Disk full problems

I've checked the src:epiphany-browser, src:mozilla-firefox, src:galeon
BTS pages and found them to be clean of "disk full" bugs, but looking
at the src:mozilla page pushed me to list the "disk full" related
problems I saw in Galeon which were really Mozilla's fault:
- downloads: downloads are stored in /tmp while downloading and moved
to the destination folder when the download finishes, which causes
. /tmp is too small to hold the file, the user complaints because the
file shouldn't be stored there
. the destination is too small to hold the file, user complaints
because a zero-sized file is created and the download is lost
(it seems this is worlked around in Galeon or fixed in Mozilla, but
some bugs are still open on that type of problem)
- cookies and passwords might be deleted on disk full too, and since
these are handled by Mozilla right now, it is a Mozilla problem again
and causes data loss to the user.
Upstream seems to have checked in a fix targetted at the 1.8.x
series of Mozilla, see
Right now, I think it's okay to keep the "important" severity and
reassign / merge in the Mozilla BTS.
