Since few weeks I am not able to open files with .asp extension.
There was no problem over a long time, maybe the issue started with the actualization of OS X, moving to OS X 10.6.5 or with the actualization of Safari, moving to 5.0.3.
Please let me know what I can do to re-open .asp files.
Thanks

    Is it just that page you're having the trouble with, gamapa? If so, I suspect the problem is with the page itself rather than your Safari ... all of my Windows browsers (IE 8, Safari 5.0.3, Firefox 3.6.12 and Chrome 7.0.517.44) show a blank white page when I open it in them, too.

    Maybe an issue of this rss feed?


    Possibly ... although it could also be an issue with the scripts they are using to generate the text in the .asp pages, or some other issue with their servers:

    [.ASP File Extension|http://www.fileinfo.com/extension/asp]

    Whichever issue is causing the problem, I'm pretty sure the problem is with the paper rather than your Safari. (There's just nothing to see on their .asp pages at the moment.)

    Hallo Everybody, I have a similar issue.
    I run a Macbook Pro, and I operate into an internet based ERP system (managed by microsoft machines)
    In this system, which completely works through internet, I can create orders, invoices, then I tap "create invoice" and get a pdf file.
    Till few weeks ago it worked smoothly: I tapped "create invoice", the system worked and few seconds later adobe reader opened showing me the file from a .asp document. Now it doesn't work anymore.
    If I tap "create invoice", adobe reader doesn't do anything, but the .asp file is created into the "download" folder with the name "print preview", so I have to go into that folder and manually open the file.
    This leads in a waste of time and some confusion if I issue many documents at a time, which I find all mixes up with names "print preview 1" - 2 - 3...
    Does anybody have a clue on how I can open the .asp files into adobe reader automatically as they are created?

    Thank you in advance

    I found the solution to my question. Probably during some update a setting into Firefox-Preferences-Applications was changed, then for ASP file the action selected was "save in download" instead of "open with reader"
