I was researching an issue I had with a VB6 app I am making, found some good examples but the zip files downloaded were 0 bytes, first I thought it was the site made an error but later on I noticed a colored dot on the download progress button, opening downloads it says "This file contains a virus or malware" , but thankfully there is a button "Open" which opens a windows file dialog, this "Open" action has changed the file in my downloads folder to the file is now 3273 bytes .

( The files in the zip are VB6 project files & are 100% NOT A VIRUS or MW ! , the files only run in the VB6 IDE)  

If FF suspects a virus isn't "open" a bit silly ? (or is it so I can look at the files to inspect?) I appreciate the vigilance of virus filtering but would not a popup be better with appropriate message & my input to accept download, (this is how the bad sites visit warning behaves) I was just about to shutdown when I noticed the "colored flag".
