This loses very important information about files. People who want to use the download date can easily use 'touch' (at least on unix and linux systems). But at present I am forced to use wget instead of firefox when I want date information preserved. This is often a nuisance as I have to select url in firefox and paste it onto the command line to run wget. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download any file whose last-modfied date you know 2. Check the date shown on the download file I don't use windows myself, but I think firefox has the same problem on my wife's windows machine. Actual Results: Wrong date shown 19486 Jul 14 00:41 summary-gc7.pdf Expected Results: 19486 Apr 14 02:03 summary-gc7.pdf This fault has always existed as far as I know.
