User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:20.0) Gecko/20121205 Firefox/20.0 Build ID: 20121205030759 Steps to reproduce: 1. Go to http://www.filehippo.com/download_firefox/ 2. Click Download Latest Version 3. Wait Actual results: Pop-up dialog asking, "Would you like to save this file?" and "Save file/Cancel": http://i.imgur.com/G2txI.png Expected results: Pop-up dialog asking, "Would you like to save this file?" and "Save file/Cancel" with checkbox for "Do this automatically for files like this from now on." http://i.imgur.com/cGCHK.png Subsequent links to exe files should not trigger a dialog, but download automatically.
>Subsequent links to exe files should not trigger a dialog File extensions are meaningless for http connections and the whole database in Firefox is therefore based on the content-type. The response from the server in this case: >HTTP/1.1 200 OK >Content-Type: application/octet-stream >Last-Modified: Thu, 06 Dec 2012 06:06:08 GMT >Accept-Ranges: bytes >ETag: "a23bc7c877d3cd1:0" >Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5 >Date: Sat, 08 Dec 2012 00:03:55 GMT >Content-Length: 20888056 >Expires: Sat, 08 Dec 2012 08:26:54 GMT >Connection: keep-alive >Length: 20888056 (20M) [application/octet-stream] Content-Type: application/octet-stream is a general content-type for binary data. It makes no sense to store decisions based on this general content-type and Firefox is refusing to store decisions for this content-type.
