This means that a file will not transfer correctly and Mozilla trys to save the .php file instead of the target file. Sometimes the file can be downloaded by doing a rt click-save target as, but not always. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to " http://natata.hn3.net/download_ebook_compiler.html " 2. Find "Natata eBook Compiler Free v2.0" (File Size 1.23 MB) 3. Click on download link "from site #1". 4. Mozilla will pop-up a download window asking to save as "*.php" instead of running the script. Actual Results: Mozilla downloads the script instead of running it. Expected Results: Mozilla should have executed the .php script and started to transfer the download target. I am using Mozilla V1.3alpha
mozilla DOESN't execute .php nor do that other browsers like IE, Opera. Php is a script that runs on the server and a browser gets only the HTML Output from this script. Reporter: If you rename the file, does it work ?

Yes,I can rename the file and it will work. Why does mozilla insist on adding .php as the file extension? I have noticed that it adds the 'unrecognized' extension with other files extensions that it doesn't recognize.
