Hi guys,

I’m not here to spam but when visiting my latest theme demo, my browser shows a pop-up and asks me to save a ‘application/octet-stream’ file and it seems to link to Vimeo. I don’t have a screenshot as this occurs very, very randomly. I have tried to Google for an answer but I can’t seem to find any mention of it, do you have any idea why this happens? I’m going to take the Vimeo vids off but can anyone of you tell me if you experience the same or see anything strange on my demo? Obviously, I can’t post the link but you can have a look at the latest theme in my portfolio.

I know what it is, Jonathan but the problem is that I’m getting a pop up from the browser (happens with all, randomly) that asks me to open the file as if I have clicked on a download link. This ocurred after loading my theme demo and it seems to be related to Vimeo. Are any of you experiencing any problems on the demo of my latest theme?
