    Alright, as most of you know, I am a MAC n00bie.

    When I try to download a .DMG file, it just opens in a new browser. I find it annoying I can't download applications. I have tried Safari, Chrome and Firefox. Certain applications download normally (download maanger for the browser) and some just open up in a new window.

    It sucks. When this happens, I have to make an a href link in textedit and save it as html and right click > save as.

    Any input?

    You're probably just downloading the dmg to a folder other than the Desktop.

    When you find a link to a .dmg file, right-click it and select "Download linked file"
