Downloads with fullstop are wrong extension format

Veröffentlicht

Hello,

If I download a file that has name that includes a fullstop, everything after the fullstop is treated as the file extension and the real file extension is discarded. E.G. a file named "boxes.18-10-18.csv" downloads as "boxes.18-10-18" with the file extension of .18-10-18 which obviously isn't a file extension. How can I get Firefox to treat the "." in the file name as part of the name, rather than the start of the file extension?

Thanks,

Harrison

Sorry not sure what you mean? I didn't create the file that I'm downloading.

Hi WestEnd, I think it's British for "period".

Hi Harrison, does it help at all if you set Windows to show all file extensions instead of showing only some of them?
