Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open e-mail with attachment in yahoo account. 2.Click in "save to computer" next to the file you want to download 3.Click in "download attachment" Actual Results: The file name of the file I expect to download is truncated Expected Results: Save it with the filename that appears in the yahoo webmail page
(In reply to comment #0) I also experience this exact bug and can provide additional details, under Windows XP Pro. I have also confirmed that it is unique to Firefox as opposed to Internet Explorer (ie, IE does the correct thing). Here is a step-by-step analysis of what I see from both programs: 1. An attachment that the sender named "My PDF-Attachment.pdf" is available for download from the mail. 2. Yahoo displays this filename as "My_PDF_Attachment.pdf" in both programs. 3. I press the "Save to Computer" link next to the file and both programs show a page where the "File Name:" is shown as "My_PDF_Attachment.pdf" 4. Clicking the page's "Download Attachment" button using IE brings up IE's "File Download" panel, from which I can "Open", "Save" or "Cancel". On this panel, the filename is shown as the sender intended: "My PDF-Attachment.pdf" Pressing "Save" preserves that name (with the spaces and punctuation) and I can then choose a destination folder for the download. 5. From Firefox, clicking Yahoo's "Download Attachment" button brings up Firefox's "Opening" panel, where the file name has been corrupted. The panel actually says "Opening My" in the title bar (instead of "Opening My PDF-Attachment.pdf"), and the content of the panel says You have chosen to open My which is an application/octet-stream from http://b2.mail.yahoo.com. I can "Save to Disk", but if I proceed with that, a panel with the title bar "Enter name of file to save to..." is launched with the "File name:" field reading "My". The characters " PDF-Attachment.pdf" have been dropped. This filename handling behavior will occur ANY and EVERY time the sender uses space or punctuation characters in their file names. I hope this is helpful. - Dean
