I have been trying to download the latest version of the Opera web browser 10.10 but i have received this message:

/tmp/opera_10.10.47/42.gcc4.qt3_i386.deb could not be opened, because the associated helper application does not exist. Change the association in your preferences.

Also, i have configured Firefox 3.5 to save all files/downloads to the "Downloads" folder and yet anything i do download goes into the /tmp folder?

Hope someone will be able to help me with the above problems. Thanks in advance
