The TouchPad browser fails to download image files (like jpeg) that are rendered via a .php file. Are others seeing the same limitation?

An example of this is like the below BMW image.

HP really needs to fix this. Can anyone with Advanced Browser see if it is capable of saving this image? If so, I'd be inclined to purchase the app. Thanks!

Seeing it is not the problem. Can you save it?

OK, just as I figured. Now I wonder if Advanced Browser can properly save this image.

I cant get videos to download as well, when they are attached to a forum/.php. Instead of downloading the video.wmv, it will download attachment.php. Anyone know a fix?

that's because Advanced Browser uses the same crappy web engine that the stock browser uses and suffers from the same bugs as it. I started a thread to capture all the web related bugs of the TouchPad's browser.

Hi,

The problem is that he browser is not reading the file type and adding the extension. Let it download, the open of with a file manager and rename it. Don't open it in the browser or you will get error. For example, If I know that the file should be a PDF, then I rename download.PHP to download.PDF and it will open up. The patch should be easy...it Needs to parse the PHP and get the file extension of the referenced file...then just tack it on some generic name....then the mime would work fine....or should anyways.

cheers,
js
