults. See Resetting preferences for more information.

Fastest way to send multiple drafts from gmail

People claim that the fastest way to send multiple email drafts is to use Gmail IMAP with email client like Outlook or Evolution or Thunderbird. But I have found this is not true. Because Thunderbird and Evolution etc. email clients treats the drafts as emails still to be edited. So it is not just simple select all and hit send. Each email draft has to be opened and sent separately. That is a lot of clicks and mouse movements, wasting precious time and energy. I have a better solution which involves minimum keystrokes and mouse usage. Efficiency booster technique for sending emails.
If someone is feeling adventurous and want to try it from the Gmail interface itself, here's how to do it in the fastest possible manner. It involves using the mouse once. Select the first draft. Gmail would open a new email box and put the cursor inside the box to write.Press TAB once to go the Send button.Press ENTER to send. Now Gmail sends it and the box is gone but the highlight goes to the last li…

How to join audio tracks smoothly in Audacity

Audio tracks can be mixed easily in full fledged video editors like kdenlive or Adobe Premiere but for mixing or joining audio they would not provide the amount of control that audio editors like Audacity provide. The example I am going to show today would demonstrate the range of tools in Audacity that allows us to control the waveform and to mold it to our desire.

Today I am going to take a small track like a small 1 min. clip of storm sound and make a long continuous sounding storm audio clip from it.

STEP 1 : Open file
Open the clip in Audacity.

STEP 2 : Removing unwanted audio portion
There is always unwanted sections of the audio that we have to discard. Select the portion of background noise or unwanted audio.


Press DELETE key.

STEP 3 : Duplicating the track
Now we make a copy of the entire waveform and paste it at the end of the track.

Select the SELECT tool (the one which looks like I). Then select the whole waveform and prss Ctrl+c. Now click approximately at the end of the…
