Unfortuantely this page is restricted, so you won't be able to log in.  It's
part of Wachovia's account download, we it uses a script to send you an .ofx
file (XML file MS Money uses to import account information).  When IE opens
this, it asks you to save or open filename.ofx (which has a WindowsXP file
association).  When Mozilla opens it, filename.ofx.cgi is given (same file, same
XML, no wrapper akaik).  If I save the file and delete the .cgi at the end, I am
them able to do my import.
That's a workaround though.  What we want is to be able to drop the .cgi during
this download process.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the download link in Wachovia (a js just gives you the ofx file)
2. It has .cgi appended to it.


Actual Results:  
The .cgi file was given (not the actual file, but the normal .ofx file with a
.cgi extention appended to it)

Expected Results:  
Dropped the .cgi and given me simply filename.ofx

I'm a bit out of my depth here, but i can think of two possible causes.

1) the server is configured to serve it as cgi and adds it that way. In that
case it might be that IE [in conflict with standards!] overrides the file type
and determines it as .ofx whereas Mozilla does what the server tells it to.

2) you may have a wrong entry in your HELPER APPLICATIONS part of the NAVIGATOR
preferences. Check for entries with ofx or cgi.

Third possible cause is that indeed there IS something wrong ;)
The third possible cause is the extension-fixup code in Windows versions of
Mozilla.  Please find the relevant bug and mark this duplicate.
