Confirmed.  It's a problem with a long path name (i.e., long dir path will trigger it too).

Firefox already does check for long paths.  There is only a small window for this problem to crop up, because once the path gets too long, then the file picker will fail with an invalid-filename error or the download manager will fail with a path-is-too-long error.  So the path has to be long enough to trip up the scanner but not so long that it gets caught by the other checks.

Confirming this bug and asking for blocking fx3. Blockage of page saving for no reason is serious fault in download manager.
