corrupted zip-files after downloading with IE7. FF is ok.

Postby carsten888 » Tue Aug 12, 2008 9:10 am

On my site I offer Joomla-extensions for download in zip-format. Some users report that when downloading with IE7 the zip became corrupt. Downloading with FF works fine.

example http://www.joomlapi.com/pages-and-items/
the bot's downloads fine, the com's become corrupt.

I tried:
- recompressing the zip
- other application for zip
- downloading the file with ftp and checked the file is not corrupt online, it was fine.
- in Firefox all zip's download fine and are not corrupt, so file seems good.
- searched for 2 hours only to find others with this issue, and it's not resolved by far.

seems like a bug in IE7.
But not a consistent one, as there are 4 zips on the page, 2 download fine, the other 2 don't. Got the same problem with some other extensions on the same site.

anyone has any suggestions (besides telling people to use Firefox)? I'm totally stuck.

Hi,

Which version of Joomla! are we talking about? You posted in a wrong forum, i'd like to move it to a correct one ;)

not any particular version of joomla.

I posted this in the coding q and a because it is something other coders must have encountered.

Sounds reasonable... I'll leave it here then.
