This has to do with internet settings, how to open links.
I looked into that, and changed a setting to let internet explorer decide. And now it opens as you are experiencing.

Now I am removing the Internet explorer from the Open with list for accdb files using the registry. In firefox it does has an option to manage that.

You may, otherwise, right click link and select save target as.
