Downloading files in Konqueror


I'm using Konqueror 3.1.93 and when I go to download a file from a website such as it will pop up a message telling me that I'm going to download a zip file. So I tell it to open it with ark. When ark loads up, it then tells me that the file ( is really a php file. How do I fix it so that it downloads the file correctly. (btw, it does download correctly in Mozilla)

Another issue with downloading... When I'm on and wish to download something, I'll either left click on it and have the file embedded in my browser or I'll right click it and click "Save As..." and get some random html like file. How do I set up Konqueror to ask me if I wish to save a file everytime I left click on a .tar.gz (or .tar.bz2)?
