Now, now... To be fair, he's already said that he gets the raw content as a hex dump (and when did pasting the ASCII of a hex dump get you a properly formatted binary file, anyway?!?), but that isn't what he asked. I think that Don in fact did a good job of following up with a description of the behavior he wants (browser prompt to save the file); he doesn't deserve to be castigated for failing to manually save a bunch of garbage that won't work for him.
Don, I know what you mean and believe that it oughta be available but don't have the browser config chops to tell you how; sorry & good luck. I would use Right Click -> Save As or, better yet, just wget it.
Thanks. I will try it with wget. I thought the old version of Firefox worked this way. I hate it when people "fix" things.
