User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; InfoPath.1)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/2.0.0.6

when i do file save page as i expect a file that if i reopen will look exactly the same (perhaps without pictures).

this does not happen.

instead, if i do view source, and then save that file, i get what i want.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. get a page with bars and text and most anything else you want on your screen
2. file save as to some filename
3. view source and save that file.
4. the first file you saved will look like garbage when you re-open it.
5. the second file you saved will look like you expect it to.
Actual Results:  
the file save page as file is junk.

Expected Results:  
the file save page as file should give me something that will reproduce (perhaps without pictures) the same information i had on the screen to begin with.

What type did you choose : "WebPage, complete", or "Webpage, HTML only" ? You probably want the first option. The latter one (the default) only saves the text , not CSS files, images, etc .... This means that it can look totally different from the original page. But it should be the same as saving from view-source.
