Hi,  I am not to happy with the latest version of Safari, and it has made one problem worse.  When I click on a download link, more often than not, instead of getting a file to download, it opens a new page and appears to be loading the file as raw code.  I will see in the location bar at the top something like:

download.php or FileName.zip, and it cycles a while until the full file is loaded but does not show anything by a blank page...   Before this version I could right click and choose save linked file As and it would usually work, but now that doesn't work.

Anyone else seeing this problem or have a solution?


I have speed downloader but I have it turned off for sites that were problematic, but  Safari doesn' seem to use it anyway, because when it works, it opens a Safari download window, not SD
