when i try to download files from firefox and opera (for checking)
i get the error:

/tmp/$somerandomlettersandnums could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents of that folder.

What are the permission on "/tmp"?

Change the folder properties and try again in a different location.

opera: (9.23)
You do not have write access to the specified directory

Do you have a directory "/emul/linux/tmp" on your system?
If you have what are the permissions?

        Kind regards

/tmp is rwxrwxrwxt
Well they are not correct, on emul/tmp
But why dont i have them one system but have them on another system
that supposedly should be the same (release 4.0)

however i found to tmp directories under linux emul, one in
drwxr-xr-x   3 root  wheel  512B Jan  7 09:45 tmp/
and one in:
drwxr-xr-x   3 root  wheel   512 Jan  7 09:45 tmp/

So i solved my original problem,

My new Question is, does anyone know why, there is a difference in
the two installations, and where does the emul/*/tmp come from on the
system that had a fresh install?
