      Description

      The file extension of any unknown mimetype is lost during download, and replaced by .bin.

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. Login to Alfresco Share as a user (admin or non-admin)
      2. Create a public collaboration site
      3. Upload a MS Access database file (*.accdb) to that site
      4. Click on the document name to go to the View Details page then click Download

      Expected Result:
      The *.accdb file ought to be downloaded, keeping the file extension.

      Actual Result:
      The *.accdb file extension is lost and replaced by .bin. See accdb-as-bin.png screenshot.

      Analysis:
      The problem does NOT occur with a Firefox client.
      This seems similar to MNT-11134. I suspect that it happens because *.accdb is an unknown mime type.
