    I have upgraded to version 1.5. Since doing so my ".jpg" file
    downloads have an additional extension of ".jpe" added to them. The
    result is something like "waterwheel.jpg.jpe". How do I get it to
    stop adding the extra extension? The file opens OK but the filename
    is obviously different from previous downloads, creating the potential
    for duplications. My previous version of Mozilla did not do this.

  2. I read that changing the "Extension" value in this key (from .jpeg to .jpg)

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MIME\Database\Content Type\image/jpeg

    I haven't had much time to test it but apparently works for me.

    Edit - Preferences - Navigator - Helper Applications. See if there is a
    listing for jpe file type and delete it. Also look for jpg file type
    and delete it.

    I went to that location and deleted everything related to .jpg, .jpe.
    and even .jpeg. Nothing worked -- it still does it.

    Try setting the file types at the OS level.

    Nothing I tried resolved the problem so I restored windows to the day
    before I installed 1.5 and reinstalled the prior version. The problem
    is gone. This is obviously a bug with 1.5.
