this is not for support, but I just wanted to let you know that your *.tar.gz files do not work. When I try oppening one in WinZip I get Error readng header information after processing 0 entries[quote]

It looks like the newest files are corrupt or something. Look at the file size, its like 4k. Go back a few versions and find the one that is like 600k+.
later,

Also, I'd suggest using WinRAR to open tar.gz files (as I find it handles them nicer)

*cough* PKZip Suite 6.0 Standard, paid for :D
(PKWare is the inventor of ZIP, that's right folks, WinZip did NOT invent the Zip format...)

I used to get the exact same error, until I realized that for some reason the files were being saved as *.tar.gz.tar rather than *.tar.gz. I have no problems opening the files with WinZip if I ensure that they are saved with the correct extension.

Yeah, for some reason mozilla likes to add the extra .tar at the end. But if you see a package under say 500KB, don't download it.

Can't say I've noticed mozilla adding a .tar onto the end of .tar.gz files

Simple solution: Use IE for a couple minutes to download it.

I actually had my problems using IE and Firebird. Just had to be careful to check the extension.
