.bin at end of Archive files!!!

Does anyone know how to get the OS to stop appending .bin to the end of archive files when I download them?? Very annoying......TIA! :)

Yes, correct, I use Firefox. It usually happens when I try to download .rar or .zip files, especially some study materials from net130.com (chinese technical references website). TIA :)

here's a couple:

http://www.net130.com/book/cisco/PPT/ONT10_PPTs.rar
http://www.net130.com/attestation/ccip/ ... s4sure.rar


Also, bear in mind that you obviously don't have to actually finish dl'g them - even if you just allow the d/l to start you will see the ".bin" being appended to the file...or at least for whatever reason it's doing it for me ;) Of course when I use W1nB10w$ this doesn't happen, but who in their right mind would want to do that?!?! ;)

This seems to happen whenever I try to download items from Rapidshare links. Any thoughts?

Yo dude,

In Firefox, look under Edit>Preferences, and then under the Content tab. Under the "File Types" section, click "Manage". Anything look suspicious there?

Nope...nothing out of the ordinary...what should I be looking for? There's *no* handling default preference for .zip, .rar, or .bin. That still doesn't account for the strange behavior though...did you try any rapidshare dl's for yourself to see this?

I did actually try dling one of those links, but I didn't finish either of the files, and they didn't show up on my desktop... While I was downloading them, they looked normal, IE they didn't have .bin appended to them. Perhaps you should associate them with some kind of program so Firefox won't get confused?
