This is a known problem with Internet Explorer (unrelated to this 
specific extension): at times, IE tries to be smart and "fixes" the 
filename extension into ZIP rather than OXT as you correctly observed. I 
don't have more precise information, but this has happened for years and 
the common advice given on lists is "use another browser" (obviously, 
capable users can rename the file as OXT).
