Description Adrián Chaves (Gallaecio) 2012-03-04 09:42:41 UTC
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686) AppleWebKit/534.34 (KHTML, like Gecko) rekonq Safari/534.34
Build Identifier: 0.9.0

When I right-click a link and then click on Save Link…, it saves the target diectly to my home folder instead of asking me where to save it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open http://chakra.sourceforge.net/ccr/packages.php?O=0&K=lives&do_Search=Go in Rekonq.
2. Right click “Tarball”, and select “Save Link…”.
Actual Results:  
The linked tarball is saved to the home folder.

Expected Results:  
Rekonq should (and used to) open a dialog for you to choose the destination path.

If I directly click on the link, it works as expected.

Configure rekonq... -> General -> Always ask me where to save files

Ups, that setting must have been changed during the update from 0.8.

Anyway, I will take the opportunity to strongly suggest that “Save Link…” is changed to “Save Link”, since the ellipsis are meant to lead to another dialog, while it is possible that nothing else happens (visually on Rekonq) after you click that command.

I agree we should anyway better notify started download. You can just see a note with downloaded file name of the bottom left.

The problem is I'd like to not create a "duplicate" of plasma notification system ;)
Different solutions will be investigated during next development cycles. I'll fix the "Save Link..." text as suggested.

Pushed by adjam into branch 'master'.

Don't show dots after "Save Link" text if we are not going to ask for
download path
