Gzip'd SQL dump files are saved wrong (is cleartext instead of .gz hence the .sql
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; de; rv:1.9b4) Gecko/2008030714 Firefox/3.0b4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; de; rv:1.9b4) Gecko/2008030714 Firefox/3.0b4 I experience the following problem in all builds of Firefox 3.0 up to the currently installed version 3.0 beta4 rc2 Whenever I try to receive a Gzip'd SQL dump in phpMyAdmin, Firefox writes a NON-Gzip'd file onto the hard drive upon download. Although the filename carries a .sql.gz extension the content of the file is not compressed in any way. When opened in Windows' notepad.exe it shows up as clear text instead as a compressed "binary". Also, the filesize doesn't match to the file I get by using Firefox 18.104.22.168 (which is a proper .sql.gz file) ... Gzip'd SQL dump saved with fx2: ~10MB Gzip'd SQL dump saved with fx3: ~44,5MB Apart from Firefox 22.214.171.124 I also checked against IE7, IE8b1 and Opera 9.26, and all these browsers don't have that problem. I think someone should take a look into this problem as some users in the mozillazine forum confirmed my problem. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Log in at a host running phpMyAdmin 2. Select "Export" in the main page 3. Select a Database, set the export options 4. Set "Save as file" to "gzipped" and click "Go" to receive the SQL dump Actual Results: A cleartext, non-gzipped file, was retrieved Expected Results: A gzipped file
