Not sure when this started happening, but I've noticed it for the last few months now. Whenever I click on download links like Firefox, Epson, Apple, Adobe, etc... it just hangs. My browser tells me it's transferring data, but it just stays there like that. No download happens. However, if click on download links say from sites like Filesonic, links download just fine. Also, sites that have a direct link (as in when you roll over the download link, it tells you the path way to a .dmg file, not a php page that auto connects you to the file), I can do a right click and do a "save link as", that works fine. But if it's the auto connect, like Firefox and Adobe site, I can't do that method. I thought maybe it might be my connection online, but when I go on my brother's Mac, he is able to download instantly from the links I can't. I'm pretty sure something in my system is doing this. But what it is, I have no idea. The last time this happened to me, I full system wipe and reinstall of Mac OS X 10.5 and all my apps was the only way it was fixed. Now it's happening again. Has anyone ran into this issue? Or does anyone know what is causing this on my system? What preference or extension? Thanks.
