Are you sure you have chosen to save? Not just open? Did you know that quite often when you choose Open or Run, your downloads window shows the real name of that app or file, but the temp file has a completely other name. For instance, let's say you download application ThisIsMyApp.exe, selecting Open. Firefox downloads shows ThisIsMyApp.exe being downloaded, but in fact the file that is saved in TEMP is something like 34kjh2345kjhgq35mS6D8G9F6A.TMP.

Anyway, I checked Firefox now on two Seven PC's and one XP, all work as they should: if I have selected to save the file, I can open folder location from context menu also from older downloads. If I have chosen Open, the option is grayed out.

If the issue arises when you install FF, then just don't use it for now.I know that's just a workaround, but it'll accomplish what you want

Firefox has a built in mini virus scanner / general scanner I think? Perhaps it is the scanner removing the files.

Disable Automatic Virus Scan in Firefox 3 [How To] | Software Guides | Windows Tools, Help & Guides

Of course if disabling that option turns out to allow files to download normally, then I'd be concerned about why Firefox is treating your downloaded content as infected.

Thanks you Lost Colonist! You solve it for Firefox but how about on IE 8 are there config similar to it?

I have no idea, sorry. It's not a browser I use, but maybe someone else here knows? Well, at least one of the browsers is working normally again
