10.4: Modify how the system classifies 'safe' files
Authored by: ra5ul on Dec 28, '05 06:15:19PM

nice. after some more testing, i can affirm that this does work, but only partially (at least in my case: safari 2.0.2/416.13).

for example, using .pdf extensions w/LSRiskCategoryUnsafeExecutable did pop up the warning, but using it w/LSRiskCategoryNeutral didn't prevent pdf files from auto-opening. similarly, i couldn't get any key/string values to stop safari from auto-opening .gz or tar.gz files.

it seems like the user.plist file doesn't totally "override" the system one. where is the system config file, by the way?

If you are concerned with pdf, gz or tar.gz, why not simply disable the 'Open "safe" files after download' option in Safari?
