I have embedded a picture in a php script in order to force the open/save dialogue. It looks like this (the file is 'Picture.php'): <?php header("Content-type: image/png"); header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=Picture.png"); readfile('/path/to/file/Picture.png'); ?> it works fine for most filenames. But if the filename contains an accented character or similar, like 'Picture-едж.png' - then the open/save dialoog will display and suggest the filename 'Picture-едж.php' (which is then the name of the php file called for) instead of 'Picture-едж.png'. I assume this is a problem with Mozilla, not PHP? Sorry, I can't provide a url yet... Mozilla: 2002-09-07 ; PHP: v4.2.3 Locale is UTF-8 both on the server and the client side. Default charset in Apache is UTF-8.
This is a problem with the fact that raw non-ascii data is not allowed in the content-disposition header unless you use a special syntax to say what the character encoding is. What is the exact header you send when the data is non-ascii?
All right, I understand that it's actually an invalid bug. Do you have some url or something where I can find info about the encoding thing? I'd be really interested to learn. Anyway, here's how the code looks. <?php header("Content-type: application/x-image"); header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=Bild på mig.png"); readfile('/path/to/file/Picture.png'); ?> The whitespace seems to be a non-problem, I have tried the combination of only using '_' along with 'å' as well. However, the 'å' in this case breaks it all. You can still download, but the suggested file name for the download dialogue will be like 'getfile.php' instead of 'Bild på mig.png'.
See http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2231.txt (and note that until bug 162765 is fixed we won't support that syntax). Marking invalid.
