I think this is a problem with the way the website is set up - the web server
reports the mime type of the firmware files as "text/plain". This is why
Netscape (correctly IMHO) tries to display it in a browser window when you
left-click on it. Internet Explorer seems to ignore mime types, which is why
it doesn't try to display the file - but prompts to save it instead.

If the website is running apache, adding the line:

addtype application/octet-stream mod ajz

to a ".htaccess" file in the document root directory should make the firmware
files appear to browsers as binary files, and hence prompt for saving.
