[pve-devel] [PATCH manager] ui: set file name for spice console download in chrome

When the virt-viewer file is downloaded we already set
a file name in Android, so the file type may be
recognized. Also doing this in Chrome (and Chromium
based browsers) allows users to "alyways open files of
this type". So the browser automatically opens the
console window without user interaction.
