If there are too much image error, these pop-up alerts are really annoying and take much time to clear. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open this page: http://www.tianya.cn/publicforum/content/filmtv/1/13009.shtml *Warning* this page is very big (approx 4.21M) and may take several minutes to load. 2.File - Save Page As - Save Actual Results: Dozens of "Download Error" alerts keep popping up. Expected Results: Pop up one dialogue box which contains all error messages.
I'm having this issue and I believe I found out why I think the file name paths being created are too long. So firefox spits out a bunch of errors for every single file. This needs to be fixed and is hell of a lot annoying. Confirmed.

Created attachment 707015 [details] screenshot I could not reproduce the problem with the empty error messages, so here is an updated screenshot.
Attachment #706878 - Attachment is obsolete: true
The website from the description, http://www.tianya.cn/publicforum/content/filmtv/1/13009.shtml, isn't available anymore. It redirects me to: http://bbs.tianya.cn/post-filmtv-13009-1.shtml. Saving this webpage worked as expected, with Firefox 18.0.1 (build ID: 20130116073211) and on the latest Nightly also (build ID: 20130128030943). With http://www.nw-news.de/news/nachrichten/7772670_Konflikte_Syrien.html, the saving worked smoothly, both on Firefox 18.0.1 and latest Nightly. With http://www.nw-news.de/, I did see the problem with the empty error messages that kept on appearing on the screen, even though I kept on closing them, both on Firefox 18.0.1 and the latest Nightly. (eventually the messages stopped appearing, and in the library window the download was listed as failed)
I get the same behavior as detailed in comment 4, with Firefox 19 beta 3. (build ID: 20130123083802)
