Thread: 3rd party software

  1. #1

    Default 3rd party software

    Is the right place to place questions about third party software like Firefox, Thunderbird, etc. ?

    Vielen Dank.

    you can ask about software available in OSS,Non-Oss,Update,Non-OSS
    update and lastly packman. You might probably get answers for other
    software present like chrome etc too

    You cannot get information about banned software like

    Why do you say that Firefox or Thunderbird is third party?

    Sure, those packages are included in the standard repositories, but we
    also often help with stuff not in the repos at all. We just need to know
    where the software was obtained from and how it was installed.

    Firefox is asking to download cs(65).ashx. I told it to automatically save it to stop the prompts.

    I have a folder filling up with these.

    .ashx is an ASP.net file. It should be handled on the server end. What website is giving you this problem?

    I can open About Us as a web page
    That web server is properly handling the code behind the .ashx file. Andy has run into a server that isn't interpreting a file as ASP, or possibly isn't handling ASP at all. It's a server problem, not a Firefox problem.

    Yes . I may also be a problem that in the "http header" content type is
    not being set properly

    Do you have FF set to open a set of pages / restore the previous session? That would explain the reoccurring prompt to download the file. FF hits the same link whenever it starts, if what I suggest is true.
