Description Billy Coutsis 2010-05-12 03:10:47 UTC
Description of problem:
Right-clicking on a PNG file and selecting Save Image As from the context menu causes the Save Image dialog's "Name" field to have the incorrect filename and extension.

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

How reproducible:
Sometimes. Happens on some web sites, but not others (eg. the PNG images of a randomly selected website, http://www.fnordware.com/superpng/samples.html).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the following URL with Firefox: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/teams/art.gnome.org/backgrounds/ABSTRACT-CrunchyBranch_1680x1050.png
2. Right-click the PNG image and click Save Image As.

Actual results:
a. Observe that the Save Image dialog's "Name" field has "download.htm".
b. Press Save, and observe that the downloaded file is actually a PNG file.

Expected results:
a. The Save Image dialog's "Name" field should be the basename of the PNG image; in this case, "ABSTRACT-CrunchyBranch_1680x1050.png".

Additional info:
Gnome's Appearance Properties dialog has a "Get more backgronds online" hyperlink, which when clicked opens http://art.gnome.org/backgrounds/. So, Fedora's UI is suggesting a site which doesn't work well with Fedora's default  web browser. This doesn't look good. Therefore, this bug should probably block the 'fitandfinish' tracker bug, but I can't see how to do this.

I was able to reproduce this bug in F13 RC2 64-bit using the following steps:

1) rm -rf ~/.mozilla ### or make a backup
2) Open Firefox
3) File -> New Tab
4) Open art.gnome.org
5) Click Backgrounds, then click "Go" for Crunchy Branch @ 1680x1050
6) Try the Save Image As

Comment 2 Billy Coutsis 2010-05-12 04:00:47 UTC
Thanks, Paul.

Also, note that DOES NOT reproduce the bug:
  1) rm -rf ~/.mozilla ### or make a backup
  2) Open Firefox
  3) File -> New Tab
  4) Open http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/teams/art.gnome.org/backgrounds/ABSTRACT-CrunchyBranch_1680x1050.png
  5) Try the Save Image As

Regarding responsibility for the bug: if the bug is with the website (see http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://art.gnome.org/backgrounds), then I believe that this should still be handled under Fedora Fit and Finish, since Fedora links to art.gnome.org as previously mentioned.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2010-11-03 15:02:58 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '12'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2010-12-03 14:47:42 UTC
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
