When downloading a nightly build the file is a the name mozilla-blah-blah.tar.gz when it is not a gzipped file. Very confusing. The extension of gz should be used to indicate that the file is gzipped. I've been trying to figure out why the gzipped files were not recognized by gzip only to find out that I've been duped by the extension. Odd thing is when I ftp to your site the file download is a valid gzipped file. cram@24 cram]$ file mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz: GNU tar archive [cram@24 cram]$ gunzip mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz gunzip: mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz: not in gzip format [cram@24 cram]$
Hmm... I think it's a bug of mozilla. It automatically ungzips files when downloaded. It shouldn't do this for other than viewable files. Especially it shouldn't do this when you save the file by rightclicking the link. It is a regression and it was mentioned long time ago in bugzilla but I don't know the bug number.
Leaf, do you know the bug number by chance?
It's a dup of bug 35956
