I just found out Mozilla has an add-on or extension called FasterFox

WOW does it make a difference. You can get it or read about it here (http://fasterfox.mozdev.org/)

I click on the link and then download but nothing happens. Screen just refreshes and that is it.

But first take a look at the comments on addon.mozilla.org: https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?application=firefox&id=1269 The first comment cites a website owner who says prefetching all the links shown on the page you are viewing is wasteful. He says this product could increase traffic on the internet by a factor of 10x, and his site refuses entry to anyone using it.

It's either your virus protection or FireFox itself. When you load the page to the download does a band message (usually bright yellow or green) appear at the page header? Mine did the same thing and you have to allow your machine to access by clicking on the header to get to the selection to allow!

I suposse if Doc finds it to be a problem, all he has to do is say something and I'll change it back.

Good find TC. It could be a godsend to folks on dialup. I see no problem with it at this point. If that changes I'll be sure to let everyone know.
