User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030119 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030119 Saving something (file, image or a page - both "html only" and "complete") fails when the path or filename contains a character not in basic ascii. "Not in basic ascii" in this case means with an ascii code > 127, as far as I can tell. This includes all national characters I have tried, including å (å or "aring" in html) é (é or "eacute") and € (€ or "euro"). Reproducible with HTTP and FTP. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Find something to save. The Mozilla logo for example. 2. Save it to a folder or filename that contains a character not in ascii<127. "Mädchen" (with two dots over the 'a') for example. Actual Results: Nothing is saved. No error is indicated. The only hint that it didn't work is that the "saving..." popups doesn't popup. Expected Results: The file should have been saved... (Surprise) Some North American users might think that filing this as a "major" bug is wrong. However, all users working on non-english systems will most likely encounter it. For small files, there is basically no sign of failure and the behaviour seems unpredictable. Best matches I find are bugs 166268 and 182023.
