FWIW, this is a red herring to the original thread. I recently upgraded the host to Firefox-24.0 and it seems to store all downloaded files with permission 600.
I guess the Firefox folks reason that the file should be rw only by the owner and then the owner can set whatever permissions are appropriate. wget stores them according to the umask set.
