Firefox Downloading Files Error


I did a yum update on my computer and I now have a small issue with Mozilla Foxfire and downloading the Nvidia drivers:

I need the latest NVIDIA DRIVER but when I select it to download it opens up an other tab starts running the file like this:

Code:
#! /bin/sh
skip=947
CRCsum=750389129
MD5=c8d9e5657a19d9b1c96ffc0d771d7263
label="NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 1.0-9746"
major_version=1
minor_version=0
patch_version=9746
pkg_version=1
script=./nvidia-installer
targetdir=NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9746-pkg1
scriptargs=""
keep=n
add_this_kernel=
TMPROOT=${TMPDIR:=/tmp}
TARGET_OS="Linux"
TARGET_ARCH="x86"

#
# NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 1.0-9746
# Generated by Makeself 1.6.0-nv
# Do not edit by hand.

# NVIDIA Driver Installation .run file
#
# If you were trying to download this file through a web browser, and
# instead are seeing this, please click your browser's back button,
# left click on the link, and select "Save as..." (or do whatever is
# appropriate for your web browser to download a file, rather than view
# it).

# print usage information

if [ "$1" = "-help" -o "$1" = "--help" -o "$1" = "-h" ]; then
    echo ""
    echo "$0 [options]"
    echo ""
Eventually it will go into binary display
Under the preference folder I have the "Save all files to this folder" selected and I can't see any other options that would be messing me up

Suggestions?

How about doing what the file itself suggests?

Alternately, if you wait until the whole thing loads in your browser, you should then be able to go to file>save page as and save it to your disk. Simply rename the saved file back to the name it originally had and it should work fine.

yum update has been working !great! until last night

THIS MORNING did a yum update and got fewer errors

Error: Missing Dependency: python(abi) = 2.4 is needed by package yum
Error: Missing Dependency: python-abi = 2.4 is needed by package python-crypto
Error: Missing Dependency: python(abi) = 2.4 is needed by package bittorrent
Error: Missing Dependency: python(abi) = 2.4 is needed by package python-crypto

I even tried yum update python to no avail!

In doing the yum update last night, seemed like there was an enormous volume of updates
I saw
a new kernel 2.6.19-1.2912.FC7
many things suffixed by FC7
Firefox 2.0

No updates were made due I guess to the error.

I am not a Linux newbie but I guess a yum newbie
