download of Oracle Developer Day.ova not working

I'm trying to download the above file to my iMac osx Mountain Lion. I've already downloaded the Virtual Box. When I login for the download, it opens a big text file with lots of liscensing stuff. There's nothing to click to agree so I can get the file, just the big file of legalese. What am I missing?

    Are you following all of the instructions here - http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/databaseappdev-vm-161299.html

    Yes I followed the instructions. They're very simple. VirtualBox downloaded w/o any issues. The .ova file opens rather than downloading. What do you suggest?

    Did you verify the integrity of the download file using the md5sum checksum ? If so, you might want to post in the VM forum - Oracle VM Server for x86

    Srini, Thanks for trying to help me with this. Still no success downloading the .ova file for the Database App Devemopment VM. Shouldn't the file just download, I don't need to see the inside of it. I'm on a Mac running Mountain Lion. Is that an issue?

    Here's a sample of what I get when I click on the download link: Oracle_DB_Developer_Day.ovf�������������������������������������������������������������������������0000600�0000000�0000000�00000307437�12044005561�0016013�0����������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������ustar �someone�������������������������someone����������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������<?xml version="1.0"?>

    I'm assuming you are trying to download http://download.oracle.com/otn/other/virtualbox/dd/Oracle_Developer_Day.ova using Safari ? If so, try to save the file to your computer first. After the download completes successfully, verify checksums before proceeding.

    So Safari was the problem. I downloaded Firefox to my Mac and was able to copy the .ova file to my computer w/o it opening or doing anything strange. Thank YOU SO MUCH!!!
