Just Installed 1.0.4 over 1.0.1 - no Download Manager

I installed SeaMonkey 1.0.4 last night and allowed it to install over 
the previous
version (1.0.1).  Everything seemed to work fine - all my bookmarklets, 
extensions,
and plugins are working.  I've used it this morning - no obvious 
problems.....

But I tried to download an image from   http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/
this morning, and the image does not appear in the directory it says it
downloaded to.   No file name listed as per the DM function.

The DM window appears, I select where the image is to go and click.
All seemingly normal.  But the image is not saved - not where I saved it.

Cannot find the image name supposedly saved under even with Explorer's
search function - it didn't save it ANYWHERE.

If I click TOOLS | DOWNLOAD MANAGER   nothing happens.

Is it not there?  I have PREFERENCES set to open a progress dialog
AND to prompt for location/last folder used.

What is happening?

Bug in 1.0.4 ?

At least for this one I think I have a solution: Search for the file 
compreg.dat on your hard disk and delete it (quit SeaMonkey before 
deleting it). Normally compreg.dat can be found under [Path to your 
SeaMonkey program folder]\components. This should fix the bug.

Not only in 1.0.4, the issue with the compreg.dat file is much older.

BRILLIANT !!!

I say, old chap, by golly you've done it!

I renamed it xxxcompregxxx.xxx (just in case) and restarted SM.
There was my Download Manager and, son-of-a-gun, it saved the comet pic
exactly where I told it to.

Thanks you very much!

why would you want to delete the compreg.dat file? Since the Download 
Manager isn't working, I would delete the file downloads.rdf, which is 
located in the profile directory.  Then try again.

One cannot argue with success....  It worked !

Perhaps, had I seen your message first, and tried it first, it might have
worked also.   Are the two files intimately related?

Just upgraded two separate machines from SeaMonkey 1.0.3 to 1.0.4 and 
lost the ability to download .exe files, .zip files and .pdf files. 
Looking at this thread, I deleted compreg.dat on one machine, and 
downloads.rdf on the other.  Both fixes worked fine, and everything is 
now back to normal: doanloads.rdf was a tad easier, as the file was 
where I expected to find it, down in the Moz. section of DOCUMENTS AND 
SETTINGS; took me a while to realise compreg.dat was in the SeaMonkey 
section of PROGRAMS, somewhere I very seldom have to go to fix anything.

A bit of Googling tells me corruption of compreg.dat has been an issue 
since Netscape days.  Odd that it's still around.

Don't do that. Install in a new directory, or delete the old version,
before installing to the old directory.

every once in a while you should empty your download manager, so 
problems like these don't happen.  Whenever mine gets a scroll bar, 
then that when I do a clean up of mine.

It seems to have worked for me - except for that Download Manager problem.

By the way, I delete the stuff on my download manager as gwtc says.  If 
you don't, they accumulate and *slow down* the downloads.

I know from experience.....

A Polish immigrant went to the DMV to apply for a driver's license.
First he had to take an eye sight test. The optician showed him a card 
with the letters:
'C Z W I X N O S T A C Z.' "Can you read this?" the optician asked.
"Read it?" the Polish guy replied, "Hell, I know the guy!"
