How can I download & save an .txt ebook from Russian site in cyrillic and save in Word 2013.


I wish to download ebooks in.txt format and save them in MS Word 2013. The books are in Russian language and therefore need to be converted into cyrillic. I am now using Windows 8 and Firefox19. On my OLD system (xp) and Word 2000 I had no problems. As soon as I pushed the download button, Firefox gave me the option to open the document in MS Word and after that it would give the option to download in cyrillic. Now all that has gone on the new system. Please help! Thanks. The site I am using is Tululu.org
