If you click the down button, the option is Other... When you click that, it asks you what program to open the file with. I tried downloading the file to my harddrive (not opening, saving), I clicked OK, and the dialog disappeared (as it should) but when looking in the download manager, FF is not downloading the file. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://www.3dgamers.com/dlexit/intelenet/games/quake3arena/linuxq3ademo-1.11-6.x86.gz.sh.html 2. Click "Click here if the download doesn't start after 5 seconds." 3. A dialog box will open. Choose "Save", click OK. Check download manager Actual Results: Nothing starts to download, download manager doesn't show file wanting to download. Expected Results: File should start to download, download manager should show it.

I got a 403, which just means that access to that particular file is forbidden. However, Bugzilla history shows me that patrick has since marked this 'fixed'. Since we can't point to any client-side fix--and we've had many successive Firefox versions since--marking this as worksforme.
