 Hi Martin,

  Not likely, as audio input is not implemented in chromium yet... see here:

 Thanks again Dave! This one seems better - everything is downloaded with -rw-rw-rw- (0666) now. Would be interested if you could try Alex's idea too (which makes sense for OS/2)..

 Dave,

  Thanks for producing this new build! Everything I've tried so far produces '-rw-r--r-- root root' when downloaded whether .zip file, .exe file or .txt file. But it doesn't add up - if you are trying to use '0666' to set permissions, that should produce '-rw-rw-rw- root root'. '-rw-r--r--' = 0644, doesn't it? If you are going for a 'one size fits all' approach, maybe 0777 is the way to go to cover any possibility...

Regards,

 Dave,

 Just to check for comparison, I downloaded a zip file from Hobbes using the QT5 Simplebrowser. The permissions on it were: '-rw-r--r-- root root'. Maybe that makes the most sense for downloaded files? I would think '-rwxr-xr-x root root' would also be appropriate for an executable file. And it seems from your example above that is what the exceptions you mention show too.

 Dariusz,

  I also see these frequently with SeaMonkey, but so far not with any other software (I do use PMMail and AOO).

 Hi Dariusz,

 Tried using libcx_setuid=1, and it seems to work in that when a file is downloaded with SeaMonkey it now has the permission: '-rw------- DaveM root'. But that really doesn't solve the issue - what I want is for the files to be accessible to anyone who uses the share, not just me. In other words, the permissions need to be: '-rw-rw-rw- root root'. Only SeaMonkey can set that at download time (or use 'chmod' to change it afterwards).

Regards,

Dave,

  I would think at least readable and writable by everyone, and executable too if an executable file, but I am no expert on this for sure.. thanks for even considering fixing this!

 Chowning the SeaMonkey executable didn't help - it still saves files as '-rw------- root root'. When I think about it, probably by design the only way to deal with this is chmod the files to give them universal access. Too bad can't get SeaMonkey to do it when downloading...

 Well... not quite. I went to the server and checked the permissions on the file I copied, and they are still -rw-------. So that means only someone logged on as root can get to them (and show then as -rw-rw-rw-). I'll try Dave's approach next...

 Thanks for the tips guys! I used Dariusz' approach and indeed, if I log on to the SAMBA server (that is running on an OS/2 machine) share as 'root' (instead of my typical user ID), then when copied the file is saved with read and write permissions for anyone else too. The user ID I was using was also in the 'admin' group (as is 'root'), but I guess that is not enough...

 Hi everyone,

When downloading files using SeaMonkey 2.42.9esr, the downloaded files are always marked like these are when running 'ls -l':

[D:\junk\dl]ls -l
total 55308
-rw------- 1 root root 28717328 Jan  5 22:26 Bluegriffon_1-1-1r2.zip
-rw------- 1 root root  3688568 Jan  7 15:49 CUSeeMe2_1-9c.zip
-rw------- 1 root root    27946 Jan  8 08:23 ndpsmb-3.7.3-samba411-20220108.zip

 showing they can be read and written by the owner (root) only. Not a big deal in OS/2, because it pays no attention to these permissions anyway. But things get 'interesting' when you copy these files to a SAMBA server, because it DOES pay attention to these, and so from OS/2 if you try to move, copy, rename, open, or execute one of these files on the server, it doesn't work!

 Is there a setting in SeaMonkey that can change this? Or in OS/2? Why is SeaMonkey doing this? Up to now, I just do a 'chmod 777' on the files before copying them to the server, but would really like to not have to do that. Looking for some enlightenment here...

 Hi Roberto,

  On my computer DOS windows do not work, so I tried in a DOS full screen session, but when I run it I immediately get a message that says 'Overflow' and it stops. Not sure what else I can do...

 Thanks, Dave - great idea about putting the cache on the RAM drive, I'll definitely try that.

 I also see these Trap0003 in JFS every once in a while (maybe 3 times a year?). Always after chkdsk runs, some cache files for SeaMonkey are either restored or not. Always thought it was a SeaMonkey problem, but maybe not?

Hi Roberto,

 I use SeaMonkey (rather unstable) and would like to try this, but it's not clear how to use it. Can you describe how to use and what it does? Also, does it matter what version of SeaMonkey 2.42.9 ESR to use? Dave Y has made a few, and so has Bitwiseworks and I think even Arca Noae. Thanks for any hints...

Regards,
