New Only natural
It's afraid to piss you off. It just toys with the rest of us... except me, and that's only because I don't have an XP machine at the moment.
New did for me..
opened the new 'info bar' thing with the warning

XP pro SP2, IE6

Just tried again and figured out what's happening.

Clicking the windows download link ([link|http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/0.9.3/FirefoxSetup-0.9.3.exe|http://ftp.mozilla.o...oxSetup-0.9.3.exe]) from
[link|http://www.mozilla.org/|http://www.mozilla.org/]
The file downloads as expected.

However, going to the Firefox page ([link|http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/|http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/]) and click 'Download now' generates the message. The message is generated because the 'download now' link brings up yet another page which automatically requests the download. It is a security feature because the user didn't actually request the file to be downloaded, the browser did.

Ships were made for sinking, whiskey made for drinking. If we were made of cellophane we'd all get stinking drunk quite faster! Ah, ha, ha!
