Is this only when trying to download from `Simple Machines` site? Your screen shot indicates this.

no, but i only took the screenshot on this page, its with any download

If you go to `Tools/Downloads` and click on it you should open the `Download Manager` also open the `Helpfile` and click on `Using the Download Manager` there is a section on changing the options. You may have altered something there.

There are only two possibles that I can suggest:

1. Try a restat of Firefox and see if that cures it

2. If it has only just started do a restore to when it was last good.

You may find this tutorial on Firefox of help click here click on the `step-by-step tutorial`.

You can configure Firefox to download to a folder of your choice (I have a dedicated folder for such downloads as it also acts as a backup) from Tools>Options>Downloads.

Create the folder first (if you are happy with such a suggestion) and then use the Browse button from the Downloads tab to Enable it as the download target.
