    Hello all,

    Just recently in the past 2 weeks I cannot download files from Safari (or firefox either for that matter). I upgraded to SL when it came out, so I am not sure if that has anything to do with it.

    On an average website, for a 3rd party application, when I do click on the file to be downloaded I am presented with a dark grey webpage with nothing else in it. However, as a workaround, I will just right click on it and choose "Save linked file to downloads" and that works, so that isn't so bad.

    But on other sites I do not have this same luxury. Like on Apple.com for instance, on all of their software (iTunes, Safari, iWork, etc) they have a button that links you to another page, which the download file starts automatically.....but it doesn't.

    Any ideas on what this could be?

    Thank you!
