With regard to --

  -- try this.

While in Fetch, check:

Customize->Fetch as FTP Helper-> Make Fetch the Internet Config FTP Helper

And then, you will find that clicking Laurent's link will bring up 
Fetch instead of having the Finder search forever for who knows what.

Also, while it's apparent that one can turn off this feature (Same 
menu items) for IE and Netscape, having it on doesn't affect Safari. 
It looks like a win-win (if I can get it to work for the FB digest).
