    After downloading a .dmg file, how do I get the file to open automatically?

    .dmg should just open by double clicking on it, not automatically :)

    you should never do that, its a high risk operation by safari, strongly recommend to turn it off.

    totally agree it has been shown to be a weak point in Safari quite a few times in the past and would never suggest trying that on.

    I double click the item's icon in the downloads window and it mounts
