           Summary: [GTK] MIMETypeRegistry::getMIMETypeForPath returning
                    empty strings
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Gtk
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: marco.barisione at collabora.co.uk

MIMETypeRegistry::getMIMETypeForPath returns empty strings if the extension is
not known. This also causes a crash because of the CURL backend setting the
mime type to an empty string if the local file has an unknown extension.

>From the code using the function and in particular from the comment in
FrameLoaderClient::objectContentType() I think that the right behaviour is that
getMIMETypeForPath should return "application/octet-stream" upon failure, while
getMIMETypeForExtension should return an empty string.
