    I wish I could solve your issue, but I also use Dolphin mostly. It's great because of so many more features, quickness, and you can even download youtube videos just by long pressing on them. Niceness...

    I think that if you download an app that will handle the files--like a powerpoint viewer for example--that app can register with the OS that it handles certain kinds of files. Then, when you use the browser it'll open the viewer app.

    The stock browser designers probably wanted to save verizon some bandwidth by disabling downloading of unsupported files. This approach is also simpler for users...try to click a WMV and you are told no. How simple for the user!
