i am having a strange problem while downloading files from the internet. Whenever i click on a file to download , the download confirmation box(the one with save /open option) does not appear ,instead the page page shows a waiting status(in status bar).
However the file continues to be downloaded in the background(and is saved in some other folder). Only after the file is downloaded do i get the download confirmation box asking whether to save or open the file.
I encounter this problem on all browsers i use (firefox/chrome)
