In the Firefox 8 beta there is a bug with attachments - they download as "index.php" instead of their original filename. The contents of the downloaded file are the original attachment file. The bug do not exist in other Firefox version or browsers.

P.S. Confirmed on SMF 2.0.1 with different themes, including the default. I cleaned the cache of my browser.

this was not included in the 2.0.1 upgrade, so it is expected that it would not be fixed.

Hi there,

users that have recently updated to Firefox 8.0 get all zip-files downloaded as "index.php".

Can someone confirm this?

Confirmed.

Firefox is crap. ;)

Right-click>"Save link as" it is, then.


Tomcraft

Always good not to be alone with a problem. :D

Do you think this will be solved in SMF or is this a bug in Firefox 8.0?

most likely i think it is an smf issue but may not be fixed until the next security patch is released which may be sometime, unless the devs feel otherwise. there is also possibility that it may not be fixed in the security patch up to the devs either way.

I looked at FF's MIME settings, to see if it could be changed.

But, Firefox, being the dog that it is, it seems that you can't, as far as I can see.

Not just zip file, also .pdf file.

Maybe all attachment downloads?

What browser do you like to use?

Live wins. :)

I got pissed off with Firefox, coz every time there's a damned upgrade, none of the addons worked.

Never had that problem with Opera.

It seems a lot quicker, to me, too.

Tomcraft

I have a solution for both of your problems. ;)

Addons not working anymore: Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Fix download-problem:

Apply patch to "/Sources/Display.php" as the "/Source/Attachment.php" doesn't exist: 0004825: Firefox attachment Content-Disposition bug

Code (php) Select
// Different browsers like different standards...
if ($context['browser']['is_firefox'])
header('Content-Disposition: ' . $disposition . '; filename*="UTF-8\'\'' . preg_replace('~&#(\d{3,8});~e', '$fixchar(\'$1\')', $utf8name) . '"');

Tomcraft

Here is the fix for installation through the package manager.

Ah yes the utter nightmare of using version numbers to determine compatibility... why don't they check for functions? Makes sense considering FF's new release schedule.
