Simpy downloading a virus should not pose any real threat until it is executed.That goes without saying that it doesn't matter if it is an executable or any other file format.If it is a different file format again as long as you have only downloaded it shouldn't pose any threat.That is of course assuming the browser download function isn't vulnerable in some way.
