I was looking for info about Sim City 2k for DOS. I found a web page of ready made Sim City, city''s each in there own zip file's. When I click on the zip file to download it. The download didn't start. Instead a 2nd Firefox window opens up. The 2nd window is a white blank page. Then a Firefox sign in window opens. Asking for my user name and password. I didn't enter my user name or password. Instead I screen captured that sign in box. See the Dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/s/zxdmcyic6kx6g ... n.jpg?dl=0 It makes me wonder, is there something stinky in Denmark here, so I am making this post. BTW I have been stung bad in the past, that's why I am questing this now.

You've never run into a website that requires you to login before you download something from the site?
Very common, indeed.

`Yes I have run into web pages that require me to sign in. But the web page downloads where I had to sign into. I 1st had to register with before I could sign in and do any download's. This web page I just stumbled on while I was looking for a MS-DOS hex editor that was designed for SimCity 2k MS-DOS version. And the MS-DOS hex editor also had to be combatable with DosBox. It took a lot of hunting to find this old hex editor. There are a lot of look alike phonys out there to sift trrough. Anyways like I said I stumbled on this web page. I didn't ask if I could download the zip files. The main page that I stumbled on has no restrictions. So there it is.

Moving to MozillaZine Tech as this seem to have nothing to do with Firefox.

DanRaisch. It does have something to do with Firefox. I was using Firefox browser when this incident took place.

Try another browser then and see if the problem happen there as well. If it does then you'll know if it's a website issue.

Thanks, Frank. That was going to be my question.
