The Club Photo provides full resolution image downloads.  You should be able to
click on a thumbnail, then on "view full image" and then right click to bring up
the download option.  Doing so brings up the image, but downloading results in a
suffix of .PL instead of .JPG.  The process works with IE and with Opera, but
not with any recent version of Mozilla including nightly builds.

You can rename the downloaded file from xxx.PL to xxx.JPG and it will open and
be viewed correctly as an image.  But this should not be necessary as the file
should be saved as .JPG

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a photo album on Club Photo.
2. Click on the thumbnail and then on the "view full image."
3. Right click on the full image to get the download option.
4. Download it and it appears as xxx.PL

Actual Results:  
Downloaded file is complete, but suffix is .PL instead of .JPG

Expected Results:  
The file should be in .JPG format

Downloading the thumbnail or slightly enlarged image all work fine and show up
in JPG format.  I don't know of any other site that allows full image downloads,
so I don't know if the problem is limited to this site, but since two other
browsers seem to work I think it is an issue with Mozilla.

Can't really troubleshoot this as guests don't have the "view full image option.  

In any event, this is a file-handling or networking issue.  Guessing
file-handling for the moment.
