When downloading a file, the save file dialog first asks where to save the file. Normally, the filename is filled in to some reasonable default, and the directory is set to the last directory to which something was downloaded. However, the "save" button is greyed out and useless. Interestingly, if you change directories, the save button will then work. Hence, if I click on a subdirectory and then on the parent directory, I can save just as I would have expected to be able to initially. In case it is relevant, my window manager is twm. I am not running Gnome or KDE.
please report detailed info to reproduce. Build ID, URL, directory path.
Build ID: 2001110108 OS: Linux Window Manager: twm Desktop Manager: none shift-click on any URL that doesn't end in a /, so that there is a default file name (such as http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/votehelp.html above). My default directory is my home directory. Everything looks normal, except that the Save button is greyed out. If that doesn't do the same thing for you, then try doing it with no window manager. If that makes a difference, then it's probably related to bugs 78928 and 76854.
Possibly referring to the fact that the save button doesn't enable itself until you click in the filename field, even if a default filename is given. I see this on Linux, but not on Windows (probably because on Windows the default save chooser is used). As soon as you click on the filename field though the button enables itself and you can save as normal.
->bryner Brian, this looks to be a Linux filepicker thing. Maybe fixed now?

sounds like the case where the window isn't getting focused (still haven't figured out why that is happening) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 98480 ***
