Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: go to http://www.marineland.com/products/commercial/retail/mars_vertical.asp scroll down and RIGHT-click on the Download Manual button, and choose Save link target as... If I keep right-clicking and trying, eventually it does pop up the Save File dialog box, but it shows "Vertical_Manual.pdf.html" as the filename, rather than the Vertical_Manual.pdf filename that it should be. If I opt to save at this stage, the transfer does work correctly. Actual Results: I get the error message "The link could not be saved. The web page might have been removed or had its name changed." Expected Results: Should have provided me with a dialog box asking where I wanted to save the file to.

seeing this too on Win2k build 2003060508.
Depends on: 160454
The only reason I posted this one, is that unlike bug# 160454, if I keep trying the operation, it eventually DOES work, albiet wtih a wrong target filename as Mozilla is automatically adding a .html extension to the target file name. I'm wondering if maybe this addition of .html at the end of the filenames is what is causing Mozilla to choke on the request? I don't have a packet sniffer on this laptop, so no way to know exactly what is being sent out.
Confirmed: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030604 Save Target works in IE6.
The server responds to moz's HEAD request with HTTP error 406 Not Acceptable. The next time Moz sends a HEAD request it gets no responce(?). After you select your location. Moz sends a normal GET request and receives the pdf. The reason it has a .html on the end is that the last responce to the HEAD request was text/html(because it sent an error page). The server is IIS 5.0 w/SecureIIS - http://www.eeye.com/SecureIIS/ .
I agree that it's a dupe of 160448. Perhaps you should post your additional information (the fact that it eventually worked) in that bug.
