From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011012 BuildID: 2001101201 When you click on a link to a file that will be downloaded instead of displayed in the browser (e.g. a link to an RPM), and you try to save it to a directory you don't have permission to write to, it will appear to succeed, but actually fail. Silent failure on download is a critical error (critical = "causes you to lose data") Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: * Click on a link to a file that will not be displayed in the browser (e.g. a link to an RPM) * See "Downloading foo.rpm" dialog box ("Save this file to Disk" selected) * click "OK" * "Enter name of file to save to..." file dialog * Browse to a directory that is visible, but not writeable (e.g. permissions drwxrwxr-x where user is not in group and is not owner) * Click "Save" * File dialog disappears * See "Saving file" dialog * "Progress" bar advances, completes to 100%, everything looks good * but the file has not been saved! Actual Results: File not saved Expected Results: Display appropriate detailed error message, e.g. "The file could not be saved because user alex does not have permission to write to directory /home/alex/bad" Similar to <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30784">30784</a> (but not identical) Note that it looks like you did fix this for the "Save as..." case, but not the instant-download case
