when i want to download adobe acrobat reader 5.1 (from the page www.adobe.com) and i fill out the step 1 and then click on "download" on step 3 then, after opening another window, "mozilla 1.1 german" closes all window without doing anything. Therefore it is impossible for me to download the adobe acrobat reader. This is reproducible. I do not know where the problem arises and whether it is really from the form submission function in mozilla or not. Thanx and greetinx, Wolfgang
Works for me, Build 2002101708 (en-US) on Win2k. A new page loads (I deny cookies from being set) and download filepicker opens; file is downloaded and executable. Wolfgang, did you download a talkback enabled build? It sounds like there is no talkback program popping up after the crash... But if there is one, can you post the talkback ID here? (start talkback.exe in bin\components in your mozilla folder to look it up)
I (=the reporter of the potential bug) continued to track down the error: I am using Mozilla build 20020826 (1.1 German) and the download works well when I am logged into Windows XP as "administrator". When I have only "user" privilleges then the download does not start, but instead of opening the "save to..." dialog mozilla exits completely instantly. I reduced the secuity settings by accepting "all cookies", by "enabling all scripts" but I could not make it work under "user" privilleges (I'm in a novell network and the system supervisor grants this privillege when logging in anything other than "workstation only"). For the "administrator" it works even when accepting only cookies from the same server and when disabling scripts to open undemanded windows. Moreover, this problem must be site-specific because downloads form HP (www.hp.com), e.g. a printer driver for my HP DJ 640C for Windows 2000, works fine even under my "user" privilleges. So I guess there is something in the www.adobe.com page that mozilla 1.1 can't handle properly. Any suggestions? Greetinx from Austria to all the mozilla community Wolfgang
sorry, I (=the reporter) forgot something just now. As Andreas Kunz suggested, I checked for the talkback.exe. YES the installation has talckback.exe, it IS enabled too, but does not open upon the closing of all windows of mozilla. Looks pretty much like a nomal exit operation.
Wolfgang, I tested with 2002102408 on Win2000 and it works for me. No winodow closing or whatever. Please fetch a new build from ftp.mozilla.org and try with that. Also test with a new profile. Thx and "Schen Griass noch Innsbruck!" ;-)

reporter (Wolfgang): can you reproduce this bug with a recent build of mozilla (for example, 1.3a)? if so, please comment again with details. if not, please resolve this bug as WORKSFORME. thanks.
The download now WORKSFORME on the mozilla 1.2.1 final version. May have been connected with the ATI graphics driver bug?? Thanx, Wolfgang (the reporter)
