From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020417
BuildID:    2002041711

I have a private Bugzilla 2.14.1 that stopped working in 1.0RC1 because I
modified the Bugzilla scripts to return "Content-Type: text/html;
charset=ISO-8859-1" instead of "Content-Type: text/html". Sending the charset
parameter from my Bugzilla scripts worked fine in 0.9.9 and previous milestones.

With Mozilla 1.0RC1, attempting a query produces two download dialogs:
"Downloading bugzilla_bug_list.html" and "Downloading buglist.cgi". Each
download dialog says "You have chosen to download a file of type:
text/html;charset=iso-8859-1 from ..."

The problem seems to occur only with multipart/x-mixed-replace. I am able to
bring up individual bug reports, which unlike the query do not use

Editing the Bugzilla scripts to remove the charset parameter from the
Content-Type header allows me to view queries properly.

The following URL demonstrates the problem:


Mozilla 1.0RC1 wants to download this, which it shouldn't. Source for the CGI
script is here:


If I omit the charset parameter from the Content-Type header, Mozilla 1.0RC1
displays the page:


Source for that script is here:


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. View http://htmlhelp.com/test/mozilla/mixed-replace-with-charset.cgi

Actual Results:  Mozilla 1.0RC1 offered two download dialogs to download the
content of type "text/html;charset=iso-8859-1".

Expected Results:  Mozilla should have displayed the content as it does if the
charset parameter of the Content-Type header is omitted.

Confirmed with a Linux CVS trunk build from yesterday.
Ever confirmed: true
To darin.  Sounds like fallout from the nsIChannel freeze...  (though the code
_looks_ ok from here).

I take that back.  It doesn't look OK after all... :)
bbaetz, darin, would you review?  The first hunk in the patch is the real fix
(changes BeginReading to EndReading so that we actually do the right thing). 
The other two hunks do a bit of cleanup in nsMultiMixedConv -- there's no need
for the decoder to store the type and charset separately, and this avoids
calling NS_ParseContentType() twice for every part of the multipart stream....

The first hunk should land on the 1.0 branch; the other two don't really have
to, imo.

And this affects all channels, not just multipart ones.  So thanks for catching
this, liam@htmlhelp.com (and thanks for the excellent testcase!).
