Hi there
New to the forum and a new mac user as well

I've started to get a problem with preview.

I use Royal Mail's online postage.

At first when I had completed a purchase when I clicked on the option 'View label to print' the Preview window would open as well as the pdf file downloading to the desktop.
I would do a dozen purchases and then print from individual preview windows.

Now, for the last couple of days, the preview window doesn't open automatically when I click 'view the label', but the file still appears on the desktop.
I know I only have to click on the downloaded file to open it, but I want to know why the preview window isn't opening anymore.

I did update to 10.6.2 the day it came out, but I really can't remember if the problem arose the next time I printed of postage or if it was a day or two later.
I think the problem started maybe Friday or Saturday (when was the update released?)

Thanks in advance for your help

Did some googling and found that the problem was to do with my browser settings (FF).
Don't know how they managed to get changed though.
I just had to change the application settings in the browser to open with Preview and not to save as a file.
Easy when you know how eh!
