every time I click on a download link(a program, gzip file or anything),
mozilla ask me where to save, BUT no matter what place I enter,
mozilla always saves it to /tmp/foo, where foo is a strange name, such as fn7l3d.gz
Everytime, I have to click the right button the link and choose "Save link
as....", then mozilla could download correctly
It is really anonnying.
Pleae fix it ASAP.
dupe of bug 69938 ?
Do you just get a filepicker right after clicking on the link?  Or do you get a 
dialog asking you whether to save the file or to open it with a helper?

What build are you using?

Does this affect _all_ files or just gzip files specifically?

What does 'grep gz /etc/mailcap' return?

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011013

It affects all files!

result of grep gz /etc/mailcap:
#application/x-wingz; Wingz %s; compose=Wingz %s; \
description="Wingz document"; \
Leu, 0.9.5 is quite old.  There is a good chance that this is alredy fixed.  
Please try 0.9.7?

Oh yes. I do should try the new one.
But, Do I have to download again this 12mb's huge stuff??!!
Where can I find a patch?
By the way, My name is "Lei" NOT "Leu". :D
Lei, if you have a source tarball you can just update via CVS... But that will 
take longer than downloading a new binary build by far.  There are no patches 
available unless you can find someone to just make one for you.  It will, 
however, require a functioning 0.9.5 tree (a rather large download itself).  
(And the name thing was a typo on my part).

Updating summary.  This must be due to an error when moving the file to the
chosen destination from the temporary download location.
Summary: severe Download problem!!! → files downloaded to temp location but never moved
Lei, could you try a 0.9.8 build and see whether this is still a problem?
