    I clicked on a job listing link at and was surprised to see this file automatically downloaded:


    I was thinking that I had it set up that I would always be asked before downloading any file, but I may be thinking of Chrome or something else, as I looked around for such a setting and couldn't fine one.

    I currently do not have Adobe Flash installed as I just reset my whole system with time machine back to when I had a clean install of OS X, so perhaps this is a response to not having a flash player?

    I did not click on the item and sent it to trash, but just wondered if this is auto-downloading is normal with no option to change, or if I should find change a setting somewhere so that it prompts me before downloading?

    I'm also wondering if anyone is familiar with this file?
