1. Go to: http://java.sun.com/products/javabeans/glasgow/jaf.html#download 2. Click Download 3. Choose an ftp site (you may have to reload the page to remedy a page-caching glitch) 4. After the file has downloaded Doulble click it's icon (note: another bug garbles the filename to something unique, like fv25gs55h0) Results I had: Mixed. All but one time, I got to step 4 and had an empty folder. The one time this didn't happen, I got NO folder. Stuffit Expander showed that the files were being extracted in it's dialog status. I have tried this twice with each of the following urls: http://java.sun.com/products/javamail/index.html http://java.sun.com/products/javabeans/glasgow/jaf.html#download All four attempts failed. I successfully downloaded the files in IE5.01b
Works for me with 2001-11-18-08 under Windows 2000, and no garbled filename. The downloaded file opens fine in WinZip. What build are you using (please always state this in your reports)? Have you tried a recent nightly build from: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/
Summary: Downloaded file does not unzip properly → Downloaded file does not unzip properly
Moz 0.9.5; Build ID 2001101516 OS: Mac OS 10.04 There are errors related to downloading JAF that are not Mozilla's fault (not a bug). Additionally, I found an error with the folder that Stuffit Expander extracted from the JAF zipfile. The folder containing JAF that was unzipped was hidden (even in IE, even in Opera). This had to do with the folder name being recognized by OS 10 as a type that should be hidden, and has nothing to do with the browser. The problem downloading JavaMail I still consider a bug. Also, we don't have winzip for the mac.
Please try with a newer build - downloading Javamail works fine in Windows and Linux for me with today's nightly build. The downloaded file opens fine in WinZip and the command line unzip under Linux.
i see this using 2001.11.19.08-comm bits on mac os 10.1. whether i download the file and then expanded it later with Stuffit Expander, or have the helper app dialog open it up directly, Stuffit Expander goes thru the motions of decompressing the files, but i cannot find those files. [eg, a Sherlock search for files containing "JAF" in their name turned up nothing.] methinks this issue is specific to mac os x, so over to pink for triage.

Ever confirmed: true
Hi, under additional comment #2 by Garrett Smith (that's me): "The folder containing JAF that was unzipped was hidden (even in IE, even in Opera)" The JAF unzipped folder is hidden because it is named ".1" and anything beginning with a "." is hidden. The folder can be seen in OS9. Regarding JavaMail, I don't know what to make of it. I hope I'm not wasting your time! Summary: JAF ...........Sun's fault or Stuffit's fault (not sure) JavaMail ......Problem only in Mozilla on my build.
I downloaded http://java.sun.com/products/javamail/index.html just fine. it unzipped correctly and the files are there. the other url is a bad stuffit archive. not our problem.

Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
I found the file using OS9. I resolved this problem long ago, and from what I remember, it was a problem with the folder name beginning with .1 or something like that. It was really odd and confusing me for a while. I don't have a clear recollection of the exact details of the problem. Anyway, the problem was not with Mozilla. Garrett
