Works for me when using e.g. file.txt, elaborate please


I would really like to, but how? To me, if i select "Text file" i'm told that "The required extension is .meta4", and in fact the file content is "<metalink xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:metalink" version="4.0" a0:version="3.0.8"". Every time, no exceptions.

oh right, OSX. Try using "Keep .txt" when it prompts as a workaround until I find a proper solution later

I already tried selecting "Keep both", but 1) the file is named ".Txt.meta4" and 2) the content is XML: "<metalink xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:metalink" version="4.0" a0:version="3.0.8"".


Does this still happen with the most recent Cyberfox (51 as of now)?

Don't know why but i only received the comment quoted above by Nils Maier via e-mail, it doesn't show here. Anyways: yes, the issue still happens

Sorry for the confusion, posted my comment in the wrong issue, and subsequently deleted it
