10.5.7, Safari 4 Beta, and .JPG/.JPEG

I'm fairly certain this is new to the most recent Safari 4 beta (the second version - the one you can download after installing Mac OS X 10.5.7), but when I drag a file named "image.jpg" from a website, it names it "image.jpg.jpeg."

If I use the contextual menu or view the image and hit cmd-s to save the image, the supplied name doesn't have the superfluous ".jpeg" extension.

This appears to be a Safari issue, not a Mac OS X issue, as dragging files works as expected (no extra extension) in OmniWeb.

  1. It's not new. Safari 4 Beta 1 has been doing that to me for awhile now, and it's kind of annoying.

  2. Even more annoying because lots of sites that's I'm saving to reupload to via HTTP POST (myspace [ugh]) don't thing ".jpeg" is a valid image extension. Sigh…

  3. I'm just guessing, but it seems to be a WebKit problem, and not just Safari. I'm seeing the same behavior in NetNewsWire since installing Safari 4.

  4. I am having the exact same issue. Terribly annoying!!!
