    Firefox is starting to annoy me

    BIG TIME

    ok - I can deal with the fact that it absolutely refuses to work whenever I first connect online, I have to close the browser because it refuses to find the page and only works after I try again

    Now this

    I've now had 2 incomplete downloads which have left .exe files on my desktop, both files are 0 bytes, but can I delete them ? nope, tried everthing, safe mode, etc, 'this file is being used by another person or program'

    Grrrrrrr

    Clear your browser cache too, I've had it go a bit iffy now and then, also clear the downloaded files list in Firefox download manager.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Cheers guys, but tried all that - no joy

    Then I found a programe called 'Moveonbot' which deletes the files on reboot
