Firefox unpacked the .gz file without asking me
User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 I've downloaded the current Thunderbird from the url above. Firefox 0.8 saved the file as thunderbird-0.5-macosx.dmg.gz on my Harddisk, but it was allready unpacked! I really dont want this to happen. i've downloaded the gz file and it should stay that way until i unpack it. Or at least change the extention, when its no longer a .gz File For some reason the Windows version of thunderbird wasnt unpacked, maybe because its in a .zip and not a .gz If firebird supports unpacking .gz Files it should ask me if i want it Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download the .gz File 2. Its unpacked Actual Results: The .gz File was unpacked Expected Results: It should stay as it was. I want Firefox to download the Files not doing something with them the resulting thunderbird-0.5-macosx.dmg.gz on my harddisk isnt a .gz file anymore (deleting the ".gz" made it usable under MacOs as Disk Image)
I can confirm this behaviour. BTW, it happens only with gzipped files, .bz2 and .zip aren't affected.
This problem is associated with Apache webservers being configured with: "Content-Encoding: gzip" However, this still amounts to a valid complaint wherein if the browser is going to support decompression on the fly like this, it should give the user a choice as to whether they want to decompress the file, or change the filename to reflect the decompression has taken place.
