Description

Created attachment 8795729 [details]
Part of Addon: contentAreaUtils.js

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/43.0.2357.130 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

Hi!

Installed the Mozilla Addon "MAFF - Mozilla Archive Format" in Firefox and Iceweasel on Linux Debian 8.5 (latest), C-Locale, Ext3/4 FS (UTF8  - XFCE4 Shell) and Server Filesystem BTRFS. 

Can not anymore store most of the websites I made a snapshot of them due to characters like "|", ":"




Actual results:

The websites I made a snapshot did not save...


Expected results:

Websites should be saved in their native name.
The problematic characters should either be replaced - e.g. by default or by an Option menu in the Addon). 

Located the filname save method in the Addon and made a patch so that I can save (unfortunately till next Addon release)

It could be an extension issue.
Did you report the issue to the MAFF devs? http://maf.mozdev.org/feedback.html
