    i don't know what is going on but since i restarted i have some strange popups coming on whenever i open sites from webhistory (i often access sites stored in history via spotlight). and it never did this before.

    but now when i open them it says something like:

    "http://.....blah blah.webhistory is an application which was downloaded from the internet. Are you sure you want to open it?"

    why does it think these webhistory sites are apps now? i don't get it.

    anyone have an idea what's going on?

    Please guys this is very annoying.

    I don't know what's going on nor why now .webhistory files are regarded as apps by safari/ os-x.

    I have the same issue, in fact Leopard seems to have gone way overboard in identifying non-Applications in this manner, almost anything downloaded from a web browser gives this warning.
