Why does firefox convert files sent by e mail to zip files

I have had to replace several computers lately, when I restarted loading software onto them, I encountered a problem. I receive e mails with files attached which are Corel Draw files. When I download them they come out as zip files and create a lot of files on the drive which make no sense and have stuff in the files that don't do anything. I reverted over to a different browser that being Microsoft Edge which I don't like but it downloads the file perfectly with no problems.......I have been a fan of Firefox for many years but recently there have been so many changes and up dates that things have been starting to change way to much.... I did go to the list of things to check and did not find anything relating to this problem.

Convert files? Perhaps only the file extension has been changed (what is a known bug in 84). It should be fixed in version 85. Thanks.
