Right-clicking on the "the js file" link and selecting "Save Link As..." Seems
to begin downloading and the DL Manager opens, but it hangs and doesn't finish.
Clicking on the link normally displays the contents of the file as expected.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-click on "the js file" hyperlink 
2. Select "Save Link As..." and select a download location.
3. Watch as the DL Manager opens up and nothing happens.

Actual Results:  
The DL Manager looks like it's downloading, but the "amount downloaded" never
increases much. Only option is to cancel the download.

Expected Results:  
As in IE, it should download near-instantly

Try clearing the downloaded files cache.

After clearing the cache, it worked. However, I noticed that the problem
returned after mousing-over the menu, which uses the same *.js file to work.
Now, the Download Manager says it has downloaded 3K at ___ kb/s, in it's
"downloading, total size unknown" state perpetually. After clearing the cache
but prior to activating the script by mousing-over the menu, the file downloads
just perfectly.
