    I think there's something wrong with your browser. I gettin' the same when i'm using Opera on Windows. So, I think it's the same problem. Try to download another browser for MAC and try again.

    Working fine for me.

    Opera 9.64.


    This is a long shot, but OP it might help if you post what the numbers and letters are.

    Did you try "Right-Click- Download Linked File?

    If you need a program to open the RAR google "RAR Expander Mac"

    If not try Firefox instead of Safari

    Which file is it, gimme the page address and I'll try it. I'm on an iMac using OmniWeb.

    Did you try right-clicking and saving the linked file that way?
