Exclamation Pure-FTPd downloading

Im a bit of an ftp newbie, and i am having a prob with my server.
When i connect to my server via internet explorer/firefox, and click on a file in it, it tries to either open that file in another browser window, or tries to navigate to it like a directory. ive tried txt,zip,iso,exe the same thing happens. is there a setting that just allows me to download things, not just replace?
my pure-ftp.conf file:

# Cage in every user in his home directory

# Only connections to this specific IP address are allowed to be

# You can also only allow a non-routable local IP (like 10.x.x.x) to

# If you want to add the PID to every logged line, uncomment the following

#LogPID                     yes

# Create an additional log file with transfers logged in a Apache-like format :

# This log file can then be processed by www traffic analyzers.

# Create an additional log file with transfers logged in a format optimized
# for statistic reports.

# Create an additional log file with transfers logged in the standard W3C
# format (compatible with most commercial log analyzers)

# AltLog                     w3c:/var/log/pureftpd.log

# Disallow the CHMOD command. Users can't change perms of their files.

# Allow users to resume and upload files, but *NOT* to delete them.

# Enable virtual quotas. The first number is the max number of files.

# If your pure-ftpd has been compiled with standalone support, you can change
# the location of the pid file. The default is /var/run/pure-ftpd.pid

#PIDFile                     /var/run/pure-ftpd.pid

# If your pure-ftpd has been compiled with pure-uploadscript support,
# this will make pure-ftpd write info about new uploads to
# /var/run/pure-ftpd.upload.pipe so pure-uploadscript can read it and
# spawn a script to handle the upload.

#CallUploadScript yes

# This option is useful with servers where anonymous upload is 
# allowed. As /var/ftp is in /var, it save some space and protect 
# the log files. When the partition is more that X percent full,
# new uploads are disallowed.

# Set to 'yes' if you don't want your users to rename files.

#NoRename                  yes

# Be 'customer proof' : workaround against common customer mistakes like
# 'chmod 0 public_html', that are valid, but that could cause ignorant
# customers to lock their files, and then keep your technical support busy
# with silly issues. If you're sure all your users have some basic Unix
# knowledge, this feature is useless. If you're a hosting service, enable it.

CustomerProof              yes

# Per-user concurrency limits. It will only work if the FTP server has
# been compiled with --with-peruserlimits (and this is the case on
# most binary distributions) .
# The format is : <max sessions per user>:<max anonymous sessions>
# For instance, 3:20 means that the same authenticated user can have 3 active
# sessions max. And there are 20 anonymous sessions max.

# PerUserLimits            3:20

# When a file is uploaded and there is already a previous version of the file
# with the same name, the old file will neither get removed nor truncated.
# Upload will take place in a temporary file and once the upload is complete,
# the switch to the new version will be atomic. For instance, when a large PHP
# script is being uploaded, the web server will still serve the old version and
# immediatly switch to the new one as soon as the full file will have been
# transfered. This option is incompatible with virtual quotas.

# NoTruncate               yes

# This option can accept three values :
# 0 : disable SSL/TLS encryption layer (default).
# 1 : accept both traditional and encrypted sessions.
# 2 : refuse connections that don't use SSL/TLS security mechanisms,
#     including anonymous sessions.
# Do _not_ uncomment this blindly. Be sure that :
# 1) Your server has been compiled with SSL/TLS support (--with-tls),
# 2) A valid certificate is in place,
# 3) Only compatible clients will log in.

# TLS                      1

# Listen only to IPv4 addresses in standalone mode (ie. disable IPv6)
# By default, both IPv4 and IPv6 are enabled.

# IPV4Only                 yes

# Listen only to IPv6 addresses in standalone mode (ie. disable IPv4)
# By default, both IPv4 and IPv6 are enabled.

# IPV6Only                 yes

# FileSystemCharset	big5
# ClientCharset		big5
Help would be very much appreciated.

PS I had to remove some of the comments in the code to make it fit in the message

Have you tried a real FTP client like SmartFTP or WS_FTP? A browser is not what you want to use for FTP.
