The mime-type is correctly recognized (application/pdf). It only seems to happen in Mozilla 1.2.1 (en and de -version), whereas Mozilla 1.0 works o.k. Using the paket sniffer etheral under linux, i found out that this only happens if the Web-Server delivers the document with the "content-disposition" field. This is true e.g. for the BSCW-Document Managing System (http://www.bscw.de) using Apache as Web-Server. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.demand a .pdf document from the BSCW-application 2. 3. Actual Results: save-to-disk window opens (to decide whether open using application / save to disk) Expected Results: open the plugin associated with the mime-type (acrobat reader plugin) in the browser
Is this true for any value of "Content-Disposition:", or only for "Content-Disposition: attachment"? If the latter, it's a duplicate of bug 185618, I think.
Depends on: 185618
pdf files fail to load *every time* with Mozilla 1.3 under Linux; why is this bug still unconfirmed? And given the number of pdf documents on the web, why is severity "normal"? All pdf loads failed on the mozilla test page at http://www.mozilla.org/quality/browser/front-end/testcases/plugins/acrobattest.html, except for the broken links (test 1 and test 6). "Open with program" is useless when we have no idea where mozilla buried the plug-in, or even what it's called.
it is by design that the helper app dialog appears for disposition:attachment. marking duplicate of bug to allow showing the file in the browser in such cases. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 185618 ***
