Description Nathan M 2005-08-30 17:21:45 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
This may be a GNOME issue and not a Firefox issue.  When downloading files using Firefox, they are sent to the Desktop in the filesystem.  However they are only visible in a console.  They are visible by ls as either root or my username.  No problem there.  However, they do not show on the Desktop nor do they show if I open my Desktop folder from my Home directory.  Selecting "Show Hidden Files" still does not reveal these files.  I have not tried this will ftp downloads, but I can confirm it's an issue with http downloads.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open FireFox
2. Go to http://www.compulab.co.il/armgx-developer.htm
3. Download any files off that page.

Actual Results:  Noticed the files do not appear on the Desktop, however are visible in a console / shell.

Expected Results:  The files should have appeared on the Desktop.

Bug can be reproduced on ftp downloads as well.  I just noticed the same results
downloading a kernel off of ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-08-30 20:11:15 EDT
If you click on the desktop then CTRL-R, does the downloaded file appear?
Comment 3 Nathan M 2005-08-30 23:58:50 EDT
Yes it does, could you explain this situation a bit?
Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2006-08-14 08:05:54 EDT
Old bug that is probably fixed by now (it works for me in both FC5 and rawhide).
If you can reproduce this with FC5, please reopen.
