Build: M11 (1999111520) System: WinNT SP5 PII 64 MB RAM The 'Save File' dialog does not pass the file name to the Windows 'Save File' dialog. So, while downloading, one has to enter the file name manually. Also, if you right-click on a link, choose 'Save Link As', proceed upto the Windows 'Save As' dialog and then cancel, the Mozilla 'Save As' dialog does not disappear, so you have to select 'Cancel' there as well.

Summary: File name does not get populated automatically while downloading. → [4.xP] No filenames generated for index files on d/l
With the current M12 build, any *existing* filename is passed to the "Save File" dialog that appears after "Save Link as..." is chosen on the context menu. On the other hand, if there is no filename portion to the url (example: http://www.mozilla.org/), no filename is generated (e.g., www_mozilla_org.html) as happens with Communicator. The same applies to "File>Save Page as" if the current page is an index page. Regarding the second issue, with this build the "Saving File" dialog does not appear until after the "Save File" dialog is [Ok]'d. Tested with: 1999-11-29-08-M12 nightly binary on Windows NT 4.0sp3 Marking [4.xP]. Changing Summary from "File name does not get populated automatically while downloading" to "[4.xP] No filenames generated for index files on d/l" Changing Component from "Browser-General" to "XPApps".
Another problem is the URL bar changes when you click on a link to download it and then cancel it. Test Case: Go to http://www.xitami.com/download.htm . Click on swin24d6.zip. The Mozilla 'Unknown File Type' dialog appears. Click 'Cancel' Result: The URL bar changes to the link to the zip file. Subsequently, if you choose File->Save Page As; the file name passed to the 'Save File' dialog is 'swin24d6.zip' Expected Result: The URL bar should remain unchanged. The 'Save page As' option should pass null parameter to 'Save File' dialog. Other Info: This problem does not occur if you right-click on the link and follow the rest of the procedure.
save as, law.
Somebody convince me we need to fix this for beta 1.
Observed on Linux build 2000.01.07.08: 1. Go to http://mozilla.org 2. Click on one of the ftp links for nightly builds in the lower right and choose save as; or right click and select save link as Save file dialog appears, without filename, even though the filename is part of the URL The same happens with http links, eg when trying to save the link to "Newsgroups" on the front page (http://www.moziall.org/community.html) Does this happen on other platforms as well? Should I file a separate bug? Change the summary (It's not just index pages that have the problem)? In any case, this is pretty annoying and should be fixed for beta.
The filename is not getting populated in the X "File Save" dialog on Linux, but it is on NT. Will open a new bug for the no filename generated for index pages issue, for clarity. Restoring original Summary, adding [pp] code. Tested with: 2000-01-22-09-M14 nightly binary on Linux custom Slackware 4.0, fvwm2.
