Default Help with Dolphin Browser!!

I was looking for a better browser and for my money Dolphin is the best one. But I can't download anything! I've tried pdf, mp3, and gif all from different sites and every time it just says "download unsuccessful." I've managed to download the same files using the built in browser but I can't seem to get dolphin to work. Please help!

I use dolphin also. How do you download? I tried downloading an mp3 from mpiii.com but the best I could get it to do was stream.

Edit: just tried downloading the Google image and I too got download not successful.

Well you've got me something to figure out today lol

If you click and hold on any link, you click on the link option that pops up and then save is an option. I have no problem downloading files using the built in browser.

Thing that I've noticed though is some things that won't download with dolphin, still download with The default browser. Kinda strange imo.

That's exactly what I'm talking about. Anyone have a fix?

You might be browsing the "Google Optimized For Mobile Browsing" version of the site.
On most sites you'll have a link at the bottom to view native page or something like that.
Click that and then hold down the link until the menu pops up. You should be able to save with no problems.
I had the same issue with some pics and this was the workaround.
