Sorry I cannot find the correct category for this issue with 

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/os/2.5/

When I hover over the "get the Android App" link it show https://d2yw7jilxa8093.cloudfront.net/B2GDroid-mozilla-central-nightly-latest.apk

but when I download I get 

B2GDroid-mozilla-central-nightly-latest.zip

Which is no use.

I'm downloading on my desktop Windows 10 using Edge ready to sideload.

I did look for an apk in the zip but it appears to be source.

Thanks for the report, that's really strange.  

I've reported upstream:

Great. Ialso reported using the in Edge feedback feature. U wondered if related to mime types?

Ah, I should've searched first - I've spent ages sorting dups today :p..

Maybe, if Edge is trying to determine what the type of the file is using some magic as 'octet-stream' isn't that helpful.  Really, it should just see the file extension and be happy with saving it as is.
