Check your extensions in your options menu. You probably have an extension installed without knowing. isohunt.com had that problem for a while some kind of non harming virus or whatsoever. Virus scanners do not pick it up.

Wrench Button > Tools > Extensions > Disable or delete them all.

Problem should be fixed then.

Can sometimes happen, not too familiar with the server type Rich now uses but i know some apache builds can throw out random files as a direct download rather than loading them like the page asks. Personally never had that issue on TA before but it's not too uncommon.

Also you use Norton, your argument is totally invalid. [troll]

I am getting this in Chrome as well when going through My Threads. It's even passing through my network at work, which usually blocks downloads so maybe something internal to Chrome?

Not sure if this is helpful, but I'll leave it here for you. When I try to open this thread on my laptop at home (in Chrome) I get a window opened up asking me to open this file:

[nixx] ZUN - Dolls in Pseudo Paradise [FLAC]

It's a ".rar" file, if that means anything.

Sadly, this is not my most recently visited porn site, but rather seems to be a music download from sites like 4shared.net and filestube.com
