On many occasions, downloaded files are given the .PDF extension. This happens always when I try to download nightly mozilla builds, but also when I'm trying to open an Excel (.XLS) Email attachment. The attachment is clearly not PDF (nor is the nightly mozilla build): Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name="BETEIL~1.XLS" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 Content-Disposition: inline; filename="BETEIL~1.XLS" Content-MD5: t/SZY5LFqNtF6J4gfVsn/g== Mozilla then tries to launch the Acrobat reader rather than my Excel viewer, which of course creates garbage on screen. I haven't seen this in releases prior to 1.1alpha. Is there a place where mozilla stores what it believes to be a likely file type fpr the next download, or something like that?
Reporter, Can you look into Edit->Preferences->navigator->Helper Applications. You probably have Acrobat set to handle application/octet-stream. If this is teh cae then this bug is a dupe of bug 120327
IS a dupe of bug 120327, Content-Type: application/octet-stream is the give-away
marking as such. reporter: please reopen if you disagree. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 120327 ***
