Latest release build (0.7), Windows XP. Sometimes when I click on a link, instead of loading the requested page, I get the file requestor asking where I want to save the file. Usually it's either a PHP or an ASP page. I can middle click on the link and it comes up okay in another tab, but I can't seem to get a regular left click to load it. Reloading the page doesn't help. Restarting Firebird may, I haven't tried, next time it happens, I will.

Is this possibly a case of the sites not sending the proper MIME type (which has often been an issue before)?

If I restart the browser and go to the same site it works.
