This works here with SeaMonkey 2.0.2pre nightlies - Can you please state what version you see this with?
You posted this with a Firefox version, which is nothing SeaMonkey developers are responsible for.

It's version 2.0.1, file 4.42.0.0
French contributed build of 06-Dec-2009 19:33 from
http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/releases/2.0.1/win32/fr/

It was indeed posted with SeaMonkey: I override the useragent string with the latest FireFox one to keep certain sites happy (grrr...)

1) It isn't a contributed build, but an official one.
2) Overriding the UA string is the worst possible way to do this, adding a general.useragent.extra.notfirefox='NOT Firefox/3.5.5' is _way_ better and works just as well.

For the bug, I can't confirm it in German or English builds, I can select the different types of files in the dialog that comes up with File > Save Page As...

Maybe I haven't understood the above: I have tried it but it doesn't work: the site concerned will not talk to me if there isn't "Firefox" in the useragent string.

I guess I wasn't clear - that's just the point: _no_ file dialog comes up, it just saves immediately to the default folder.

When you set browser.download.useDownloadDir to true (via about:config)
or set a specific download directory in your prefs, then "Save Page As..."
will turn into just "Save Page".

No idea whether that's the correct behaviour. But it would sure be nice
to have the choice even when a fixed download directory is specified.

OK - thanks. I never touched 'browser.download.useDownloadDir' but it was indeed set to 'true'.
So I've set it to 'false' and I've got the file dialog back.

Well you can: I have always set my 'browser.download.dir' in 'user.js' (and it still is), and with 'browser.download.useDownloadDir' == 'false' I've got the best of both worlds.
