I downloaded music, iTunes, and pictures on fire fox and when I tried to open it, it would not let me click the open button. I've had my laptop for 2 and a half years. I saved everything I downloaded, I looked where I put the downloads and it wasn't there. If you know what I should do please comment everything you know or everything that can be helpful.

I would start scanning your system for viruses or mallware. If you have an anti virus program, run a scan. If you don't, download the free version of Avast.www.avast.com and also get Malwarebytes and scan your system http://www.malwarebytes.org/

Well first of all you need to get your story straight. Your subject line says you can't download anything. Then you say you download music, iTunes and pictures. Then you say it won't open when clicked on, then you say you can't find your downloads.

You've changed your story four times and none of it makes sense. Slow down, take a deep breath and let's work on each problem one at a time.

It might be a permissions issue. Create a folder on the root of your C drive called downloads (or whatever you want to name it) and download the file to that folder. Then see if it shows up.
