The link you specified takes me to
which is their general page and doesn't have a "i accept" link.

Can you provide another URL or a testcase?

Thanks for the updated URL. Replacing the old url by the new one provided in
comment 3. The old URL was:

Mark, your URL wraps a bit weird: i don't know if "better/" is part of the URL?

Leaving that part out and using
i get a SAVE AS dialog and Moz starts downloading a file called R64913.exe as it
should. Do i need to d/l the full 35Mb to observe the crash? That is: at what
point does your Moz crash?

File completes downloading for me w/o a problem, using XP Pro and Moz
2004030409. Do you use anything else in particular [firewalls, virusscanners
etc] that can interfere with this?

Have you tried downloading using a new/clear profile?
What are your helper applications [EDIT - PREFERENCES - NAVIGATOR - HELPER
APPLICATIONS] for application/octet-stream [because that's what the server
offers according to LiveHTTPheaders]

smmmmmoooth move!   

this morning was playing with NS7.1 seeing if i could get an earlier bug to
'follow' it to NS7.1.  

i deleted all of the 'profiles' and the problem went away!

thanks again for your help and sorry to have wasted anybodys time (especially my
own) with something i should have known to do first!

Great, happy you got it working :)
One nit: resolution "FIXED" means "A fix for this bug is checked into the tree
and tested." 

That's not the case here :) So i'm reopening it...
