For the time being I'd recomend using a batch rename file if the .aspx extension is the problem. Namechanger 2 works well for the mac and I believe it is free. If it is just a problem of java web start not starting when you download the file you just need to tell the computer to associate that file type with java web start on the mac. I believe there is a Firefox plugin to ultimately correct this and I am looking into it.
