If you are using Mozilla Firefox on Vista, you will be taken straight to the “Save As� details pop-up box; go to Step 5. If you are using Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox on an older operating system such as Windows XP, you will see a pop-up box the same as or similar to the ones shown below; go to step 4.</p>
