There's an error downloading the file. The file is not downloaded or visible. This is reproducible on my mac every time in the latest builds of Firebird, Mozilla and Camino. My experience is with Mac OS X 10.1.5. Seems to be okay in Mac OS X 10.2 and later. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click on downloadable link (such as .zip, .pdf, .jpg, .dmg, .gz, .sit) 2. Allow file to "pretend" to download. 3. Upon 100% file download, the error at (http://opalsandgems.net/test/error_OSX.jpg) occurs, reliably every time. 4. To actually get the file downloaded, I have to either click "Retry" in the Download Manager or go back and CTRL+CLICK and SAVE LINK TO DISK. Actual Results: After steps 1-3, the downloaded file had not appeared to be visible. Expected Results: Files should download just by clicking on the download link. Should not have to CTRL+CLICK to download the file. Mac G3/266mhz, 288MB Ram, Mac OS X 10.1.5. Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031203 Firebird/0.7+
Hmm, looks similar to bug 166369. But the error message is a writeError.
WFM using Firebird/Mac/2003-12-05-05-trunk on OS X 10.2.8 to download <http://www.bti.net/MozSafBookmarks.pl.gz>. DeWaun, can you reproduce this problem using a new Firebird user profile? Otherwise, this needs to be tested using OS X 10.1.x.
I have created several new profiles (3, to be exact) and have also completely removed all system files relating to Phoenix/Firebird. Still did not work on my Mac with OS X 10.1.5. I wiped my entire harddrive and upgraded to Mac OS X 10.2.8 Jaguar and now I'm not having this problem anymore. Jaguar seems to have no problems, Puma seems to be the problem. In my opinion.
Mac OS 10.1.5 with Mozilla 2003120305 (NB) I can confirm the issue (same error msg) when trying to download http://www.bti.net/MozSafBookmarks.pl.gz. So this doesn't look like a FB issue. However, it doesn't happen with every file I try to download.
I can duplicate this error on Mozilla 1.6b, MAC OS X 10.1.5. The browser no longer crashes when I try to download, but I get "an unknown error occurred. sorry about that". I can get a file to save as long as it's -not- the path specified in system properties for default download path. This workaround is ok - unless I'm trying to do something that opens another program, e.g. a link that should open iTunes to listen to a stream. Quite simply, I can't use any version of Firebird or any version of Mozilla above 1.4.x because listening to streaming music is the main reason I open the browser.
AngelWine, can you still reproduce the problem with a recent build on 10.1.5?

So why is this not a dup of bug 166369?
> So why is this not a dup of bug 166369? It looks like a 10.1.5-only issue. Not sure if that's a good argument, though :) But I reproduced the problem on mac os 10.1.5 with a nightly build (2003120305) and the patch for bug 166369 was checked in 2003-11-20. What about the error message (looks different)? Unfortunately, I'm not on 10.1.5 anymore.
multiple independent reports of this in OS X 10.1 p.s. the reporter's screenshot is 404
