From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020724 BuildID: 2002072422 When I save a PDF file by holding shift while left-clicking on the link to file, the filename has an extra "..pdf" appended. If I just left-click and select "Save this file to disk", then the file name is correct. This only seems to happen with files that have an extension of ".pdf". I've also confirmed that this happens even if the file isn't actually a PDF file (for example, if a plain text file has an extension of .pdf). I've tried this test with other links to files with other extensions, such as .tar.gz and .xpm files, and they have the correct file name. The workaround for this problem is to delete the extra "..pdf", or to not hold the shift key down when left-clicking and select "Save this file to disk". Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Find a page with a link to a PDF file. 2. Hold the shift key and left-click on the link. 3. "Save As" dialog pops up with incorrect file name. Actual Results: "Save As" dialog has the wrong file name. For the URL listed above, the file name is "test.pdf..pdf". Expected Results: File name should be "test.pdf".

This bug was closed as a dup of bug 120327, and that bug "is fixed, and it is now dead. Do not reopen." However, the problem with PDF files persists on Mozilla for Solaris. I am using the latest daily build, and I can reproduce it using the URL listed in the bug header. This problem no longer happens with Mozilla on Linux, so I'm not sure why it persists with Solaris.
Using build id 20030212 on solaris 8/sparc. When I shift-leftclick on the PDF link, mozilla offers to save the file as "test.pdf". I click OK and the file is saved under that name. Rich, could you try this with a current version of mozilla and see if you can reproduce the behavior you describe?
I tracked the problem down to a defective mimeTypes.rdf in my ~/.mozilla directory. I removed the file and the problem went away. I'm not sure when the PDF entry was added to the file, since I didn't do it myself... Sorry for the trouble.
Resolving. Thanks for the update, Rich!
