This could be many things.
* Have your provider test your web service
* Check your modem
* Have you tried using a download manager.
There are add-on DownManagers. There are also external managers.

  • How can I prevent the settings on iMessage from changing each time I sync the devices with iTunes on our iMac?

    Each time I sync an apple device (iPad, iPad mini, iPhone) with iTunes on our iMac the settings on iMessage and phone settings change. We use the same Apple ID and have different e-mail addresses and phone numbers; however, each time a device is sync'd on iTunes on our iMac, the iMessage settings and phone settings are changed so that we all each get each other's text messages and phone calls. After the device is sync'd/charged, I have to go into each device (all of them somehow update when only one is sync'ing) and re-set the settings to what we want. How can I prevent settings from being changed each time?

    Okay I've tried safe mode.  Let it run down to 98%, plugged it in, locked the screen, and waited.  A few minutes later, the screen came on showing the 100% icon at the top right, full battery icon just to the left of the time, 100% text to the left of that.
    I'm not going to do a hard reset until I have confirmation that this is not normal behavior for the phone because that's going to take hours of my time and gigabytes of data transfer to get all of my media and apps back on the phone and configured.
    After all my griping, I do have to give credit where it's due.  This phone is much more efficient than my Galaxy Nexus.  I left the S5 running in WiFi hotspot mode while on battery last night.  It still had over 50% left on the battery.  The Galaxy Nexus would be stone dead after about 4 hours.  I can live with that if I have to but I'd really rather be able to leave it on the charger at night.

  • Downloads show in downloads window, but disappear from window as soon as finished downloading.

    I start a download (say, CCleaner from filehippo.com). The firefox "downloads window" opens and the file appears, downloads, virus scans, but then it just disappears. I'm left with an empty "downloads window". The downloaded file is in my downloads folder and I have to run it from there.
    It never did this before and changing settings in OPTIONS or disabling ADD-ONS has no effect.

    See:
    *Tools > Options > Privacy > Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history" > "Remember download history"
    Also check the Clear Recent History (and CCleaner) settings if you use it.
    *Tools > Options > Privacy : History: [X] Clear history when Firefox closes > Settings

  • Suspicious Firefox download window

    An official Firefox download window was presented for a security update. I did this and a few minutes later, another window appeared mentioning an add-on Firefox update. It had a hyperlink in the window for more information about the update--but the link did nothing. I was half-asleep and can't believe I hit 'next' --it began installing. I realized in that instant it might not be a legitimate update and closed the install window before it completed--am I safe from the virus it was probably trying to put on my computer?

    There have been quite a few bogus sites recently that purport to be an update for Firefox but are trying to get you to install malware.
    To ensure that you have not been infected, try running several malware scanners. It is best to run several as each will pick up things that the others miss. Some scanners you can try are:

    Downloading is not started because of a lot of errors like

  • Firefox download window blank after macosx upgrade

    Hi,
    things worked fine on MacBook, macosx 10.4 and Mozilla 3.6
    Since I upgraded to macos x 10.6, the Firefox download window still popped up but went blank after a fraction of a second.
    Now upgraded to Mozilla 4.0 and the download window is now always blank.
    Had a try with Safari, which works fine.
    Went through all the instructions in
    http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Downloads%20window%20is%20blank
    and problem is still there.

    That worked. Thanks very much.

    Hi ShinefromOKC,
    Welcome to the Support Communities!
    The article below may be able to help you with this.
    Click on the link to see more details and screenshots. 
    iTunes: Specific update-and-restore error messages and advanced troubleshooting
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts3694
    Error 13, 14, 35 and 50 (or -50)
    These errors are typically resolved by performing one or more of the steps listed below:
    Perform USB isolation troubleshooting, including trying a different USB port directly on the computer. See the advanced steps below for USB troubleshooting.
    Put a USB 2.0 hub between the device and the computer.
    Try a different Dock Connector or Lightning Connector to USB cable.
    Eliminate third-party security software conflicts.
    There may be third-party software installed that modifies your default packet size in Windows by inserting one or more TcpWindowSize entries into your registry. An incorrectly set default packet size can cause this error. Contact the software manufacturer that installed the packet-size modification for assistance. Or, follow this article by Microsoft to reset the packet size back to the default for Windows:How to reset Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
    Connect your computer directly to your Internet source, bypassing any routers, hubs, or switches. You may need to restart your computer and modem to get online.
    Try to restore from another known-good computer and network.
    I hope this information helps ....
    Happy Holidays!

    Hi K,
    I never noticed that before. Mine only changes by a few bytes, unless I add a lot to the Word doc. I don't believe you can "lock it in."

  • Why does Calendar keep reverting from full screen each time I exit the app?

    I'm using a 2014 Macbook Air. It's running Yosemite.
    Why does Calendar keep reverting from full screen each time I exit the app?
    On my older Macbook at work, calendar stays full screen whether I exit the app or restart the computer (similar to Mail - which is staying in full screen on both computers).
    Please help me adjust settings so I don't have to keep putting Calendar into full screen.
    Thanks!

    I have sort of the exact same problem. Extremely far away from user friendly
    I have an second issue as well: When I hook off all-day it comes up with an 8 hour event!
    And then if I put in a late start hour it pushes end time to next day due to the 8 hour event suggestion.
    All in all this gives a lot of changes just to enter an event.
    Command N
    I learnt from your input to use this fuction. At least that comes up with a one hour event as default.
