+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #280419 +++ User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040910 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040910 When a download is requested and the user clicks 'Open' the file is saved in the temporary folder. For word documents this allows users to edit and save the file back to disk. When mozilla closes it will delete the temporary file, loosing the changes. The file should be marked readonly so the user can't change the file. This is a particular problem with webmail. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open a word document from the web by clicking the 'Open' button on the download prompt. 2.Edit the document and select 'Save' from the 'File' menu in word. 3.Exit word. 4.Exit mozilla. Actual Results: The file was deleted including the changes. Expected Results: The temporary file should have been saved as readonly - so the user could not modify the file. Ideally this would be done by removing the write permissions for the file. --- This was originally fixed in bug 280419, but has apparently regressed. I would guess in the Downloads.jsm work since I see this in ff31, but not thunderbird31 (which still use the old code)
