A lot of my customers have a Mac and want to download via browser zip files that I have prepared for them. No problem with PC and Internet Explorer.
2 problems with Mac :
1. Mac opens directly the zip file (I just want option "save as ...)
2. Does not seem to recognize the format

Thank you for your help.
