Details, please… details.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu). Also advise us if you have any antivirus or "cleaning" software installed on your Mac. If you are using MacKeeper, you are hereby advised to uninstall it.

Open a Finder Window, go to the Sidebar and click on the Downloads section. The files may be there but wouldn't show up in Safari's Downloads window if you have Private Browsing turned on. If that is what happens it can look like nothing is happening. Especially if you have a fast connection.

Has this always been a problem, or just started out of the blue? Do you have any plug-ins installed? Are you not able to download ANYTHING at all from anywhere?

I'm not sure I understand your usage of the term "download" real well. It's almost like you're saying that nothing will appear in your Safari window. Is it that no web page will completely load, or even start to appear?
