1. Open attachment 8714031 [details] from bug 1244482 in a new tab.
2. Save the page locally:  Press Ctrl+S, then click "Save" in modal window.
3. Open the page saved in Step 2 in a new tab
4. Compare text in <textarea> on pages from Step 1 and from Step 3

AR: In original .html file (Step 1) there was no "\n"s in textarea.
    In saved .html file (Step 3) there's "\n" after each 5 words in textarea. In the source code.
 I often save bugreports for the future in a text form to file them later. So I basically have to
 edit all text again. That is unacceptable behavior.   v_v

ER: Either A or B
 A) There should be no additional symbols (such as "\n"s) on saved page.
 B) The browser should provide an alert that tells the user to use .txt files in such cases.
