User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3.1) Gecko/20030425 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3.1) Gecko/20030425 The RealPlayer plug-in URL is just an example - .jpg is added to EXEs and other files types (e.g., WMV, MPG, even JPG among them) on download. This particular example was frustrating because Mozilla deleted by temp file copy when the file failed to execute, so I couldn't even rename the cached copy. I had to use IE to download the plug-in for Mozilla! The same problem has occurred when an image is linked to a file - clicking on the image to download the file often results in having .jpg appended to the filename (e.g., blah.PDF.JPG or blah.JPG.JPG or blah.TXT.JPG) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. just try to download the RealPlayer plug-in - it's an autodownload. 2. 3. Actual Results: the 8 meg file downloads, .jpg is appended to the existing .exe filename, the file fails to execute, Mozilla deletes the cached copy. Because it's an auto download, I can't right click and "Save Target As" Expected Results: Mozilla should not append incorrect extensions to filenames Sometimes there are also problems with downloading files that have redirected addresses - Mozilla reports that it cannot save the file because it's location may have changed.
Reporter, please look at your Preferences Look at Helper Applications located under Navigator Edit application/octet-string in the list to se if the .jpg is there under extension
Happens on Win98 SE as well (Mozilla 1.3). In fact, it happens on the Mozilla home page when I try to download Mozilla 1.3.1/Win (11 Mb). It does not happen on every site, but it does often. Referring to comment #1, application/octet-stream is set and defined as type JPEG. If that is incorrect, exactly what should it be??
Comment #2: The extension field should be empty
