Downloading attachment in Firefox uses incorrect filename

Postby aebrown » Sat Oct 27, 2012 9:05 am

Using my usual Firefox browser, I tried to download a PDF attachment to a Newsletter article. But as I clicked the download icon for a file called "Project Guidelines.pdf" I was prompted to open or save a file called "Project".

Opening the PDF attachment works just fine -- the correctly named attachment is opened into Adobe Reader.

But saving the file saves a file simply called "Project" (no .pdf extension). That's not very helpful; you have to rename it to have a .pdf extension to make it work nicely.

This only seems to be a problem with Firefox; Chrome and IE work fine.

Isn't that the same problem as reported in pdf attachment not recognised? Seems to me that the space in the filename is the issue.
