Since my default for files is binary, I was prompted to either choose a handler,

Tried stepping back one build to 0604
Following occurred.  Clicking on file once again didn't work, but when I chose
Save as, it started up the d/l manager and cranking away.  then the followin
error popped up:
C:\temp\mozilla-win32-installer-sea.exe could not be saved, because an unknown
error occurred.
Sorry about that.  Try saving to a different location.

This happened at 
9824KB of 10668KB
Machine has half a gig of validated DDR memory, and 59.5 gigs of hard drive
space free. Seems unlikely it ran out of anything.
Have you enough space in the temp directory ?

Now that's odd.
Tried downloading again, this time 060308
This time, I was away, so the error message that popped up again got ignored.
However, download manager reported the file successfully downloaded.
Size checks out and installer seems happy with it and whatever sum checks it did.

regarding your question, Matthias, see the portion of that comment where I
mentioned 59.5 gigs free on that partition... (the only one on this windows machine)

Fell back to 2002060308
All saving works correctly once more.
Did not delete profile, so whatever is wrong, was wrong with the browser.
Also, the problem with 2002060408 continued even after a reboot.
O.S. is 98 S.E.
