Why is it that on my Mac when I click on the link to open the thread I instead get a download of a textedit document?

Does anyone else have this problem?

Sorry - not sure what you're trying to do and what's going wrong?
Can you clarify?

I get something similar. Here's a pic:

I've had the same with 2 other threads: "Bequesting/Gifting a copyright" and "AIBU toast them NOT to buy me a birthday gift". When I click on the link in active threads it downloads a zero bytes TextEdit doc and doesn't take me to the thread. I'm also using a Mac.

I click on the link which I expect to take me to the discussion. Instead it does as chrisrobin says.

This is the link:

Don't know if it's specific to Macs, or is happening on all computers.

I've clicked that link and it's done the same. I'm on a laptop.

Yup, same - on a windows PC using Chrome.

same on windows / chrome

IF Pyjamaface wants to repost however, it's an area I have much experience of!
