Firefox automatically downloads unwanted files

I opened a website and downloaded a brochure to my desktop that was supposed to be a pdf file. However, it downloaded as a pdf.part file and I was not able to open the .part extension, so I then placed both files into the trash and emptied the trash. Now, those two files automatically download every time that I open Firefox. I then uninstalled my Firefox application, ran Disk Utility to repair disk permissions, repaired the disk with my OS 10.6 CD, ran MacKeeper several times, rebooted the computer and then installed Firefox from the Firefox website. I ran Disk Utility and MacKeeper several times, trashed Firefox several times and installed it from the Firefox website.

The two files still automatically download every time that I open Firefox. It seems that the website or those two files contaminated Firefox, even after it has been trashed and installed as a new application.

I would appreciate any ideas that may resolve this issue.

You can try to repair the files and remove the trailing .part to see if that gives a working PDF file.

If you have security (anti-virus) software then check the settings and make sure that they do not interfere with downloading.

Thanks but I resolved the issue prior to your response. I opened Tools / Downloads and saw that both files were again being downloaded, so I stopped the process and wiped the Downloads file clean. That seems to have resolved the issue.
