When I visit these forums I quite often see an Internet Explorer message "Do you want to open or save button.js from api.tweetmeme.com?". This worries me because it seems the site is trying to download something without my requesting it, and potentially without my permission were IE not blocking it. Normally I would associate such behaviour with malicious sites. Does anyone know anything about this? I am using IE10 with Win 7.
Tweetmeme is a plugin to show the twitter button. It's not malicious, millions of sites use it of course. However it shouldn't be popping up a dialogue.
I'll look into this now, it's a bug somewhere..

Thanks again, Frank."
That's nice Frank. Unfortunately, you apparently did not fix it in IE 11, running on Windows 7, as it is continuing to pop up in various sites.
