Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a8pre) Gecko/2007081305 Minefield/3.0a8pre ID:2007081305 Currently when download a zip file from http://hourly-archive.localgho.st/ the file gets downloaded to the directory of my choice, but using the full filename, eg: 20070813_1419_firefox-3.0a8pre.en-US.win32.zip This is bad enough because anyone watching their download dir will see what looks like a usable file and perhaps try and run/move the file. But further, when we have cross-session resumable downloads, then i guess any files we are downloading when we quit firefox will also have a normal looking filename with a normal extension. In this case, anyone trying to run the file will get an error, and it will be hard to differentiate between files that are genuinely completed, and those which are still in the middle of being downloaded. So I really think we need to add a file-extension on the end of all currently-being-downloaded files, like .part or .!fx or some such.
