Thread: Firefox bug, downloads window, opensuse 12.1, kde

    Default Firefox bug, downloads window, opensuse 12.1, kde

    I use a windows directory fat32 setup. So, I can transfer back and forth between mswin and linux. I'v had no problems with Firefox this function until recently.

    If you download a file then right-click, you select 'open containing folder'. File manager shows "J - 'file manager super user mode'". The window is blank. I have to open it manually. Can someone help?

    There's something that you're leaving out. Firefox shouldn't open the file manager as su. If that is the case, it may be opening the Downloads in the /root directory. Check the location bar and see if this is the case.

    Nope, it's: '/windows/J'
