    mp3 and pdfs get "0 bytes of ? - network connection lost" when I try Download linked file or Download link file as...


    It works fine in Chrome.

    Restated Safari (5) and disk permissions are ok...

    Does it still happen if you reset Safari/empty cache? How about in another user account? Do you have a download accelerator or some other plugin installed for Safari that may not affect Chrome/other browsers? Take a look in the following locations for any plugins other than Flash, QuickTime, etc: /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/
    /Library/Input Methods/
    ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/
    ~/Library/Input Methods/

    Click2Flash and Flash itself are installed.
    Safari reset had no change in behaviour
    Logging in as another account made no change.

    I dont remember if it worked under Safari 4 (I normally use FF) - Safari seems to have a lower CPU usage than FF, so Ive been trying to more over to it, but this bug/user error is a bit of a show stopper...

    Have also delete plist and reinstalled Safari 5. No change - seems like nothing from the GRC site can be downloaded in Safari - works in the other browsers :-s
