Could you go to: ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/ and download a new build, and retest? This should be fixed now.
Tried the 1/13/03 nightly build as suggested, but... Now when I select a jpg link it pops up a box with the additional option "Open it with the default application". But when I select this and uncheck the "Always show this dialog...", it opens the image correctly, but the next time it pops up the same dialog. I just want it to go to the default tool (in my case, Mozilla) to open a jpg file without it asking me every time.

Sounds like the site is setting an explicit header that says the jpeg is _not_ to be handled inline.. What site is this?
Ken: Does this bug only happen on a specific url?
The problem seems to be localized to mail.com. Apparently the problem is theirs, although Netscape 4.7 handles the files correctly. Don't know where to go from here.
Netscape 4 has no support for "content-disposition: attachment". We do. Could you possibly try a recent build and see whether the message on the dialog is that we can't handle the type or that the site asked us to not handle it?
I installed the nightly build (1.5b), and when selecting .jpg file from mail.com the popup says "The site has suggested that <filename> be handled as an attachment. It is of type image/jpeg (JPEG Image) and located at http://mail01.mail.com/getattach/". It then asks what to do with the file, and the first option is to Open it with the default application. This is a nice new option that helps a lot. However the checkbox to "Always show this dialog before handling files of this type" is checked and grayed out. I'd like to uncheck this so that it works by default.
> However the checkbox to "Always show this dialog before handling files of this > type" is checked and grayed out. That's correct. Sites using that option expect the user to just be given a filepicker to save the file (that's what IE does). We give the user a choice to use a helper instead, but we can't just automatically start the helper because that breaks some use cases.... this will especially be the case when one of the options on that dialog is "view in browser anyway". Sounds like things are working exactly as they are supposed to....
