Description Kevin Suo 2014-07-07 10:40:19 UTC
When testing attachment 100193 [details] at bug 79476, I noticed the following:

when open it with libreoffice
1. If you input a wrong password then click OK, it warns "Wrong Password", but if you then click "Cancel", writer still opens the file which then showing as "plain text" unreadable codes.
2. If you click "Cancel", Writer still opens it with unreadable codes.

When click cancel, writer exits, rather than try to open it.

Yes i've seen this behaviour a few times when it doesnt understand the format of the file.

I'll copy here my comment from Bug 89320:

What we should do here is to honor the MediaDescriptor::PROP_ABORTED that written by the oox detector, and stop the detection loop (and then also make sure that GUI users won't see the filter selection dialog).

        fdo#73363: sd: fix mis-detection of Visio files as PPT
        SdFilterDetect::detect() erroneously detects all binary MSO files, and
        because the Visio types would be checked after PPT, Visio is pre-empted.
