USER-AGENT:Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a6) Gecko/20041220 Firefox/1.0+ When downloading files with the extension of ".XPI" (the extension file for mozilla products) by entering the url in the location bar or clicking a link, the file will be renderred as text file in the browser window instead of showing an "Save to" dialog to ask the user where to save them. This issue may due to an incorrect header sent by the server. In Internet Exploer 6.0 with WinXP SP2, the "MIME-Sniffer" detected it as a "zip" file.
Created attachment 169274 [details] When try to download an xpi file, content of file is displayed in the browser
Probably this server was used: http://188.8.131.52/pub/mozilla.org/extensions/aboutconfig/aboutconfig-0.4-tb.xpi -->moving
Yeah, they need to send .xpi's as application/x-xpinstall. (wasn't there a plan to require all mirrors to have the correct types? heh.)
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
All of the hosts in ftp.mozilla.org rotation are reporting the correct mime-type now for .xpi files.
