    This can happen sometimes when your browser doesn't handle the file type properly. I am assuming you are using safari. If so select the url bar and press option+enter and it should initiate the download of the problem file.

    thanks...still no go with the option-option...but I'm firing up Firefox now.

    but there you go, Firefox, in all it's glory worked. Why do I use Safari?

    no really...why?

    Firefox + the following link works for me:

    I've used Safari to download ZiPhone from http://www.downloadziphone.org without any issues?

    Safari wins hands down for me when compared to Firefox, much quicker and lower memory overheads.

    Because FF always feels like a bloated mess compared to Safari.

    I run Safari or Shiira regularly and FF when I need something specific.

    when the file loads as text, all you have to do is let it finish, then go to file -> save as and save the file. remove the txt extension and you have your .tbz file ready to be unzipped.
