    Clearly something wrong with your Mac's automatic decompression which needs fixing later but for now it is easy to use Terminal again:

     

    1 - Open the Terminal application - in Utilities

     

    2 - Type the following:

     

    unzip

     

    3 - type a space

     

    4 - drag the file to be unzipped to the terminal window and release the mouse button

     

    5 - hit the return key

     

    6 - wait a while for a for the file to be unzipped and put into your Home folder

     

    7 - follow my previous instructions from here.

    SeaMonkey may be better but it is not easy to find the latest version for Leopard on Intel - I think it may be somewhere between 2.1 and 2.13 - perhaps somebody can post a link to the information.

     

    At the time of writing the SeaMonkey web pages are a mess. The last official build compatible with Leopard on Intel was 2.13.2 which was released at the end of October 2012. It can be downloaded from the following link but please ignore links to system requirements as they incorrectly point to the system requirements of later versions: http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/2.13.2

     

    Whilst this OP has an Intel Mac those with PPC Macs may be interested in a well respected unofficial build - see my page for details: http://links.zero.eu.org/seamonkey/

    Two thoughts spring to mind:

     

    1 - incomplete download or

     

    2 - file damaged by earlier attempts.

     

    The size of my iCab_501_UB is 12,666,358 bytes. How big is yours?

    Have attempted to download and unzip this file dozens if times-each time file is same size

     

    Is this the size before or after unzip?

     

    791 bytes is too small for an alias - could be an image or corrupted file.

    Here is a way to do everything at once. It will put the extracted iCab folder into Applications for you.

     

    1 - Open the Terminal application - in Utilities

     

    2 - Type or paste the following:

     

    cd /Applications; curl -O icab.clauss-net.de/icab/iCab_501_UB.zip; unzip -oq iCab_501_UB.zip

     

    3 - hit the return key

     

    4 - wait a while for a for the file to be downloaded and unzipped

     

    5 - Open the iCab application in the iCab folder in Applications.
