There are cases, such as sometimes, someone will download an NVDA extension and for some reason, using one browser, the extension will be changed to zip, rather than what it should be. I don't know why, but it does happen. Someone else may know. In such a case, changing the extension to what it should be solves the problem and, evidently, using another browser does, too.

and, as David said, it is not a good idea to use Internet Explorer as a main browser now. Its archaic. It continues to receive security updates, but the actuall browser hasn't been updated in years and will work with fewer and fewer sites. Changing to a different browser is not difficult. Most of what you will do will be identical or almost so. Working with settings and bookmarks may be somewhat different, but if you are using a browser that supports browse mode, browsing will be either identical or almost identical. Some pages may present a little differently, but most won't or will be almost the same. Evidently, Facebook presents itself quite differently and Internet Explorer appears still to be the best browser to use with it but that is a rare exception. I don't know about sites like M.Facebook.

well, I got the file using google chrome and it came out as usual, I was using internet explorer before and some how the file extention was changed by the server.
Larry, when you say that the file came out "as usual" when you used Google Chrome I don't know what it is you are trying to say. Are you saying that the file downloaded properly with the proper name when you used Google Chrome? Also, I don't think that Internet Explorer would be able to change the title of the file on the server. However, that being said I don't recommend using Internet Explorer as a Web browser. Many of today's Web sites are using technologies which Internet Explorer doesn't support. Using Google Chrome is a good choice as it's a modern browser which is fast and will be able to supp;ort any Web site you decide to visit. As time goes by you're going to find that more and more Web sites will no longer work with Internet Explorer the way they used to. Microsoft is no longer adding features and new capabilities to that browser but Chrome should serve you well. While I personally don't care for Firefox that browser does work very nicely with NVDA and you could certainly try that one, as well.
