There is no download blocking in Mozilla Firefox, I know that. I'm not so sure about Opera, because I have had no experience with it, and it is a proprietary browser (you have to buy it). Try PMing one of the Moderators. They might tell you the right thing to do.

This is a link to the Moderator board. There also are three Administrators on these forums (kylenstone, bcappel, and cpoff) that are even higher up.

Or, here's my list of helpful members:

waldojim, StalePancake, WinTard, quackadilly, Flashorn, myloginname, Nuke61, and lexon are all helpful members.

The member names are case-sensitive, so be careful when PMing.

To PM, click your user name and you should see a menu. Click "Messenger" out of that menu and click "Compose New". Type in one of these member, Moderator, or Administrator names into the recipient box. You could add other recipients on the next line, up to five. Then, explain this situation to them.
Best regards,

What specifically are you trying to accomplish?

Do you have a computer that other people can use and you want to prevent them from being able to download stuff to your computer (and potentially "muck it up)?

Or is there some other reason?
Good riddance PCWorld.

Hmm, when you said you have to buy it..did you mean the premium support? Or the whole browser itself?

Because I've been using Opera on and off for 2 years and i've never had to pay to use it. If there is anything you'd pay for about Opera, it would be "Premium" Support. As for blocking downloads in opera, i've been through all the features and tools and even searched the knowledge base in Opera support and there is nothing that i can find about blocking or disabling "downloading" on the browser. If there is a feature or a tool for that, it must be hidden. Hopefully there is another member here that is more knowledgable in Opera than i am.

If it exists and is hidden, it may be available via the opera:config command typed in the address bar.

Nope...it is free. From the Opera FAQ page:

Quote

Do users have to pay for Opera?

Opera is entirely free of charge and ad-free since version 8.5. Premium support is still available.

Good riddance PCWorld.

I don't use Opera.

As for firefox, I can only suggest using an add-on.

Edit: THere's this
