Want to download file PRNDRV.EXE from highlighted link above. When selected with mouse a blank screen appears with the URL http://www.cds-inc.com/pub/pmfax/prndrv.exe and no further progress is possible although the browser is still active and you can back out of it Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.go to url http://www.cds-inc.com//techsprt/pmfaxodl.html 2.scroll down and double left click mouse on file PRNDRV.EXE 3. Actual Results: new page is displayed which is blank ie background onl showing Expected Results: Should have provided download directory selection box
Tried same procedure using Netscape 4.61 fot OS/2 and was successful. Worked as expected
WFM : Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040402 Firefox/0.8.0+ Reporter, pls try with a new profile.
75KB downloaded in 0:17 using exact same build as reporter on eCS 1.14 Reporter, are you using any add-ins or non-stock skin?
Select Tools->Switch Profile Create a new profile then switch to it. Then try the download again.
Created new profile - switched to it - retried download - result the same as old profile - blank screen and browser does not perform download
I was hoping for something different this time. I have no idea what to do with this one. You are the only one that can recreate it.
The bug is consistant even though I am updating to the latest nightly each day Netscape 4.61 for OS/2 does the download ok and I have tried it successfully on my laptop with an old 1.5 version of Warpzilla. don't know if it helps but my system is a amd 233 mhz 128mb memory running Warp 4 fixpak 15 using the latest beta kernals tcp/ip 4.3 and java 1.31
dumb question. Can you get the file dialog at all in Mozilla? If you select file, save as - do you see a file dialog?
No I don't get the file dialog - on the same page, in the same format are zip files - if I select one of those I get the expected file dialog. When I select the file with the EXE extension I get a blank screen instead - when I interrogate PAGE INFO under VIEW it shows the mime type as application/octet-stream - does that help? I don't understand mime types
Acutally, I was wondering if you go to like www.yahoo.com and select File->Save PAge As, do you get the file dialog. I'm wondering if for some reason the file dialog isn't working under Mozilla on your system at all.
No problem with the file dialog as demonstrated by selecting a .zip extention. I tried the "save page as" on yahoo and the file dialog did appear as expected. I tried the old Netscape trick of holding down the shift key and selecting the PRNDRV.EXE file and it worked!! the file dialog appeared and I was able to download the file!!!
Can you also do about:plugins and tell me what plugins you have installed?

Could you try disabling the 'npwv.dll' plugin? We're wondering if the 'application/octet-stream' is getting in the way. And if that doesn't work, try disabling your plugins one by one; perhaps one of those is causing your problem.
Hmm, I just downloaded the latest build of WarpVision and installed the plugin myself. However, when I loaded 'about:plugins', I didn't see any of the 'application/octet-stream' listings. So you may also want to try downloading the latest version of WarpVision.
I think you have nailed it!!! I disabled Warpvision NPWV.DLL plugin and rebooted and tried the download and the download was successful! I think this report can be closed now. Thanks for all your time and help Mozilla/Warpzilla is a magnificent achievement! thank you all for all your hard work
Excellent. Glad we could help you.

Did you try the new version of NPWV.DLL?
Yes I have installed the newer npwv.dll plugin and it does not cause the error. Thanks again
