Description

16 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20030205 Chimera/0.6+
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20030205 Chimera/0.6+

If I try to download a file by clicking on a link to the file, the file gets
downloaded to my download directory with a temporary file name, not the actual
name of the file.
This means that I am unable to click on the "Open" button in the Download
Manager to open the file
I have to navigate to the folder and double-click on the file to open it

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on a link to download a file
2. File downloads in Download Manager
3. Try to click the Open button in Download Manager

Actual Results:  
Button is grayed out. File is in downloads directory with temporary name

Expected Results:  
Button should not be grayed out. File should be in downloads directory with real
name

I've tried this after deleting all my chimera preferences and even creating a
new user to try this

This is also a regression as it used to work

This only happens on machines where the Users folder is on a separate partition
from the OS X System volume

Found the problem.
If the Users folder is on a different partition, the Users folder needs to be
readable and writeable by the admin user

Doh!
