User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; U; Warp 4.5; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030509 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; U; Warp 4.5; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030509 This is with for example a .doc file (any file will work), you have mime type application/msword set to run WordPro on the file (the system default), clicking on the file works the first time, but any and all subsequent times WordPro opens with an empty file. If you go to the "temp" directory and erase the file, as well as the dup renamed file that occurs after the second attempted opening of the file, it works again -- once. The subsequent copies of the file in the temp directory get renamed as original-1.doc, original-2.doc, etc. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Receive a .doc attachment 2 [review]. Click on it to load it - works OK, close WordPro 3. Click on it a second time Actual Results: WordPro opens with a blank file Expected Results: WordPro opens with the attached file
I've done some more testing. Apparently Lotus Word Pro will not load a file with a filename that has a hyphen in it, at least not if it is "dropped" on the application. You can File|Open such a file. Is there a workaround, perhaps say the ability in Mozilla to instead insert a ":" or "_" instead of a hyphen in the second copied file? * Orest
Sorry, this is a WordPro bug and we aren't going to workaround it. My suggestion is to use a CMD file that renames the file.
