From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020722
BuildID:    2002072204

I have noticed that in mozilla 1.0 and above I can't download *some* files using
ftp of the form ftp://username@host. I can login to ftp server, browse but can't
download files with some extensions (ie 'file.jpg' = failure, but *the same*
'file' = succes and also 'file.exe' = succes). I have tried this on solaris ftp
server and proftp on debian.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Login to ftp server
2.Click on file with extension (for example file.jpg)
3.(Picture displays in mozilla window) Choosing (RMB) Save image as...
4.Mozilla asks a password (why?)! I have been already logged in.
5.Entering password
6.Dialog window opens to save my file somewhere... Choosing ok
7.Opens download status window... and quickly closes
8.No file on my local hdd

Well,  Generally shift + LMB does not work at all either. Anyway I can download
but only under one condition: there must appear one window: after clicking on a
file there must appear window which asks: open using something... or save this
file to disk. Than the file is really copied to my local hdd.

Maybe something with mime is wrong?

Confirming on Linux (Mozilla 1.1b, build id 2002072204).

You can use almost any public ftp server with a username of "anonymous" or
"ftp", and a random password to see this. It seems that I am even unable to
save any files, regardless of extension.
Ever confirmed: true
