This is a function of the browser unzipping the file as it is downloaded and processed.


The browser or the desktop O/S was unzipping the file as it was saved to disk. Safari unzips files by default as they are downloaded.  This can be disabled in the System Preferences for Safari.  Select the General icon and scroll down to "Open safe files after downloading" and uncheck the box.
