Unable to download tar.gz file with iceweasel
Iceweasel 3.5.15 has been running on a Debian Squeeze system for ever,
with no problems. I have been trying to download FreeFileSync_xxx_tar.gz
for Ubuntu from Sourceforge.net. Each time I try the download window
opens normally and the load indicators work normally. When the loading
finishes the system just sits there. The file isn't copied to my
download directory. I have done an updatedb and locate freefile
(FreeFile, FreeFileSync, freefilesync) several times The file is not on
the system. Any other file type seems to work OK. I tried switching to
"Always Ask Me Where To Save File'. Nothing happens with tar.gz. Other
file types work fine. If I click on the Download Window and pick open a
screen pops asking me to pick a program with which to open the file.
Any ideas what is going on here. I tried reinstalling iceweasel to no avail.
