Seems strange, cause with IE 6.0 vom M$ it worx fine. Sorry about that. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.I go to the website 2.Click on the link 3.i get a white windoe or nothing Actual Results: i get a white window or nothing happens Expected Results: Mozilla shoul start a download or handle HLSW oder Torrent Links in the way of activating the tool
Can you give specific instances of when the download fails? Do all links to HLSW or BitTorrent files fail, or only specific ones?
This failure happens often with different links. BitTorrent and HLSW links never work, perhaps i need to register the applications so mozialla will know which files are associated with different tools. Links sometimes work sometimes not. For example i often had problems with .exe files, perhaps this is a security aspect but wasn't able to manage this. Im sorry for not giving you further information, but this problems happen on different sites and i can't get an idea where the problems found.
I also experience download problems. Whenever I click any download link, i got the error message: "C:\Dokume~1\Tobias\locale~1\temp\lwycysf. could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later...." I have installed Mozilla 1.4 on a fresh XP installation, new profile, and I delete all the helper applications in preferences and still it doesn't download.
reporter: if you could please provide a HTTP log that would be most appreciated. instructions are here: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/netlib/http/http-debugging.html thanks!
there seems to be a similiar bug report: bug 203689 Attached you'll find the requested log. I went to www.download.de, choosed any new download, had to click through 2-3 other pages of ads and then tried to download and got the mentioned error message. The error appears with any download link, wheater it is .com, .exe, .zip, .tar .... Tobias
might be interesting: I cannot open email attachments, too. Saving them works, but not opening from within the mail client.
