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. thanks
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?
Build: 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"; \ # x11-bitmap="/usr/lib/Zmail/bitmaps/wingz.xbm"
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?
worksforme linux trunk 2002040422 no response from reporter in 4 months -> marking worksforme reporter, if you are still seeing this with a recent nightly or 0.9.9 please reopen this bug
