nsXPInstallManager::GetDestinationFile() returns invalid filenames when a chrome
install is triggered from a url with a query string.  

The fix for the non chrome case is to simply default the destination file to
tmp.xpi.  In the case of chrome we'd like to have a meaningful filename because
it stays around when the install is completed.  This means finding the ? in the
string and truncating after that point.  We'll have to worry about unicode and
mulitbyte problems (we don't want to find the ? in the second btye)

see 130428 for the non-chrome case

Since this bug hasn't been updated in over 4 years, I just thought I'd mention where the flood of CC's is coming from and that it definitely still exists. We ran into this problem on AMO today (bug 351511). We previously used "approvalfile.php/extension.xpi" as the download and InstallTrigger path for the addon approval queue. We attempted to change this to "approvalfile.php?file=extension.xpi", and this worked fine for the extensions, but themes wouldn't install from it and only on Windows.

I finally found this bug that described our exact problem and we'll be reverting back to the slash format.
