a .ma file is a maya ascii file... when you download the .ma file, save it somewhere, open maya, then open the .ma file with maya.

when you download, are you choosing 'open' or 'save as'?

choose save as and pick a place to put it... if text editor is opening it, then your program associations are off... you could be trying to save someone's .rar file and you don't have winRAR installed... *shrug*
