At various times in the past, Mozilla has had problems automatically uncompressing files without telling you. For example, a .tar.gz file will be gunzipped, but will still keep the .tar.gz filename. These are usually easy to work around if you know to expect them. You can search Bugzilla for words like "download" and "corrupt" to find other bugs that might be causing this.

If your download corruption doesn't match any of the bugs already filed, shut down Mozilla, get the latest nightly, create a new profile, and try again. If you can still reproduce the corruption, file a bug in bugzilla.

It sounds like a lot of work, but it will only take about half an hour, and in the end you'll either understand your problem, or else you'll be helping get an important bug fixed.

Good luck!
