Should be bug 383716. Seems like it's trying to save chrome://global/skin/plugins.css and it doesn't work because the file doesn't exist.

Btw, this only fails on save web page complete when it tries to fetch the css file.

Shawn: What should happen if we save a page and only some of the files fail?

We should try to save as much as we can.  Not sure what to do in the UI, but in the case of saving a webpage, chances are high that it'll show up the same as it did when they were viewing the page.
