Quicktime save disabled in Safari 4?

I upgraded Safari to the version 4 beta and I looks like the little triangle at the end of the quicktime play bar is missing (which allows you to save qt files if you have QT Pro). What gives? There are ways around this (even if you don't have pro) and its still there in Firefox, but where did it go in the Safari 4 Beta?

Here is a link to an mp3 of me saying "caiparinhas.mp3" so you can test it yourself (it was from an old post about how to pronounce the word):

caiparinhas.mp3

EDIT: This post previously referred to it as the Safari 3 Beta, its actually 4, I skipped over 3.

I'm having the same problem. This is a bad feature.

Its mostly annoying. There are some ways around it. If you use a different browser like Firefox, you can save. Also, if you know a little html or the file already has an html link going to it, you can right click on that and save. But still, its annoying, and its a feature we paid for.

Apple has blocked this thread from their website, but Google still has it cached

But still no answer to this problem other than using Firefox.
