Do you experience any other profile related problems? [bookmarks or mail gone?]

Does HELP - About Mozilla work?

Does it work with a new profile [after some browsing]?

If you experience this using Firefox then you should change the product to
FIREFOX, instead of BROWSER.
Assignee: general → firefox
Component: Browser-General → General
Product: Browser → Firefox
Version: Trunk → unspecified

Restarting browser did not help, rebooting did. It only seems to occur on and
off, haven't seen it recently, seemed to be occuring around the same time that
every time I tried to save an image it instead saved some HTML page from the
site the image was from, also did that with a save page as, about half the
images instead were the main page of the site, and any image I tried to save
after that did the same. Went back to the 4-10 build shortly after, since the
download errors were quite annoying anyway, so I doubt I'll see it again.

May be related to the download errors bug
(http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=240367), as I saw several before it
began, at which point I did not see any more.

It seems that the html file saved instead of image may be unrelated to
about:cache vanishing, as it is occuring with the 4-10 nightly, and about:cache
is still available. Only occurs on some sites, usually member only areas, and
only if the file in question is not in the cache. After the html file is saved,
if the exact same save is attempted again, it works correctly, saving the
correct file.
