I clicked on a link that Chris Blizzard tweeted:

http://bit.ly/e8WE4r

It opened up a PDF in preview.app... and then I looked back and saw that the location bar still said http://bit.ly/e8WE4r

rather than the 301'd location:

Can't reproduce here with Firefox 4 on Windows.

Dunno if the Copy ShortURL add-on could be related, even if it seems not, could you try disabling the add-on?

That did not change the outcome.

I have all add-ons except about:me disabled and I apple-clicked the link and I got a prompt to download the pdf, went to the new tab and it had the bit.ly url still.
I can confirm this behavior on a new RC1 profile that I used sync to get my bookmarks etc. into. I right-click the bit.ly link in comment 0 -> Open in new Tab. The download link appears, I cancel. In the new tab, the URL bar shows the bit.ly link, not the 301ed location.

FWIW, my Copy ShortURL add-on does not interfere with any existing URLs, and the behavior is reproducible both with it disabled and enabled.

FWIW I'm experiencing the same behavior as Dave... admittedly it's in a Window's 7 VM running on OSX with a fresh install of Firefox 4.0RC.

When pointed to the url (http://bit.ly/e8WE4r) I see the download dialogue. After downloading the pdf the location bar doesn't update to http://www.caltrain.com/Assets/Public/48TrainScheduleDRAFT_02-09-2011.pdf

Confirming that this is present on Fx11 with very few add-ons.

I am using this as the test URL: http://1.usa.gov/aAqpWr
