Trouble downloading aircraft.

Postby DominoChance » Tue Jun 14, 2011 3:04 am

I've been running FG 2.0 for a bit, on an intel imac, OS 10.6, and just now am having trouble adding aircraft. Every single one gets an error message that the zip file won't open and to save to disk first, then open. I'm wondering if it's Firefox 4.0?

Hi DominoChance,

I use Firefox 4.0.1 without any problem downloading aircraft. I wonder if your problem is your file expander. I am currently using 'Stuffit' ( 13.0.3) and have that set as my first choice to unzip files.

I have just looked at my version of Stuffit, and I am informed there is a newer version waiting to be downloaded (14.0.1) so I shall install that today. It may be worth a try for you too.

If that doesn't prove successful, another free for Mac app is called GUI Tar. This seems to be able to handle everything that Stuffit can't.
