/windows-d/academic discipline/study objects/areas/human aspects/social sciences/communication/ways of communication/way of spread, ie electronic media and communication/application/telephone communication/examples/cell phone/me/verizon/bill/
I then build a directory named
hahaunder the above long path. Note that
haha is exactly as long as the name of the shortened file name (extension
haha, although I specify it to. But I can download the file to other directory with much shorter path name, and have no problem with copying the file into
I wonder how to explain the strange behaviour of Firefox?
