Steps to reproduce: 1.Go to https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/z/en-US/firefox/addon/5308/eula/75079 2.Add to Firefox->Click on the "Install for Windows anyway" expected behavior: Incompatible platform files are sent as content-disposition:attachment.User is prompted to save the installation file. actual behavior: Add-on installation proceeds on Firefox on an unsupported OS.
Why do we expect the user to want to save instead of install?

(In reply to comment #1) > Why do we expect the user to want to save instead of install? If add-ons are not supported on a particular OS,then users should not be allowed to install that add-on as this might adversely affect their overall experience with add-ons.However,they must be allowed to download(and save) the installation file for a supported OS. This become particularly important for users who are new to AMO who may be confused into installing add-ons which are not right for them.
Discussed with Krupa in person; the warning should be sufficient to prevent normal users from being confused, and users who want to transfer to a different computer can just right click and save like usual.
