    Looking back, perhaps I should post this in the Tiger bugs, but I'm not sure it's a bug...

    I just upgraded to Tiger and have found I can no longer see, let alone grab and download Mpeg files when using activity viewer...

    I normally use control-click to grab ads that I view from websites such as Adforum. Windows XP took this function away long ago and makes users hunt in temporary Internet files, so I was very pleased to be able to have this feature with my Apple.

    Now I've lost it, and it's a very important function for me!!!

    Does anyone know a way to work around this or get the ability back? I no longer even see the mpeg files - ads just open up in a new window and play, with no evidence of the actual file being shown in activity monitor!

    Thanks for any help anyone can offer... This, along with losing SPSS, is making me unhappy with my decision to upgrade.

    17 inch PB 1.33 / 1 GB RAM / Tiger 10.4

    I'm assuming you're talking about the activity window in Safari, in which case I have observed this as well.

    Yes, using Safari I could previously see and download streamed video (ads, movie previews, etc.) as it buffered to play. Thanks for the clarification...

    Anyone know a way to resume capturing video via the Internet or a way to regain this ability in Safari under Tiger?
