Save animedb.pl?

Post by No Idea?? » Sat May 22, 2004 10:08 pm

Hi, I have stumble on a problem that I have no idea how to solve coz I don't know much about computer excepts it's very helpful. :P

I have always view the ANIDB page from my favorites folder but today, when i click on it, there is this file downloading popup that ask me to save "animedb.pl" to some place.

What has happened and how do I solve this in order to view ANIDB webpage again? :(

I don't really know what it is but I also got that earlier today but for me it was solved by restarting the webbrowser.

They said it didn't work well with netscape and could be some problems with IE, try mozilla or someting. Personally do I use MyIE2 (http://www.myie2.com)

AniDB is from now using GZip compression and your browser must be able to decode this in realtime. If it's not able it'll ask you if you want to save the outputted data as it thinks it's downloading a binary data stream.

Browsers that do work fine with gzip should be MSIE 5.x and 6.x, Opera 7.x and Firefox/Mozilla.

If you want to get a sure working browser without problems use Firefox (www.mozilla.org).

In my case it just happend once by some reason but it could have been because I shut down MyIE in the wrong way (so I got asked to open the last visited sites) :P

Btw. this was done to save traffic on the website as gzip compression on text and thus on HTML works great and saves 20% or more for traffic for the text pages.

Linux users using Gentoo or custom builds of their browsers may need to include zlib support to make this work.

I have this problem too, and I can't seem to get rid of it.

I was using IE 6 to start with, and i installed an update from microsoft specifically for GZip code, but it didn't help.

I then tried installing MyIE 2, since some others have been saying that that worked, but I still get the message asking if I want to download.

Can someone sugest something? I really want to be able to access AniDB!

No idea??

There's no way I can use IE6 to access the website so now I'm using netscape coz I have it in my system just in case my IE6 not working. I guess it's helpful now.

Anyway I think I'll get another browser downloaded just in case netscape go crazy too. :wink:

Try Mozilla or Opera, they're good alternatives to Internet Explorer.
Or contact support to get help with how to fix your IE browser.
