This worked fine for me with Firefox 2.0, Mac 10.4
I clicked on the link, a window pops up asking me what to do: Open in Preview or download. I select 'download' and the file download correctly.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!
