Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. note: winamp must be installed 2. open http://classic.winamp.com/skins/ and select the skin of your taste 3. click download on any skin link Actual Results: mozilla starts showing a text chain that is the file it should be prompting for download Expected Results: ask what to do with the file instead of start displaying a non sense text http://ftpwa.newaol.com/customize/component/2003/4/14/S/Voyager_1a.wsz this first addres does not work ftp://ftpwa.newaol.com/customize/component/2003/4/14/S/Voyager_1a.wsz this is properly working
MIME type is text/plain, which is wrong. Should be something else like application/binary or perhaps a Winamp-specific MIME type. FTP doesn't use MIME types, hence it works in FTP mode.

Summary: mozilla downloads text instead of files when following any skin download link → winamp.com - mozilla downloads text instead of files when following any skin download link
Whiteboard: [mime type]
Version: Trunk → unspecified
MIME type could be set to the unofficial interface/x-winamp-skin according to the forums: http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=99555 (there's also a workaround on the client side for this issue)
well, i've tried the proposed solution in that forum and did not work for me. that is because settings were good and mozilla has its own MIME types. (hate to say this but...) it worked fine on msie in both cases. i'll be waiting
Winamp is looking at the issue. Marking assigned.

WFM: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 I am prompted to download the skin files.
the .wal links are not served in text/plain but .wsz still are, see an example with http://classic.winamp.com/skins/details.php?id=52206 (click "download")
http://ftpwa.newaol.com/customize/component/2003/3/30/S/JadeTube_3.wsz is still plain text. not fixed.
You're correct, neither of those WFM, contacting.
I am now getting a download prompt with: the links provided in comment #15 and comment #16 Note: I am using Firebird 0.7 - official release - therefore well before the implemented fix to help with MIME type problems. I would recommend resolving this as fixed :)

- Go to Edit menu --> Preferences --> Navigator --> Helper Applications - Click on New type - Name it like you want (I named it application/winamp5skin) - Extension: WSZ - Click on Open it using the default application (in that case, WinAMP is set by the OS to open WSZ files) - OK
