It says to leftclick and click "save target as" when we do that in firefox it just downloads some php file
Is this a bug can we fix it.
Because when we try to download it by wget it atleast correctly determines that it is a mp3 song.But it cant download it.Plzzzzz can somebody plz help me how to do that download????

pranith.

I just click the link and it gives me a dialog asking for what do to, where one choice is "save to disk" and next it asks for a location. That's it.

hi,
thanks for ur reply but my question is not that. problem is not for all things it is just for some sites like the one i have stated there http://www.emp3world.com
when u do what is stated there the link is not redirected sothat the browser can start downloading it.It works for all windows browsers but i couldnt understand why it doesnt work for linux browsers.
this is my doubt.
thanks
bye,
pranith.
