Opera 12.02 and the 20-byte phantom "default" file

Opera 2.12 and the 20-byte phantom "default" file

Sometimes while browsing sites with Opera 12.02, and often on msfn, I click on a link and Opera asks me what I want to do with file "default" (20 bytes). I can either open it, or save it, or just cancel. When I save it, I end up with a zero-byte file.

A recent example: I had a notification that someone replied to one of my posts. The URL for the reply was this:

www .msfn .org/board/topic/176709-win7-post-sp1-patches/?do=findComment&comment=1139680

When I click on the URL, or if I right-click and copy the URL and try to open it in a new tab, Opera does the same thing - tells me that I've got to choose what to do with file "default - 20 bytes".

The same thing happens immediately after I post something. The post obviously goes through regardless if I download this phantom default file or if I tell Opera to cancel.

Any ideas what's causing this?

I can open the URL with FF 2.0.0.20 for what that's worth, without FF seeing or asking me about this "default" file, and in it's own fractured way will display the page.

Every time I submit a post to msfn, after hitting the "submit reply" button, this is what I see:
