I'm not sure if this helps, but try this:

Go to Tools > Options. Click the General tab. Under Downloads check Always ask me where to save files.


Question owner

Solution : - go to extra - go to opties (options) - go to toepassingen (applications) - choose correct inhoudstype (content type), and change in 'action' : always ask instead of save file
