Description Peter Bieringer 2005-10-04 21:10:13 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
In case a new folder was created and changed into during browsing through folders for storing a file, the filename was removed from input field.
Therefore one has to remember the filename or have to repeat from beginning (without creation of folder, because it already exists now)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change download settings to ask every time where to store the file
2. Select an URL for downloading
3. Select store to filesystem
4. Browse to folder
5. Create new folder
6. Change into it
7. Save file

Actual Results:  Won't work, because filename field is empty after changing into folder

Expected Results:  Ergonimic working...

This problem exists also in Mozilla.  

Comment 2 Jeff Spirko 2005-12-06 21:28:36 UTC
This problem also exists in gedit.
That makes me think it's a GTK2 problem.

It's definitely gnome-wide.

I didn't see this bug when I posted 


Go there for a workaround that works as long as the parent dir of the new dir is
not otherwise empty.

BTW: it's solved in FC5, and I no longer use FC4

Comment 5 Peter Bieringer 2006-06-06 09:52:18 UTC
Ooops, closing bug was not my intention...I do not expect any gnome update for
FC4, so I changed to cantfix.
