View Full Version : [SOLVED] download went not into configured directory

December 12th, 2011, 12:54 PM
Hi There,
just got an email ( i am using gmail ) with an attachment named
HTML _ XHTML _ WML _ XML Validator Orthosport.webarchive

sended by a friend of mine asking if I got any ideas what is it about.

I know webarchive is where you can store websites at an apple.

So I downloaded to my ubuntu 11.04

Had a look at my download directory, nothing there.
downloaded again, nothing at my download directory.
Searched the computer, got the result it is os ?!?
Got ubuntu running beside Windows7 ( very rare used )
Found it there and it had installation files and .dll files and ...
It seems to be a Windows thing.
But how it could avoid to go into my download folder ?

It s me again :-) I googled a little bit and found the addon: noscript for Firefox. I just Installed this addon and maybe that is the a solution to avoid downloads going to different as configured directory. Probably the download was redirected by javascript. But is this possible, if I am just downloading and NOT opening the attachment ? ( I am with gmail ) regards Robire
