I sent the following e/mail to netscape feedback. firstname.lastname@example.org responded suggesting I use Bugzilla to suggest an upgrade. Name : Ian Kirk Email : email@example.com Product : Navigator OS : Windows 98 Following Netscape downloading a file it attempts to open the file according to the file's extension. If the application is not set up within Navigator (Preferences ---> Navigator ---> Applications) then Netscape simply shows up an application not found message and stops processing the download. With Windows, when the user attempts to open a file where Windows does not recognize the extention, it shows you the available readers for the user to select from. Can you add similar functionalilty to Navigator so that it offers the available applications to select from, with the option to permanently define the application to that file extension.

Unfortunately, firstname.lastname@example.org is misdirecting people to bugzilla.mozilla.org. As we've already informed them; we don't handle Netscape enhancement requests, as Mozilla is a totally different piece of software. I'm not certainly offhand how this is implemented within Mozilla. Of course, you're certainly welcome to download a build from www.mozilla.org, and see if the implementation is how you think it should be, and re-open this enhancement request if appropriate.
