I am currently unable to download files from SourceForge:
I visit any one of the mirror pages,
"Your download should begin shortly. If it does not, try
or choose a different mirror "

The page refreshes every few seconds, but no download occurs.  When I click on
the direct link to the file, the download goes ahead successfully.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to any Sourceforge download page
2. Wait

Actual Results:  
Page reloaded, no download occurred

Expected Results:  
Download should have occurred.

This is a new problem, possibly since firefox 1.0.1 or adding an extension.

In Seamonkey 2005051105 I see this also, except that even clicking on the link
to the download file does not work.  Pasting the URL of the download page into
Internet Explorer was the only way I could get the download.

Seamonkey won't even download the file when I click on the FCKeditor link above
