Here is an example of a compressed SVG file: http://adrianboyko.com/RelativeMap.svgz Reproducible: Always Actual Results: Save file dialogue opens Expected Results: In-browser-view of the svgz-file (feature request)
Bug 308153 comment 1 suggests this should be supported, are you sure the server is sending the correct headers?
I'm not sure (in fact: I don't know ;-)). I just made a google search for some SVGZ files and tried to open them. I either get the file open dialogue or an XML error. I have the same problem with SVGZ files I compressed with Inkscape... The file open dialogue pops up...
Okay, now I've seen that the server sends the file as content-type text/plain (as well as every other server I found in the google search results). Can't we sort out SVGZ files just by the file ending instead of the content-type?
Not without going against the http specification.
There have also been security exploits in the past, I believe, that have relied on that sort of override. Thanks for taking the time to file a bug report nevertheless, Tobias. You might find the following page useful: http://wiki.svg.org/Server_Configuration
