From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; AIX 0001B53F4C00; en-US; rv:1.1a) Gecko/20020612 BuildID: 2002072311 Save/Save As simply will not save any file. This is version 1.1 beta for AIX. Version 1.1 alpha works. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Try to download a file, ftp or http 2. 3. Actual Results: When I click on a link to download (or use "save as"), the dialogue box says "Downloading <tmpfile> ..." in the title bar. The dialogue reads <tmpfile> could not be saved because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator." Note that <tmpfile> varies and is the name of the tmpfile in my $TMP directory, not the actual name of the file on the server. Expected Results: I expect the file to be saved. Typically the title bar has the name of the actual file on the server. I do notice that there is no libnullplugin.so in the mozilla/plugins directory in the 1.1 beta version. The behaviour is the same whether I leave it as is, or add the libnullplugin.so to that location from the 1.1 alpha build. This is on an RS6000.
any permission problems about the tmp-folder? tried a fresh profile?
I tried a fresh profile ... no change. Also, I own the tmpdir and the tmpfile is created, however it has 0 bytes while the dialogue box is still up (and deleted after the box is dismissed). However, one development. If I click on the link to download again (in this case immediately, which may or not matter), another tmpfile is downloaded, but no dialogue box pops up asking where to save the file and the file is not copied, but remains in the tmpfolder with its temporary name.
-> file handling, aix qawanted I have not seen similar reports in Networking in the time frame of your build date. Possibly AIX only?
This problem exists on Windows as well, but I cannot reproduce it under Linux.
As of the version 1.2 series (currently 1.2.1), the problem no longer exists on AIX. I really could not say about Windows. For me, it is resolved as FIXED.
