Hi,
Using F9 Beta (all updates applied) - Today I created a data disc of some stuff i've downloaded.
Some of the files have no file-extension but on the cd they have .html extensions, all other files that do have an extension are ok. Anyone else had this happen?

Correction - F9 has added the file extensions not brasero. Still in the dark as to why.

Not clear that this is a problem: is the .html file extension inappropriate for the files in question?

Hi,
The files in question are pure binary, and now that I've removed the extensions manually that's what Fedora thinks they are. I got the files via FTP (Firefox 3 beta 5) do you think this might be the cause?

Anything's possible IMO with beta software, only important thing is it's perfectly clear now that this is an error, not a surprise new feature.
