            Bug ID: 228566
           Summary: [WPE][GTK] .asc file extension is appended to filename
                    of text/plain downloads
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKitGTK
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
          Reporter: mcatanzaro at gnome.org

Our MIMETypeRegistry::preferredExtensionForMIMEType returns "asc" for text/plain, possibly because "asc" sorts alphabetically ahead of all other possible file extensions for text/plain, and we just pick the first one. E.g. try downloading the backtrace from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1985053 with WebKit and note that it gets named "backtrace.asc" indicating that it is a GPG signature. But if downloaded with Firefox, it just gets named "backtrace" which is the intended result.

I don't know how to fix it, but we don't need to, because we don't really want to append any file extension for text/plain anyway. That's just annoying. If I download a file named "backtrace" then I don't want it renamed to "backtrace.txt". That would be expected on Windows, but certainly not from WebKitGTK. So I think it's reasonable to have a special case for text/plain.
