0.9.8 + 0.9.9:
sometimes web-pages - which are loaded completely - can't be safed (html +
pictures) - although all other pages off the same web-side can,  (they can e.g.
be safed with Opera 3.62 and i can't see any suspicious meta tag about this. It
even happens on !!)
One look in cache dir shows, that the mentioned page is not there either.
Sorry, but i can't find any systematics in this that could help you to locate
the bug.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. i can't find any regular behaviour

What do you mean by "can't be saved"?  Is there an error message?  Or do things
look OK and nothing gets saved?

I can verify this with build 2002041203 on Windows ME when I try to save a page
that's been generated by a bookmarklet. Like the linked images one from that creates a new page
where each thumbnail/link is followed by the image it links to.

When the images are linked by thumbnails some browsers only look in their cache
and don't request them too, but I digress.
When I select 'Save Page As...' from the toolbar or the rightclick menu, nothing
CT -- the bug you describe (with bookmarklet-generated pages) is fixed in
current trunk builds....

Re: #6

Not in latest 2002062304 or latest-trunk 2002062408 I just upgraded to.. Maybe I
need to make a new profile. :/
On Windows ME:
1. Uninstall Mozilla
2. Reboot
3. Install Mozilla trunk 2002070504, creating a new test profile
4. Go to
5. Use the linked images bookmarklet mentioned above
6. Try to save the newly generated page
7. Verify nothing happens.
Found a workaround: Choose Edit Page instead of Save As and save it in Composer.
I think it's very likely that this is a duplicate of Bug 158598 - I got the same
JavaScript Console error as in 158598 when I selected Save As on the linked
images bookmarklet page.
Re: comment 10

Ed, you're right! I changed my linked images bookmarklet to

javascript:(function(){var x,z,i; function linkIsSafe(u) { if
(u.substr(0,7)=='mailto:') return false; if (u.substr(0,11)=='javascript:')
return false; return true; } function linkIsImage(u) { var spd, ext;
spd=u.split('.'); if (spd.length > 0) { ext = spd[spd.length-1].toLowerCase();
if (ext=='gif' || ext=='jpg' || ext=='png' || ext=='mng') return true; } return
false; } function
s;} z =; z.writeln('<html><head><title>Linked
Images</title></head><body><p>Images linked to by ' + htmlEscape(location.href)
+ ':</p><hr>'); x = document.links; for (i = 0; i < x.length; ++i)
if(linkIsSafe(x[i].href) && linkIsImage(x[i].href)) z.writeln('<p>' +
x[i].innerHTML + ' (' + htmlEscape(x[i].href) + ')<br><img src="' +
x[i].href.replace(/"/g, '&quot;') + '"></p>'); z.writeln('<hr></body></html>');
z.close(); })();

and it worked. Thanks!
