User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.1) Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

I recently downloaded Firefox 3.5 and I have Zone Alarm Extreme Security, so I was trying to download something with a .exe file extension and it said that file type was unknown and the file would be called 1_, I was looking into it and found out that ForceField, a program that comes with Zone Alarm Extreme Security wasn't supported with Firefox 3.5, check this screen shot.

You can go to www.zonealarm.com and search their forums and there's quite a few threads about firefox 3.5 not working with Zone Alarm's ForceField. People say Zone Alarm is working on an update for ForceField but they don't know how long it will take, until then, people with ForceField either need to turn it off or go back to 3.0.11. I am just letting people know so that they won't be confused like I was for a while. ALSO, if you save the file instead of run it, and put .exe at the end, it will work but nobody want's to do that everytime they download something right?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have ForceField from Zone Alarm
2. Have Firefox 3.5 or higher
3. Try to download something
Actual Results:  
It says the file type is Unknown and won't run.

Expected Results:  
It should have said the file type is Application and should run just fine.

It doesn't matter what kind of Addons you have it just matters if you have ForceField and Firefox 3.5 or up.
