    I must confess I am not too familiar with WWW::Selenium.

    If there is no way to gain control over the dialog window, you seem out of luck.

    Perhaps then a different approach would be to have another routine save the file you want by analyzing the page html? Perhaps also looking at WWW::Mechanize would be an option.

    Good luck!

      Well, the presence of javascripts makes life difficult when using WWW::Mechanize. That is why I am looking into WWW::Selenium now.. Anyways, thanks.. :)
