Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 159849
Problems will (badly formed?) Content-Disposition HTTP header
Last modified: 2007-12-20 11:46:50 EST
If you try and download an attachment whose filename contains a space from yahoo
mail, firefox gets confused, basically.
- Mail contains "Tax Assignment.doc"
- Click on link, download dialog tries to save/open a file called "Tax"
- OpenOffice.org refuses to open it (but that's another bug)
A little bit of debugging shows that yahoo is returning:
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=Tax Assignment.doc\r\n
whereas gmail returns
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="Tax Assignment.doc"\r\n
It works fine with gmail, so I'm assuming this is the problem.
Not sure if yahoo is even being spec compliant, but it seems like something that
would be straightforward to work around and would save a lot of annoyance for
(This is firefix-1.0.4-2 by the way)
We just updated the Firefox version in Fedora/development from 2.0 to a 3.0
pre-release version, which improves performance, memory usage, and fixes many
bugs and crashes.
Closing as CANTFIX since we aren't fixing bugs filed against 2.0 now that 3.0 is
in. If this bug is still present in rawhide using a Firefox 3.0 version, please
re-open this bug.
Thanks and Happy Holidays
