From email@example.com-- I noticed a problem at this URL: http://oarnet.tucows.com/adnload/dlzoc.html After a second or two, a Save dialog comes up before the file downloads. Press Cancel. Now, on the page there is a link that says Click Here if your download does not start automatically. If I do this, rather than prompting it to save to my hard drive, it executes "directly" from the web site. (downloads and executes with no user intervention). What if this was some sort of virus or other malware executable?
this is a bad security hazard. marking nsbeta2
This is because we haven't implemented the dialog yet. This is a feature exception bug that bill Law is working on. Once his bug is implemented you'll be prompted with a dialog asking if you want to open or save this to disk. That will make this bug invalid. I guess I'll mark it a dup of the UI bug.

This is really just a dup of the feature exception bug: 43583 which bill Law is working on. Implement the helper app dialog asking the user what they want to do with this content. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 43583 ***
