When I download a file using firefox it is saved as user_u:object_r:tmp_t it should be user_u:object_r:user_home_t I have a folder which is shared using samba and when I download a file into it I had to restorecon it in order to let the windows clients (and linux) see it.
I am using FC5 x86_64 with selinux-policy-targeted-2.2.40-1.fc5
note: I am using a 32bit firefox build

Are you saving it to the /tmp directory? If you are it will get saved as tmp_t. Since files default to the context of their parent directory.

If you them mv /tmp/download.file ~/

You will maintain tmp_t.

If you use cp /tmp/download.file ~/

It will get user_home_t.


no I simply download it to a dir in home which is labeled user_u:object_r:user_home_t

If you download a large file, can you see it "growing" in your home dir,
or does it appear all at once?

I suspect firefox downloads it to a temp dir and moves it to your home
directory when done.


yes here I tyred to download a kernel from kernel.org to Desktop:
-rw------- dragoran dragoran user_u:object_r:tmp_t linux-
(while download was running)
after download it still was tmp_t

firefox-bin is lib_t
system_u:object_r:lib_t          /usr/lib/firefox-
(don't know if this matters)

still not fixed with lastest updates...
any idea why the context of the files is forced to tmp_t ?
I am not sure we can fix this without modifying firefox. Is this happening on smaller files that you download?
I do not see this behaviour on my machine.
