Enter a ftp-site 2. Right click on a folder and pick "Save link as" Actual Results: I get a file that contains information about the files located under the folder i tried to download, but not a directory, a file with no extension. Expected Results: Nothing, firefox works as normal. Download the selected folder and the files in it, or maybe disable the save file as if it is a folder.
Saving the link saves the HTML page of the directory listing. This is most likely by design (and not quite what you want it to do - recursively download all files within the directory).
invalid (by Comment #1) or enhancement (save folder recursively from ftp) ??
We don't support downloading a whole folder, nor do we plan to.

Yeah, but that's not what i reported as a bug. I don't mean that you should add such a feature, what i was reporting is that i get a malformed text file containing a lot of worthless data. As i mentioned, a nicer approach would be to disable the Save File As.. when you are browsing an ftp-directory. //Johan
