75KB downloaded in 0:17 using exact same build as reporter on eCS 1.14

Please answer the questions or I am going to close this.

Did you try with a new profile?

Comment 5

Another profile? I thought other profiles applied to mail only, not to the
browser. I tried changing to a different email addresss in mail bfore switching
to the browser

No add ons or non mozilla skins.

Javascript Console reports :-

stylesheet was loaded as CSS even though its
MIME type, "text/html", is not "text/css"

which I don't understand what it means

Select Tools->Switch Profile

Create a new profile then switch to it.

Then try the download again.

When the download fails, can you check the Javascript console at that time?

Comment 9

As already reported

Javascript Console reports :-

stylesheet was loaded as CSS even though its
MIME type, "text/html", is not "text/css"

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.

Comment 11

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

Just tried it with FireFox 0.8 and have exactly the same result as above and get
the same javascript Warning

dumb question.

Can you get the file dialog at all in Mozilla?

If you select file, save as - do you see a file dialog?

Comment 14

14 years ago
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

Comment 15

Acutally, I was wondering if you go to like 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.

Comment 16

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!!!

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
