When downloading files via the mail reader the file name used to save the file is not correct. The full url is used to save the file instead of the file name itself. The bug first appeared after moz 0.9.6. example url is http://184.108.40.206/test/test.avi file name should be test.avi but appears as http:__220.127.116.11_test_test.avi

Using these steps causes the bug to popup 1 Open an email with links in it 2 Use the rightclick menu to select save as 3 The file name will now contain all of the url instead of only the file name Working is the folowing 1 Open an email with links in it 2 Click the link directly this will ask if the file needs to be saved or opend. 3 Select save 4 The file name will now show up correctly and save correctly I hope this makes the bug hunt easier.
I am not able to reproduce this problem using Mozilla RC1. When doing a RMB on a link inside a message and choose "Save Link Target as...", a save file dialog appears with the correct file name.

Using branch builds 20020522 on winxp, mac and linux this worksforme too. Reporter, right mouse clicking on a link within a message does not give you a Save As...menu item. It gives you a "Save Link Target As"... which works correctly now. If you still see the problem and if your scenario is not about selecting a link in the message body, please update your steps and reopen. Verified.
