I am having no luck opening any of the File Swap files on the BOG site.
I use Firefox and perhaps someone who also uses Firefox could talk me through it please.
Thanks in anticipation,
Maureen

When I open up one of the files, it downloads to my desktop where I open it by double clicking on the icon. If it is a microsoft word document, it opens with that. If it is a PDF file it will ask you do you want to open it? click "open" and you will have to choose adobe reader from the list.
I also use firefox.

Yes - We have a lot of trouble at times, most recent is trying to access the following,

In this general forum - we open
File Swap,
Bush Tracker specific info,
Simpicity Suspension-Service & Parts.

We try to open the file and get the following response

The website can not display the page
Most likely causes:
The website is under maintenance.
The website has a programming error.

What you can try:
Refresh the page.

Go back to the previous page.

More information

This error (HTTP 500 Internal Server Error) means that the website you are visiting had a server problem which prevented the webpage from displaying.

For more information about HTTP errors, see Help.

None of the suggestions work!

This is perplexing and frustrating!

Any suggestions (it happens both on the home PC and the work PC!

Cheers - Ian & Sally

I have sent an email to the member who posted the information to see if he has it on his laptop and can post it again.

Looks like something is wrong with the download, no one has downloaded it since it was placed on the file.

Have a look in the Financial Members Library, the second file on the list, it has been reposted there.
