Changing os to all. Nominating 
Save as file does not bring up the file selection dlg only when you are trying
to save replied or forwarded message

Save as file brings up the file selection dlg from the 3 pane, stand alone
message window.

Here is the error:

SaveAsFile from XUL
* Call to xpconnect wrapped JSObject produced this error:  *
[Exception... "'[JavaScript Error: "editorShell.saveDocument is not a function"
{file: "chrome://messenger/content/messengercompose/
MsgComposeCommands.js" line: 1677}]' when calling method:

An error occurred executing the cmd_saveAsFile command

Looks like the editor api as changed! reassign to varada

Save As->File also does not work when composing a brand-new mail
message started with File->New Message (in Linux build 2001123108).

That is, the bug exists not just when starting with Reply
or a forwarded message.

(File->Save As->File... does not pop up a dialog; nothing on stdout/stderr)

If you see the summary, I did include newmssg in which means it save as file is
not working when new message compose.

Adding nsbeta1 keyword to all regressions so they *get some love* and attention.

Fixing a broken feature seems worth getting into 0.9.8 so moving back.
Keywords: nsbeta1 → nsbeta1+
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.9 → mozilla0.9.8
a=blizzard on behalf of drivers for 0.9.8
