How to make file extensions save on a Mac.
When downloading a .xls file from a customers web site Fire fox knows it should be opened with OpenOffice. If I chose the open with option OpenOffice opens a Black work book.
If I chose the Save file option the file is saved in my Downloads folder. But Firefox fails to save the file with the file extension (.xls)
If I rename the file and add the .xls the file will open with OpenOfice so the Files are not corrupt!
how can I make Firefox save the files with the proper file extensions?
Thanks in advance dak
