    Hi, im having problems with windows vista where whenever I try to update my system (security, java, adobe) or I right click on the sound icon in the toolbar of my screen (and open) section, I get the message saying that the specified service does not exist as an installed service.

  • All of a sudden I can't open attachments to emails. I get a message that the 'security settings' do not allow. Where are these settings and who put?

    I use TWC (Time Warner Cable) as my server e-mail and Firefox as my browser. I went to my emails and has attempted to open an attachment and got an error message stating "security settings prevent the download file. Well, I contacted TWC, Norton and my PC settings. It seems that Firefox is the problem! If I use another browser ie: Google and go to my email account, I have no problem. I remember recently that Firefox did a download of updates and this may be the cause of the problem.

    Thank you for your private message with the error text: "your current security settings do not allow this file to download."

    Firefox partially integrates with Internet Explorer security settings for download purposes. You can realize your Internet Explorer settings to the 'Internet' zone by following the steps described in this answer to Microsoft forums:

    Note: Traditionally, the Internet Options dialogue box was available in the Control Panel, as well as in IE. Not sure about Windows 8.1.

    What is fix?

  • I get message that relief 3.3 is not compatible with firefox 31.0

    I have a new computer and installed the latest version of Thunderbird from Mozilla (firefox 31.0). I like to use the calendar and tried to install 3.3 relief, but it gives the message that it is incompatible with firefox 31.0.
    How can I get the calendar running?

    Lightning is a Thunderbird Add-on, and you can't install it for Firefox.
