    Default Pop-up?

    I keep getting a little information bar at the top of the browser and it says this website is trying to download something. My browser prevents it from popping up though.

    I'm getting the same thing, but my browser is set to block it. It says v.1 download file I think, no idea why it wants on my computer so bad.
    Nothing is permanent.

    Yeah....I keep getting some Java Script pop up that's trying to download something like v1.js or something like it. I don't trust the name of the file so I just don't allow it on here.
    Plus Java usually tells me when it wants to update. Not spontaneously spam my browser.

    Don't need to mess my computer up again -_-

    I have far greater things to be accomplishing than catering to your insubordination

    I keep getting it too. I only say yes to those things if I know I'm the one who triggered it, like clicking the download button for fr. I just say no and ignore it.

    I get those a lot to. Some websites have a lot of those. The pop ups (commercialism) helps pay for the site, so some cant be 'turned off'

    Is this on FRI? Rose and I have been getting a "v1.download" file automatically saved onto our computers, as well. If you know where files are saved by default, I would suggest deleting it as soon as you can. If it forces itself on you, it can't be good. (Not saying it's bad, though. I've been deleting them so fast I don't notice any abnormalities.)
    If you're talking about the v1.download, Rose has already brought it up and it's being looked in to.

    If you can, try to pay attention to the advertisements on the page when this file is saved. If there's a specific advertisement that's doing this, it should help Kade and co. to know the source of the trouble. (I may be wrong, though, and Kade may already be progressing rapidly on this.)

    If you know where files are saved to by default on your browser/computer, I would suggest keeping that folder open so that when the file is downloaded you can quickly delete it.

    Status: Quit FR since I never liked FR at all. Will probably not post anymore.

    These ads were on the page the last time the download thing came up:
    iContact
    L.L. Bean
    Borders

    The problem is, I think I've had all of these separate on other pages and the download didn't come up...
