What about permissions on /home, /usr, /usr/home?  And the owner has
permissions to read, write, and execute?  What fs is the partition.

Can't help you much there, it depends on where you told it to save it
as, though if you used mozilla to d/l it, you can try d/ling another
file and see what directory mozilla tries to save it in.  I've used that
trick before when I forgot to tell it to save it in the right location.

If you really want help with this, it would be nice if you asked with a
little less whining and trying to tell us how well XP is working doesn't
help much either.  If FreeBSD was worked as flawless and easy as XP in
the areas where XP is better than there would be no reason for anyone to
use XP anymore and the world would convert to FreeBSD.
