    Dear Forum:

    I have downloaded a number of news articles from the Web over the last two or three years, especially through the Mozilla Firefox search engine,and other various documents attached to emails, etc. I moved nearly all of them from the Download to the Documents location. Most of them (but not all) have Mozilla picture logos on them, in addition to their various titles. Unfortunately, Mozilla has since stopped working on my desktop, and my Mozilla folder has been declared "empty," so I can't use Mozilla to do anything, anymore. Something happened to my Mozilla, and I don't know what, but I don't know if that is a separate issue or not. Connected or not?

    When I try to use Adobe Reader, it tells me that the Adobe program does not support just about any file I try to open from the Download or Documents page. I'm told that Microsoft Word won't open any document that wasn't written int Word format-whatever. Notepad or Wordpad gives me lists or computer code or scrambles.

    What can you recommend to me, without being accused of advertising? I need help, here. Thanks. comtrain9

    Since Mozilla is not working, what browser are you currently using? What version of Windows?
