Problem exporting Sonicwall TZ180

When I try to export the settings on  TZ180 all I get is this.  How do I export them so I can use them on a new Sonicwall?

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
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

New firmware fixed the issue.

You are very welcome :)

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.
