I replied to Klas off-list, as I didn't want to prolong a discussion
off-topic. But as you seem to have a similar problem, it might be
better to answer here -- perhaps it can be useful in other situations,
for other list members, as well.
I am not too sure of what is happening, but my browser (IE 6.0 under Win
XP Pro) reacts as expected to links on Klas web page and on mine. A
right-click on a link opens the expected menu with [Open], [Open in new
window], [Save target as...], etc.
The only thing I can think of is that, on my site, all links are calling
main window unchanged while listening to a mp3. Now, perhaps the popup
and/or you may have some browser add-on working to forbid opening pop-up
Can you check both and tell me (off-list) what versions of Windows and
of browser you are using ?
Also, to test this diagnostic, I just added a small "test" link at the
bottom on the first page (very last line - and very small !) that is a
simple link to the first mp3 file. Try to open it... If it works, we'll
know the problem is with the opening of the pop-up window.

My problem is much the same. If I right click on 'test' I can save the
to my hard disk (I enjoyed listening to the Blue Tit) but when I right
click on any of the file names I get a message that Internet Explorer
cannot download the file.
