Annoying downloaded files dialog
 
Since using Leopard I notice an irritating dialog asking me (as if im a retard) if wish to open it.

This is apparent in some other browsers I believe.

Here is the dialog

What is process is responsible for this and can it be disabled?

Thanks

It is a new feature of the system and can't be disabled. Nothing to do with your browsers.

Edit: Fwiw, it is to help prevent a drive-by download from being mistaken for something non-malicious. Whether or not you want it, it is there and can't be turned off.
