Have you tried using Save-As instead?

'Save as' does not work with attachments...

I believe the trouble is that Firefox doesn't make it easy for extensions
to tell if the website is trying to get you to run an external application
vs just trying to give you a file to download.

I forgot to mention that when i try to download attachments with an .odt or docx extension.. it works fine...every time. hmm.... However, .doc, and .rar and other common extensions (as far as the ones i have tried) don't work.


But I'll turn the question around on you: which trac entry on

Cant access # 14. link shows the same error message :(
did you report your issue on? If it's not on the bugtracker it's nowhere.

ok.. didnt know.
