To this day, it still annoys me. One of the STUPIDEST WORDINGS of ANY box. "

You have chosen toopen"i

Then give me the choice to open it not just save it. Just got off the phone with someone trying to intsall office. She was using firefox, clicked install office. It gave her that box and she clicked save. She didn't know she had to go up and open the file she just downloaded.

That being said it can protect users too, beause it seems most don't know they actually have to run the file after they download it, i've seen peoples download directories who use firefox that look like this
