When the user chooses to save a page which is currently displayed in the
browser, they have an option to save the page as 'complete', i.e not only the
html but also any images, CSS, .js, etc that belongs with the web page. There is
no corresponding option when saving a link, i.e when saving a link target which
is an html file, the user has no choice and can only save the html.

This can be frustrating for example when the page has specifically been saved
for later offline viewing and all that the user sees is plain text with images,
formatting, etc missing.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Expected Results:  
WebBrowserPersist (probably) needs to be modified to save not only the main
document, but also walk the tree and save other files that belong with it.
It performs something similar when there is a document object to start with, so
when it is saving link targets, it could be modified to do the same.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

how can this still be unconfirmed...
Confirming, but we have no real plans to do this.  In particular, there is no
way to tell when the option should be offered.
