savetest.html

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140506152807

Steps to reproduce:

html page (savetest.html) on my local system look like this:

<html><head>
<title>SaveTest</title>
</head>
<body><p>The content of the document......</p></body></html> 

When the page is displayed, I hit cntl-s to save and select save as html only



Actual results:

Outwardly I get the download indicator that a download is taking place, but
my source file (savetest.html) has been deleted.


Expected results:

preferably the file should have been saved, or at least some indication of a problem.
It should never have been deleted.
