Hello,

Firefox 5.0. Mac OS X 10.6.8.

See screen photo :
http://screencast.com/t/z2k5vmtzM

The Downloads window shows "schubert-it.com" as the original server of the downloaded file. This is incorrect. The original server is "www.schubert-it.com". Proof : I right-click on the download : "Copy the download's original address". I get "http://www.schubert-it.com/downloads/pdf-plugin-242.dmg".

This is a security issue. The servers "nanana.com" and "www.nanana.com" are ofter the same server, but not always. They can be different servers, with different levels of trust. And a download is often a program which the user will run on her computer.

Thanks for correcting that,

Nicolas
