Solution

You are using a left-outer join, so the browser extension name for records that don't hit the filename will be blank.

@shoando ok thanks for feedback !

fullouter get it, but seems he takes now not the other double,

is suggest to somehow to remove the hyphen minus and than search on it

or is there a better alternative then full outer
