Your customer just needs to learn a little more about how her browser works and the options available.

In OS X, Opera and Firefox will do the same as the major browsers in Windows, e.g.when you click on a download link they have a popup window that will ask whether you want to open or save the file.

A lot of people want to do the same thing every time with downloaded files, either open or save. Therefore, Safari does one or the other everytime, depending on how their preferences (properties in Windows terms) are set. By default, it auto downloads files into a location set in Safari's preferences. The default location is the 'Downloads" folder. Safari also opens a "Downloads" window where you can double click on the file from there to open it or head to the Downloads folder later.




To set Safari to open these files automatically in it's preferences see below.


I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
