I am trying to use Firefox to download and rpm from Oracle using http. Firefox thinks it is a video file and immediately opens Real Networks.

I know how to fix this for Windows (several ways actually).

None of these work in Linux. Any suggestions?

Oh dear, these (ex) M$ people never look :-) .

Don't forget to 'set' a directory where you want the files saved (you probably would want to use the same directory also to save any attachments in Thunderbird- set this in TB). [Suggestion: in your home directory create a directory -- mine is Downloads -- as the one to which the downloaded files will be saved; the default is your home directory.]


In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought that tragedy is just around the corner.
