You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
After the installation of new firefox, handling files with special types (say,
pdf) does not work any more -- on the second invokation of firefox by a user.
There is no reaction if a link to such a file is clicked or if it is typed into
the URL field.
Steps to Reproduce:
0. (remove firefox and firfox personal configuration for a clean experiment)
1. apt-get install firefox
2. firefox a.pdf
3. firefox a.pdf
2. the first time it suggests to open a.pdf with xpdf or save it.
3. the second time -- no reaction.
it should suggest to call an external program or save it to disk. But no menu
This is firefox bug 298478 and it affects more than just pdf downloads. I can
confirm that the bug is fixed in the 20050711 firefox build.
Looks like firefox-1.0.5-alt2.cvs includes the fix for mozilla/firefox bug
firefox-1.0.5-alt2.cvs works fine.
