User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20060214 Camino/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20060214 Camino/1.0 When using Camino to look at e-mail from mac.com attatched *.doc files that I download are not recognized by Word as *.doc files and will not open. However, when I used firefox to to download these same files everything worked fine. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to mac.com mail using Camino 2.Download an attatched *.doc file from an e-mail 3.Open *.doc file with Word and a dialog box pops up that says "Word cannot open this document.The document might be in use or might not be a valid Word document." 4.If the above steps are done using Firefox instaed of Camino everything works fine. Actual Results: See above Expected Results: Opened the Word document.
This is most likely a problem with Apple's server not properly setting the MIME type of the files, and as such, isn't Camino's fault. (Firefox -- and Safari, for that matter -- has a very irritating tendency to make assumptions about what file extensions mean, contrary to the whole point of MIME types.) cl
Does Word actually care about MIME types? This sounds more like the download might be incomplete or corrupted in some way. If you compare a file as downloaded with Camino to the same file downloaded by Firefox, are the file sizes the same? Do they have the same checksum? (To check, open Terminal and type: "md5 ", then drag-and-drop the file onto the terminal, hit enter, and repeat with the other file, and see if what's printed out matches)
It seems the problem was caused by a bad cable modem. When I pinged a web site I was losing 20 to 30% of the packets. My cable modem was replaced today and the download worked fine with Camino.
