Can not open download folder in Finder after update to OS X Lion

Hi there. I have recently upgraded to OS X Lion. The upgrade was smooth. But since the upgrade I am unable to open Download folder in Finder. If I select Download in Finder's sidebar nothing happens. Finder won't display content of Download folder. If I go and select Home folder in sidebar, Finder displays content of my Home folder including Download. If I double click Download folder to access it nothing happens again. Cant access it. But if expand download folder using triangle next to it, Finder will expand me Download folder and show it's content...
I tried to verify and repair my permissions with Disk Utility, but did not solve my issuel. It is very frustrating scenario, since Download folder is something I access every day multiple times.
Any ides what can I do?

I found a solution that worked for me. Seems like my firewall did not accept the afp connection permissions anymore after installing lion... Since everything worked well turning off the firewall.
So if you don't want to keep your firewall disactivated here is what worked for me:
- Leave your firewall activated.
- Turn OFF afp file sharing in the sistem prefs
- Restart your Machine
- Turn ON afp file sharing
- You should now get a message if you want to accept afp connections...
- click YES
Seems like this resets somehow the afp permissions in the firewall settings
Everything fine on my network now.

  • Can't open 'Downloads' folder. Finder crash.

    Can't open my 'Downloads' folder. Every attempt to open it crashes Finder and restores a new finder window. However I have no problems with other folders. I appreciate any input or suggestions. Using a Late 2009 White Unibody Macbook with OS X Lion 10.7.1.
    Thanks.

    Solved.
    Went into terminal and deleted the corrupted .DS_Store file.

  • After latest os X update February 2012, the Finder can not open a folder anymore and asks to restore the windows or not

    After installing the latest update - automatic updates and after rebooting without any error, the finder application can not open any folder or device anymore.
    Seems the appication crashes after which the following pop-up appears :
    Anybody any idea ?

    I would do the following:
    Reinstalling Lion Without Erasing the Drive
    Boot to the Recovery HD: Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
    Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions: Upon startup select Disk Utility from the main menu. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions as follows.
    When the recovery menu appears select Disk Utility. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the main menu.
    Reinstall Lion: Select Reinstall Lion and click on the Continue button.
    Note: You can also re-download the Lion installer by opening the App Store application. Hold down the OPTION key and click on the Purchases icon in the toolbar. You should now see an active Install button to the right of your Lion purchase entry. There are situations in which this will not work. For example, if you are already booted into the Lion you originally purchased with your Apple ID or if an instance of the Lion installer is located anywhere on your computer.

  • Can't open download folder in my mac

    help!!!! I can't open download folder anymore. Anyone can help me out?

    My case is little different than what you said above. When I click the Download Fold that is in the dock, it just pops up a blank window. Then even I click the Finder in dock, it pops up blank window as well. However I still can open Finder with "Conmand + N". I clicked Download Folder the one in the home folder, it does not respond.
    Just let you know I am using Lion os x, the folders in the home folder can not be modified and deleted.
    I tried using spotlight to open it, but it still doesn't work.

  • Can not open any folder

    can not open any folder on desktop

    You have read pririlege for the folder?
    Finder's Go menu -> Go to Folder...  "~/Library/Preferences", then move to rash the file, "com.apple.finder.plist" then relogin could solve the problem.

  • I can't open Aperture 1.5.6 after updating to 10.6.8/Snow Leopard

    I can't open Aperture 1.5.6 after updating to my mac10.6.8/Snow Leopard. What should I do. I don't want to lose all my pictures.

    This may sound like I am repeating Allan Eckerts advice, but what he wrote has spelling errors that seems confusing or contradictory.
    Lpcap
    As you did not backup your photos now at least copy the Aperture Library to an external device like a Hard drive or USB.
    I don't know  if Aperture 2 is still available for purchase, as Apple tends to discard older software so quickly.
    Aperture 3 is now the latest,
    Repost in the Aperture forum, for details on how you can best upgrade your Mac 10.6.8 OS to an Aperture version that will be able to rebuild your old library.

  • Disappearing dock -- Can't open Downloads folder

    Hi All --
    I have done a bit of browsing and I think my problem is related to a large jpeg file or something similar in the downloads folder that makes it impossible to open the "downloads" folder. I have tried to access the folder (to remove any large file) through many means without any luck. When I plug in my ext. drive and try to access my old back up downloads folder the finder crashes as well. It seems like every time I try to search or access the term "downloads" it crashes.
    I have tried the kill dock thing for the dock -- it doesn't work. I think the problems are related. Can anyone help?
    Thanks!!!

    Double-click on your boot volume HD icon, select list view, click on the triangle next to Users, then on the one next to your user account, and then double-click on the Downloads folder.

  • Problem Application - can't open Applications folder in finder

    Dear All,
    I went to upgrade an application (Transmission) today, but during the upgrade, my macbook requested to be restarted. I did this, and now whenever that application is encountered in finder, it crashes finder. This means I cannot open the folder in finder, or from my dock. If I search for it using spotlight, it also crashes.
    I have tried deleting it through terminal, but when I navigate to the applications folder, and type "ls -l", no contents are listed, though I can still load other applications through spotlight.
    Does anyone have any idea what I might be able to do to delete this problem application? I was hoping to just do a system restore using my time-machine backups, but I don't have an install CD, and apparently you can't do that without one of those.
    Thank you in advance for any advice!

    Welcome to Apple's discussion groups.
    I'd launch the Console utility and look under ~/Library/Logs and /Library/Logs for a CrashReporter item. If you see a Finder crash log in either of those locations, post the contents here and someone may be able to help you decipher what's wrong.
    I'd also use Disk Utility to do a "verify disk" operation on your boot drive to see if that reveals anything.

    If all else fails it's probably possible to use commands in the Terminal application to delete the problematic application, but first I'd try the things I suggest above.

However, my husbands account [email protected] opens. I can open it on my home computer but not at our office and it is our office email. Can you help? I've cleared the cache through the tools/options/etc. It will not open on IE either.

  • Can't open a folder in finder with a single click

    Hi there! So I am a new user of Mac and I tried to change some of its settings on system preferences last night. When I am looking for something on the finder, I noticed that I can't click to open the folder. No matter how many times I clicked on it. So I clicked on the right side of my mouse and found out that the option "Open" is gone only "Open in New Tab" is there. It kind of bothered me because I don't want to keep adding new tabs. Please help!

    If I understand your problem correctly the solution is to select the Finder menu and then Preferences. In the Dialog box a little more than 1/2 down there's a checkmark option Open folders in tabs instead of windows. Make sure that option is NOT check marked.

  • Can not open downloaded files

    when I download a file that is not a pdf file and try to open it firefox states that the file is not pdf file and tells me that it can not process it. you treat every downloaded file as if it were a pdf file regardless of what type it is.

    The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information.
    Note: ''This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.''
    To Reset Firefox do the following:
    #Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
    #Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
    #Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
    #Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.
    Further information can be found in the [[Reset Firefox – easily fix most problems]] article.
    Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!
