Try to download a Red Hat package on this page: http://www.freeciv.org/download.phtml You will get the dialog for "This file has mime type application/octet-stream and cannot be viewed by Mozilla." Now go to "Save to disk" and click OK. You will see that Mozilla has chosen the extension of .exe for you, and doesn't take the extension from the real filename which is (e.g.) "freeciv-1.11.4- 1.i586.rpm" . So when I save it, I have a file named "freeciv-1.11.4- 1.i586.exe" which is not what I want. The behavior should be that Mozilla should try to use the exact filename specified by the URL. Oddly enough, another weird behavior (this might be a different bug, but I'm not sure...). If you click to download the gzipped source code, the same dialog will come up, but the name Mozilla will want to give it is "test.exe". What's up with this? Running 2000090110 Windows.
