My mac has a problem. I use firefox as a browser and everytime i try to download something like skype it downloads it to my desktop. Then when finished i go to click on it and the icon does the opening motion (the zoom into the face) but does not actually open. I think it bounces on the bottom bar once. and then NOTHING HAPPENS. so they will download but they will not launch.

What have i done for this to happen. Someone recommended that i update my java so i downloaded that but i doubt it worked as i have this problem of not being able to open things which download. I am using a g4 laptop ibook think.

Do you think my computer is old and knackered and i just need a new one? Everything else works fine though.

Any suggestions would be very helpful as i know nothing about this.

Thank you thank you xxxxx

Does it do the same thing when you download with other browsers?

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
