    Hello,

    for some reason whenever I download an mp3 I end up getting a duplicate of the file automatically.

    I have no idea why this would happen.

    Any help is appreciated.

    It happens when downloading from any site with free mp3's, such as Soundcloud.com.

    I download to a downloads folder I created, and I am using OSX 10.7.3.

    When I download I either click on the download link, or ctrl+click and "save target as".

    Which browser do you use and can you post an example link?
