I do not know it for sure, but I seem to remember, that you can use 
a file on your server to prevent people from downloading stuff from 
your site ... ;) But if you think, it is a configuration problem on 
my side, I will have a look at my browser's configuration to find 
out, if anything is blocking TDF's BZ ... ;)
Thanks for your info and have a nice evening
