Hello,

I have a platform where architects can download digital content in the file formats of dwg (autocad) and ai (adobe illustrator). The site is old and has been working for many years.

Today I received an email from a user that had issues downloading the ai files. I went on to the site an investigated. I am also unable to download the ai files. The dwgs are working as expected.

The ai files are converted to pdf and open in the browser in some web preview. If I then download the file from there it is still, when downloaded to my machine, a pdf. This is not the behavior from before. This is a change in Firefox.

How, when, and why is this change implemented? It seems like a pretty radical change, to coerce one file format to another without any option to get the source file for the user.

Any help is appreciated.
