The download dialoge box only shows up to the first space. For example, if I try to download "test file.doc" only "test" shows up. This also prevents me from launching the file with Word (simular for any other extention). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Click the file to download (with spaces in filename). 2. 3. Actual Results: Download dialoge only shows the filename up to the first space. Expected Results: Shown the entire file name and offered a choice of launching the file with the correct application.
This is almost certainly invalid because the server's Content-Disposition HTTP header is not quoted, and it needs to be if you're going to get the full filename, otherwise it will only parse the part before the first space. Can you provide a URL, or confirm for yourself if the Content-Disposition header is quoted or not and let us know?
I'm not sure how to get the Content-Disposition header. The website requires a login so you won't be able to access it yourself unfortunatly (webct.ics.purdue.edu). I do know that the full filename does show up whenI use Internet Explorer 6 and that it does show the extention, which allows me to launch the file directly. If there is an uncomplicated way to get the Content-Disposition header, let me know and I will try.
I don't know if this falls under your description of uncomplicated, but here goes: If you install the LiveHTTPHeaders extension (from http://livehttpheaders.mozdev.org/), and open the LiveHTTPHeaders window from the Tools menu after you restart Firefox, you'll see an empty window open. When you click on links, it will dump the HTTP headers to the window. When you click on the link to the file in question, you should see the headers for that file, and there should be a Content-Disposition header there. The filename should be quoted (but I expect that it's not). If its not, then its a server side problem, and the bug is invalid. If it is quoted, then its likely a problem on our end.
Yeah, I'd say it was pretty easy. I appriciate it when you guys make stuff friendly for the rest of us non techie people. Thanks! Here are the results from the Live HTTP Headers tool. It looks that the content-disposition header is not quoted.

Thanks, that confirms what I suspected. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 221028 ***
