If you want to save a downloaded file in a directory where a file with the same name already exists, Mozilla refuses to replace the existing file. Steps to reproduce this: 1. download and save a file from an arbitrary webpage (if it is of known content, select 'save to disk' of course). 2. do this again with the same file. Again choose save to disk, use the default name or change it to the name of an existing file in that dir, and click 'save'. A popup appears asking if you really want to replace this file. Of course you want to, so you click yes. Nothing happens, the popup disappears and the 'enter file name' dialog is still there. Found with build 2000082108 m18 on winNT
