Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 134648
Saving doesn't prompt to overwrite
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:50 EST
Description of problem:
Firefox (with the new GTK file chooser) doesn't prompt to overwrite
files when saving.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Save a file/page/anything in firefox.
2. Save something else in the same place
It overwrites without prompting
It should prompt to overwrite
Still happening with firefox-0.10.1-1.0PR1.10.
Is this an upstream bug? Or is it a problem Redhat's back ported gtk
It's a double upstream bug technically... GTK+ has a bug filed on it
to handle this automatically, but in the meantime, Firefox should do
it itself. I originally wrote the upstream file chooser support, and
plan to have this fixed over the weekend.
It now prompts, but the file chooser goes away if you don't want to
overwrite which i think sucks. I'll fix that in a future update.
This is happening again in FC-4 and FC3-updates.
It works fine for me... Make sure your prefs are properly set.

Re-resolving RAWHIDE. This code fix is still there, so a new bug would be
appreciated if you still think its really a regression since it would certainly
be a different issue.
