Hi to All of you,
From a Mac, with Office for Mac 2011, I am trying to access files from SharePoint 2010, I checks out the file directly from SharePoint from Safari or Mozilla, then when I try to open the documents (.xlsx or docx), it directly sends me an error through the Upload Center (Failed. Open the file to the error):
How can I solve this to ensure I can edit the documents directly, without downloading them through the Upload Center from a Mac? Can this be disabled?

and this tries to open the Upload Center (which I understand open files offline only)

Thank you

You have to download them because the component used to edit in place is for Windows and IE only.  If you run the IE plug-in for FF on Windows you can do it, but once again not on the Mac.
