Apparently, if a file begins with enough ASCII characters, Mozilla decides it must be a text file and thus that it *MUST* be a text file. It appends ".txt" to the file name and offers no options other than "text file" as the file type to download. This worries me as I wonder if any end-of-line conversions are being done on a binary file I am trying to download. Mozilla should *always* offer a pure binary download option where it doesn't insist on appending something to the filename! An example URL is given above.
