E.g. I have "index.html" on my desktop, I want to save another "index.html." I rename the file on desktop to "index2.html." Upon click save, the FF will try to save the file as index2.html, although the filename box still says "index.html" Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. File->Save Page As (or any downloaded file) 2. Right click on an arbitrary file in the browse window, and rename it 3. Click save Actual Results: you will be prompted to replace the file you just renamed, even though the name shown in the "filename" box is still the downloaded file's original name. Expected Results: File would save as the shown name in the "filename" box, rather than be silently changed to the renamed name. Sounds like buffer reuse to me.
I see the same. The problem has always existed in all Firefox (and Phoenix) versions so it is likely that this has already been reported. Can't find the duplicate however.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; hu; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/184.108.40.206 I can confim this problem. Ps. If I change the "filename" in the box (after step 2.), and than set back it, it works correctly.
can anyone reproduce this on a current version of firefox? I can't speak to XP, but I can't reproduce this on vista Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.3a5pre) Gecko/20100518 Minefield/3.7a5pre
