iGetter does not handle ampersands (&) in file names well. When it finds an ampersand it truncates the name and if it's a multi-part file, all the other parts it tries to add as if they are the same file and it displays the add as a mirror prompt. Also, the pop-up asking whether or not to add it as a mirror appears behind the pop-up that's asking to confirm the file that was dropped. In order to proceed, the window behind has to be dragged to where one of the option buttons can be pressed.

Thank you for your post.

Indeed, the following characters will truncate a download name: "#?&" (without quotes). These characters have special meaning in the URL and if used in a file name they should be encoded (i.e. & -> %26). You can read more info for example here: http://www.blooberry.com/indexdot/html/topics/urlencoding.htm.

As of mirror alert, it seems that you have added more than one URLs (most probably by the "Download with iGetter" command), which cause multiple "New URL" dialogs to appear one over another. We fixed mirror alert to appear on top, but a simple workaround for you would be if you just check "Don't ask me again" option and click on "No to all" button of the mirror dialog.

Regards,

Yes, looks like the bad is on Oron as they are not url-encoding their filenames.
