User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20030930 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20030930 Mac OSX 10.1.5 Build: 2003093005 I don't know if its just a problem on my computer but I am having trouble downloading to my desktop completely. It will download what looks like most of the file and a dialog pops up and says something to the effect of "/Users/mydirectory/Desktop/nameoffile.gz could not be saved, because an unknown error occurred. Sorry about that. Try saving to a different location." I then retry the download to another location and the download works just fine. The good thing is that the browser's not crashing on downloads (which earlier builds did). The bad thing is it isn't downloading to the default download place. Again, this is an improvement over not being able dow download at all but is an otherwise rather inconvenient bug Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Click on a link to download a file (.sit .gz .hqx etc.) 2.Download proceeds as expected up until it is nearly finished Actual Results: Error dialog pops up on top of saving dialog informing me that the file could not be saved in the location (my desktop) because of an unknown error. This happens even though there is plenty of drive space available and the download is nearly complete. Expected Results: It should have saved the file to the desktop (my default location) No crash to report. Browser still functions and downloads completely if told to save to an alternate location.
not an OS-X user, but maybe is something related to bug 213639; supposedly, all downloading problems should be gone starting with the build from 09-30; but you're using exactly this build ...
Download _crashes_ should be gone. There are also existing bugs with downloads not completing like this on Mac OSX, though....
Yes bug 213639 might be related, but this problem is different because downloads never got this far with earlier OSX builds. As mentioned by Boris, bug 213639 and its resolution addressed the browser crashing. (I should know I was an active tester.) This bug does not crash the browser but makes downloading inconvenient. I'll try changing the default download area and see if this makes a difference. If it is any indication, Camino downloads the exact same attempted file just fine to the desktop so I'm guessing it is likely not a file directory problem with the OS. Incidentally I tried to post a comment about this bug to bug 213639 but bugzilla kept giving me an error disallowing me to do so.
Now using build 2003100505 Ok unlike other browsers I've encountered one cannot change the default download folder from within Mozilla. I decided the second best would be to use the internet control panel. We'll see if that makes any difference. More news when it happens
Hmm... this looks like a dupe of bug 166369.
hmmm it does look related. Almost exact same symptoms and everything but 166369 is based on Mozilla 1.2.1 .... and I don't remember having this problem with that version of Mozilla.
Attempting to change default download directory through Mac OSX Internet control panel appears to do nothing for Mozilla. Downloading error persists.
Pat, can you reproduce this with a current build?
Hey~ the most recent build I downloaded (20031225) seems to have fixed this bug. The file downloads and doesn't give an error message. I'll have to do a couple more tries to be sure but so far so good.
OK. Resolving as wfm.
