Hi im sure this is a quick fix.

im on my buddies macbook and i cant download anything!

nothing comes up in his download list, I just click the links and it shows the url up top then refreshes back to the main download page.

I dont believe he has any 3rd party software for his downloads

when i click the activity window it comes up as cancelled

?? please help

Is he an admin on the Macbook? If not, then the admin may have disabled downloads. Also check to make sure that there is a set download location, and that he has the rights to write to the folder Safari is trying to download to.

Well ive asked him now and he says he doesn't know either whats going on with it; but yes he is the admin and he has been able to download stuff in the past. the downloads folder is set on desktop but i have also tried to change locations to see if it would help but no luck...

its just odd to me though how it recognizes im clicking the link to download and in the activity it marks it as cancelled?

and i know the link is legit and its not that because i have tried it on all different sites; Im just trying to get firefox on here and i cant download it!!!

please help
