Opening the website with Firefox does look like a text document. However, if you right click, [Save Page As...], events-August-2015.csv (all files (*.*), and open it with a program such as Excel, it will show up correctly

Thank you for your speedy response. Never needed to do this before but will in the future.

The server sends the file as text/plain and that makes Firefox open the file in a tab. If there is a link on a page for this file then use "Save Link As" in the right-click context menu instead of left-clicking the link. Otherwise you can always use "Save Page As" in the right-click context menu to save the file.

This is a problem with the server configuration that doesn't send the file with the correct content type.
