One or more of my banking websites, when downloading historical statements, creates a download file WITHOUT A FILE EXTENSION NAME. The file is actually a PDF and works fine if I append the name with ".pdf".

What can I do to have the file created with a valid extension?

It is possible that the server isn't sending the file name correctly.

Does the file name contain one or more space characters?

You can check the HTTP response headers with the Live Http Headers extension to se how the server sends this file.

I added the Live Http Headers to FireFox, but I'm not sure how to invoke it. In any case, the problem is with a download rather than a display page. I tried it in "Edge" (Windows 10 replacement for IE) and could see the URL which does NOT have ".pdf" as part of the filename, but Edge DOES bring up the document to view as a pdf file.

I suspect I'm stuck with having to append ".pdf" to each financial statement after downloading.
