User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Most servers send an HTTP header called "Last-Modified:" which informs about when was the last time a file was modified. However, Mozilla ignores this header and always sets the "Last modified" property of the file to be the current system date. Could you please add an option (maybe a hidden one, if you prefer) to preserve the server's last-modified date? Thank you very much. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to any webpage 2. Download any file 3. Check the file's "last-modified" date in Windows Explorer Actual Results: The file's "last modified" date was incorrectly set to be the current date. Expected Results: Mozilla should have preserved the file's "last-modified" date specified by the server.
We could probably do this if we could get the last-modified date off the channel in a useful format (not as a string) or if there were an easy way to convert said string to a date.... If there isn't, it's not worth it. Even if we can do this, is it desirable? Ben? Thoughts?
