Description Max Semenik 2011-02-20 08:03:09 UTC
Created attachment 8177 [details]

Chrome 6.0.466.0 dev/Win always saves with double extension although in UI it looks like everything's going to be OK (see attachment). "Hide extensions for known file types" system option doesn't seem to affect this.
Comment 1 Happy-melon 2011-03-20 19:03:23 UTC
Confirmed variously on Chrome 10.0.648 (current stable) and 11.0.696 (current dev).
Comment 2 Happy-melon 2011-03-22 17:34:39 UTC
But *not* confirmed with Chrome 10.0.648 with Windows Vista.  OS issue?
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2011-03-27 20:43:42 UTC
I cannot reproduce this with Chrome 10.0.648 on Windows XP. The file auto-saves as "LocalSettings.php" in my downloads dir... if I right-click on the link and select 'save file as', I see "LocalSettings" as the suggested filename, with .php in the extension box. Files get saved as expected as "LocalSettings.php", no double extension.

Changing Chrome settings to require prompting me instead of auto-saving to %HOME%\My Documents\Downloads doesn't seem to affect this, I still get the expected behavior.

Might depend on OS settings.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2011-03-27 20:46:53 UTC
I'm going to provisionally close this out; quick googly search seems to indicate that this is still sometimes a Chrome issue, but depends on vague mysterious things that no one can pinpoint -- possibly on what other applications have claimed ownership of file types or some such horror that's unpredictable.
