Downloaded folder bug RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    After connecting to WHS from a remote location via Firefox and an IP, I downloaded the "Home Server Connector Software" folder from the Software folder. When the file/folder arrived it was named Home with no extension. I had to add  .zip  to the file name to open it. I suspect this may be do to having blank spaces in the folder name. Is this a known issue or a bug?

    The Computer tab was also missing and I didn't even know it.
    Now I can see the remote desktops I had setup.

    Two workarounds:

    Open WHS in a IE tab in Firefox.
    IE Tab | Firefox Add-ons | Mozilla Corporation
    https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1419/

    Or open WHS in IE.

  • This is a known issue with WHS and Firefox. It's been mentioned in the forum a few times, and there's a bug report on Connect about the issue as well.. You should go there and validate the bug.
