Internet browsers can have settings that give an option as to what happens
when you click on the music: it can give an option to play the music or
download it automatically. It also can be set so you have a choice as to
whether you wish it to be downloaded or listened to. Check your browser
You also might try which finger is used to click on the file, the left
frequently going straight to playing the music and the right giving an option
to save the recording to disk.
