found using 2001.03.29.08 opt comm bits on Mac OS 9.0x. 1. go to the above ftp url and select a location that has mac bin file. ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/2001-03-28-04-trunk would work. 2. double-click the MacMozillaFullInstaller.sea.bin file. 3. in the resulting Downloading dialog, make sure "Save to disk" is selected, and click OK. 4. in the resulting file picker, pick a download location and click Save. the download progress [Saving File] will appear. wait for it to complete the download. 5. go to the download location. results: * the icon for the MacMozillaFullInstaller.sea.bin file is blank. * after double-clicking this file's icon, i get a "The document MacMozillaFullInstaller.sea.bin could not be opened, because the application program that created it could not be found." btw, dragging and dropping the file onto Stuffit Expander does work properly. just seems like we aren't registering the filetype properly.
We need to set the file type/creator on the downloaded file, when saving direct to disk.
We are setting it, or at least attempting to. Any file that is created will go through nsLocalFileMac::SetOSTypeAndCreatorFromExtension() and, testing the case given here, it did and it got set to the proper file type/creator. Since we're using IC to do this, is it possible that IC on your system is somehow missing a mapping for .bin? Maybe we need to, on a one-time basis, check if IC has common mappings and, if not, set them?

This bug is targeted at a Mac classic platform/OS, which is no longer supported by mozilla.org. Please re-target it to another platform/OS if this bug applies there as well or resolve this bug. I will resolve this bug as WONTFIX in four weeks if no action has been taken. To filter this and similar messages out, please filter for "mac_cla_reorg".
Target Milestone: mozilla1.0.1 → Future
I cannot confirm this behaviour in MacOS X with a recent build. Because we are not working on anything dealing with old Mac since 1.3.1 anymore, I mark this "WONTFIX". In case that it reoccurs in MacOS X, please file a new bug.
