I am computer-dumb.

But I use one, and need to figure this problem out.

When I open an email that has a word attachment or something, I used to just click on it, and my downloads folder would appear and I would open the document from the downloads folder.

Now, when I click the attachment, the download folder appears, and the bar that shows downloading occuring, flickers on the folder for about 2 seconds, and then disappears.  THe download folder shows nothing.


If I dig through my finder application, I can find the attachment that I want, and open it from there, but this takes too long.


How can I fix this download folder problem?


Help please.
