If the MIME type is not specified and the file is send via script mozilla takes the extension of the script and adds it to the file name. Example: many of the files on www.cracks.am (http://www.cracks.am/d.x?24582) If the mime type is specified mozilla adds the extension of the mime type to the filename (i.e. if you download a file a.tar.gz with mime type application/x-tar it becomes a.tar.gz.tar). Mozilla also does not look for the file extension but only at the extension of mime type. This is wrong. example: http://www.python.org/doc/current/download.html (html downloads (zip, gzip, bz2)) I have winzip assosiated with .zip and .gz files, but powerarchiver with .bz2 files. But mozilla simply takes the extension of the mime type (application/x-tar), which is .tar and want to open all files with winzip(assosiated with .tar) instead of using correct application for .bz2 files. This bug persists for a loooong time now. I'm using WinXP + SP1 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
