Description

4 years ago
Firefox on Mac OS X 10.6.8.

On the page http://www.opinionatedgeek.com/dotnet/tools/Base64Decode/ I drag-and-drop some text to decode. 
Then I click Decode. 
I get a dialog. 
I want to download the file, so I click OK. 
I get the dialog for choosing the name and the place of the file. 
The name proposed is DecodedBase64.bin. 
I want to overwrite an existing file. So I click the file DecodedBase64-iPad-bleu.bin and I press Return.

* Expected result : * 
The click replaces the proposed name with the name of the clicked file : DecodedBase64-iPad-bleu.bin. Then pressing Return proposes me to overwrite the existing file.

* Actual result : * 
The click replaces the proposed name with DecodedBase64-iPad-bleu. The suffix has been forgotten. Then pressing Return saves a new file DecodedBase64-iPad-bleu. I end up with having my old file and the new file.

It would be nice to fix this bug.

Thank you.

I don't see any dialog with FF37 on Win 7...

It's impossible to reproduce or triage this without knowing what you put in the box to trigger the save as dialog.
