i put my files in manually but all of a sudden when i download the files from curse forge they are being downloaded as zip files. and not jar files. I can't seem to use these files at all. As they dont seem to contain a jar file (AFAIK) Can someone help me???
Can confirm, all downloads are downloading as zips, even old ones that were previously downloading as jars. You can make them jars by removing the .zip extension and leaving the .jar part (you'll have to enable showing extensions first if you haven't yet). Still weird this just happened all of a sudden, probably a bug of some kind on Curseforge's end
Ok weil I feel better now that it's not just me. However I'm still not completely relieved.
When I use the Chrome browser the files download like normal, as far.
With Firefox that I normally use and have uses for a long time, they are zip. Here's where it gets even more strange. I renamed \Roaming\Mozilla\ folder. Opened Firefox so it created a new fresh Mozilla folder and tried the exact same download and it downloaded fine. So I thought it might be an add-on. So I switched back to my normal Mozilla folder, tried it again still doing zip as "expected." (always good to test the expected bug first again just in case) Tried opening a Private browser and it still did it. I tried to manually remove all of the add-ons, even though I know that Private does that well, and still got a zip.
