    I've been having problems with downloading
    programmes in general
    When I hit a download link,
    the page refreshes, but no download window appears, and nothing happens. i did have a look this morning & there was a suggestion about something i think was called speeddownloader which i looked for but couldn't see it.
    I am new to MAC's.
    this problem happens on both safari & Firefox so you can imagine my frustration!
    My system is 1 t.b. 21.5 inch screen 4gb memory Mac OS X Version 10.6.4
    hope that this helps.
    thanks in advance with help of this problem.

    What are you trying to download? Did you check the download folder to see if there is anything there?

    You should also try google chrome to see if you get the same result.
