OK. Understand now. The .do (in your case) is a javascript web
extension. For example:

I do not have Dish Network, however as you can see from the above I have
AT&T. When reviewing the bill online, I have two options: 1) download
the bill in PDF format, 2) print the bill (pay the bill is never a good
option in my case :-). I typically elect to download the PDF, but if I
print I print directly to a PDF using the cups-pdf printer (you can do
the same without cups-pdf by printing to 'Print to File|Output format
PDF'). The result should be sufficient & clear. If it's not, then I
would check your browser.
