hi guys, searched the forums and the Internet for an issue which has been bugging me for quite some time, and still can't find an answer. i can't seem to download.. anything! the problem started to occur when firefox just stopped downloading dmg files. google chrome could. then the problem went on to chrome and safari. 1. clicking on links to downloads just shows a new blank browser screen that's in perpetual loading 2. ran disk utility, still nothing 3. tried to download dmgs, etc using torrent apps like utorrent, still nothing 4. opened a new user account. nada. 5. firefox, safari, google chrome ... same results. 6. i can download on my windows 7 partition though. 7. software update downloads and email attachments work what am i missing? my last option is to reformat but i'd want to avoid this for obvious reasons. takes too much time. any insights? thanks in advance!
