I have found many links to iPhone3,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw
but they all download zip files that do not contain a ipsw file.
What am I missing?

If after unblocking it still does not give you the file the try extracting through winzip or use test/repair archive feature of win zip or win rar . It should give you some kind of error i.e. crc error or something when you extract it.

or try changing the source...

Since it leads to piracy, cant share the source....

There is a common issue of downloading .ipsw with certain settings in an internet browser which appear as a .zip.  This has to do with your system trusting the file.  and .ipsw file is after all zip up files.

does the file downloaded end with .ipsw.zip? If yes then just rename it.

Otherwise are you using firefox? It should download it properly.

if it fails with firefox - then my answer to your question is that you are not getting this file from a trusted source and as such it is not an .ipsw file anyway.
