This should default to all files or at least let the user change file type. This is always repeated on file extentions of .dld and others. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Try to dl a .dld file or unknown file type. 2. Try to change file type 3. Actual Results: downloads file as txt file not type specified. Expected Results: At least allow the user to change file type to all files. Use all files as default download file type. Work around : Use another browser (IE?) to dl particular file.
This is not the correct component. This probably belongs to file handling. It may also be INVALID; your server is most likely sending "Content-Type: text/plain" in the HTTP headers for these files, and we are honoring that MIME- type.

It's invalid because you get this only if the server told Mozilla that the file is a text file. Example for a misconfigured server: http://www.mversen.de/mozilla/text/mozilla.rar correct server setting : http://www.mversen.de/mozilla/rar/mozilla.rar And yes, this works in IE but this is a wanted (?) bug in IE. IE violates the RFC with this wrong file handling..
