leading_period.patch

nsHelperAppDlg.js checks with the user to remove a leading period file, removes it and then saves the file without the period.

Patch to check here and only remove the file if the final name matches.

What's the current policy on this as well? According to this bug, all leading periods should be removed when saving, but none of the paths in toolkit/content/contentAreaUtills.js seem to do so? So it can save leading period files that way.
