[Bug 230627] Re: firefox wants to open PDF file with itself

I just had a test link one one of my own servers. Unfortunately the link
is only accessible over SSL with a valid username. Therefore I tried to
debug it myself. First I wanted to see the HTTP headers, so I connected
with http over ssh instead of https and ran wireshark. Surprisingly
enough, the file opened fine this time. So I switched SSL back on and it
stopped working again. Then I loosened the restrictions on the URL in
question so that it can be accessed without a valid username -- and it
worked again. When I turned on the authentication again, it even
continued to work, but I am very sure that all settings are exactly as
they were at the beginning. Now I am no longer able to reproduce it with
this link.

This seems to be quite an elusive problem. I'll get back as soon as I
find another example.
