Since some files are created on the fly, it looks like Firefox doesn't know that the download is finished, so it names it blahblah.pls.part [for instance], which prevents it from being opened [in this case by iTunes; as it is a pls file]. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Unknown. Actual Results: Downloaded file is appended with .part even though it's a completed download. Expected Results: Not append the file with .part Most easily replicated by installing the http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/1820 userscript which generates an m3u playlist from .mp3 links on a web page and is then opened in your media player.
