Very hard to say, if it does not work for you.  I have tried
following the link you give, which opens in my copy of SeaMonkey
(a Mozilla derivative) and then asks if I want to open it with
WinZip, open it with another application, or save it to a file.
I select "Save it to a file", browse to "My documents", and
select [OK].  The download manager then opens, I see 2667Kb
transferred, and the file ends up in "My documents".  Can you
talk us through the analogous sequence of steps on your
computer, and identify at which point it seems to fail ?
