Can't download software from

I disabled Adblock Filterset.G, FireFTP, Free Download Mgr. and still can't download anything from Had to use IE7 to download PortableApps Suite Basic and the other PortableApps as well. Tried both Ff2.0 and Ff 2.0 Portable. Tried Ff Safe Mode and was able to download Apps from

Thought I'd share this problem.

I'm not having download problems at other sites using Ff 2.0. Haven't had this problem in the past either, before Ff 2.0. The only new extensions I've added since Ff 2.0 is FreFTP.
When I try and download, the downloader starts and then it stops saying:

9:21:14 AM 11/28/2006 Starting download...
9:21:17 AM 11/28/2006 Redirecting...
9:21:17 AM 11/28/2006 Redirection succeeded. Opening new URL

Try a base install of FFP

Try a base install of FFP and see if it works from your current location. If no, then something is up at your location or with the PC. If yes, then it's your profile (an extension or otherwise) and you're kinda on your own in determining which one is messing things up. Trial and error (disable em all, enable one at a time, etc) is the best bet in that case.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

It appears there is some

It appears there is some type of conflict with the "Free Download Manager" extension.
I've uninstalled FlashGot extension and disabled 'Free Download Mgr' and I can download with all other extensions enabled from your site. Interesting. If I find out anything else I'll post.
