Hi, i have a PowerBookG4 running running OS X version 10.2.8

im trying to download some web browsers, ive tried firefox, camio and opera.

each one 2 or 3 times, however when the download finishes it will only appear as a excel document, when selected it opens in excel with pages of code.

Is there anything i can do?

Hmm.

Somewhere in your computer's lifetime, it was told that file extensions with .sit or perhaps .hqx or perhaps .dmg should be opened in Excel. I am trying to find where you can configure how the extensions determine applications, but am at a loss for the moment.

In the meantime, you can tell Safari to save the file in a folder, and then after the download is done, go to Stuffit Expander, and manually decompress the file, and mount the disk image.

sorry to keep bothering everyone, but in safari how'd i download to folder? it currently only allows me to download to disc.

Opera and firefox are .dmg files

hi

i think the problem maybe the fact diskimagemounter no longer appears to be on my system. obviously something i have done.

when a .dmg file is downloading it appearrs on the the desktop as a plain white piece of paper and i know it should have your 'home' symbol in the middle of it.

anything with .dmg on the end just converts to an excel file when finished, or opened! but i know the white disk image should appear when finished and it does not.

can i get the diskimagemounter back on my machine, without the use of a .dmg file?
