    Whenever I click on a download from Safari (and maybe other browsers too), it sends me to the URL and doesn't download for me. Instead, i have to right click and use " Download Linked File". What can I do so I can click and download??

    I am also having this problem. I have used Safari from day one but this has recently started happening. Sometimes even right clicking does not solve the problem as it just downloads an html link. Sometimes it goes to a new window (black) and it is obviously downloading something as the progress bar fills up but a search of my drives reveals nothing has been saved. Help!!!
