    Hello All,
    I've worked on mac's for years now (MP's at work and now on my new MBP at home) and never had this problem. For some reason when i try to download anything on my MBP it says it's "transferring data" but no dialogue box asking what i want to do with it. I always have to right click, save as. I'm using FF3 but i tested it in Safari and it's the same problem. I tried it on my PC as well and it works fine. It's just my MBP. I recently uninstalled Speed Download 5 with AppZapper so i'm wondering if that has something to do with it? Thanks in advance!

    By default, downloads go in your Downloads folder (Leopard), the Desktop (Tiger & earlier) or another folder you have designated. You won't get a dialog box unless you Right- or Control-click to save as.
