Mass Downloader 3.0.57 SR1 completes the download but is leaving the file with a .mass extension. This has been a problem with the previuos version. When is there going to be a fix?

Rob,

Thank you for writing us.
Could you please tell me the way to reproduce this problem? Is there any special actions you did during the download process?

Best regards,

When i click on a download the firefox dialogue box appears. I select "Download with Mass Downloader" and it downloads. My virus checker then checks it (Eset Nod32). When i go and try to open the downloaded file, i see it has a .mass extension and cannot do anything with it.
This problem was also present in Ver 2.

Regards

Alexander, any progress on this problem? It`s been a month and i`ve all but given up on Mass Downloader giving this problem every 2nd or 3rd download.

Rob,

We plan to release Mass Downloader 3.1 Beta 1 in couple of weeks.
We improved the code working with extension removing. This problem should be fixed.

Sincerely,
Alexander
