    i've been using firefox for at least a year now, and i'm loving it. Since
    a couple of month, i've switched to Linux (now using Fedora Core 3), and
    i'm experiencing a strange behaviour:
    when i download something (using the standard download manager), it
    (i.e. firefox or fedora) produces a file with an additional extension.
    Downloading an mp3 file will result in a file called "*.mp3.mp3" an rpm
    will be called "*.rpm.rpm" and so on and so forth.
    What is happening? What am i doing wrong and how can i get rid of it?
    thanks in advance!
