Description

Couldn't find another bug about this... as per arstechnica, looks like the metadata to mark downloads in Leopard is:
com.apple.quarantine

http://arstechnica.com/reviews/os/mac-os-x-10-5.ars/11

Might be a nice little enhancement, though I know some may find it annoying.  Regardless something to at least discuss.

Firefox is likely already opted in; Apple added a bunch of internet apps by default.

is this the same as bug 387248 (or at least part of it) ?

No

Might not be a bad idea to support it though since the download manager is technically toolkit (and having netwerk code set it on OS X would be good for embedders as well).

I wonder if support is in the form of a shim (expires after a certain version, just like some stuff did in Vista), or permanent.  Anyone know who has such info (and is willing to say)?

Summary: Utilize Apple's quarantine metadata on downloads → [10.5] Utilize Apple's quarantine metadata on downloads
Firefox is opted in by its bundle ID. Other applications will probably want to set their own Info.plists.

Firefox should too, because less Magic is better.

Set the LSFileQuarantineEnabled key in our Info.plist to be true, and we can close out this bug.

bug 401748 is about using the APIs provided to quarantine adding extra metadata such as where a file came from.

Bug 401748 sounds like a saner solution.  Not every file created by Firefox wants to be quarantined.
