That must be where I have gone wrong. A new tab opens up (blank), but
the download dialog popup never appears. There are hundreds of
configuration settings in Firefox - how did you tell Firefox to always
ask for the location?

>you can also copy the link in the mail and paste it in a new firefox

I tried that. It still opens a blank tab.

>and, no, i don't think you can directly download from http in claws.

I don't think so either. I was just wondering if it was possible in
other mail clients.

At least now I know it is something in my Firefox settings.
