What are the risks that the upgrade could crash it?  It is several years old.

Like always, you can loose all rules,, but you should not. This is different file in different memory block, but do you have a choice ?

save that text as .exp file
looks like your browser rather than prompting you to save, is opening the file

This has NOTHING to do with corruption and is simply your web browser displaying the XML file contents rather than allowing you to save it.

Upgrading the firmware will help because the saving mechanism is different - but also try a different web browser because I've seen this issue many times and there has been different results with different web browsers.

Vinny is right, hence saving that text as a .exp file would have worked.
