I think you've done everything correctly.  The problem was to do with 
Internet Explorer which have have fixed in the last 20 minutes so try 
again.  You may not even need to right-click this time as just submitting 
should prompt you to open or save the file.  Choose save.

The reason it didn't work before is because Internet Explorer doesn't 
handle file headers properly and when you copy and pasted the lines 
wrapped and confused the Loadstone GPS import routine.  We need to make 
the importer more robust so the "App close"  (a crash) doesn't happen!
