E.g: a file named "simple_example.pps" will be renamed into "simple" (without extension). Anyway some kind of files keeps the extension (for example zip file: "simple_example.zip" will be renamed into "simple.zip"). Maybe those files are named with a space instead of underscore (and Yahoo shows "_") because Internet Explorer save them replacing underscores with spaces. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual Results: incorrect file name
I can confirm that this happens with both my Windows executable download version of firefox (which incorrectly calls itself firefox 0.8, even though it is 0.9.1) and my linux debug build of firefox, which correctly calls itself 'Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8a2) Gecko/20040709 Firefox/0.9.0+'. On both versions, when I save a file with an underscore in the filename, the file is saved as a substring of the filename. I.e. I saved the file 'All_logos.gif' as 'All'. Now, I have an old version of Mozilla Firebird for windows (Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7) And it took the same image and saved it as 'All.gif'. Also on Windows, I have Mozilla 1.6 (Gecko/20040113). This also wanted to save it as 'All', however mozilla gives a save dailog, and the type it was going to save 'All' as was *.gif. I have noticed this behaviour with several file types.
This behavior still exists in 1.0 preview release of Firefox (saves file with an underscore in the name WITHOUT the extension) as well as Mozilla 1.7.2 (saves the file with the name truncated at the underscore but WITH the proper extention). This is under linux.
I can confirm this bug. I have similar problems on Yahoo! Mail on every build of Firefox I've ever tried. My word documents such as (my_example.doc) get renamed to my (without extension). Also of note is that if I try to download this file in IE, it will just replace the underscores with spaces (my example.doc).
