I can't reproduce this problem on a mozilla trunk build from today on Macintosh. However, I do see that after step 4 above and opening the same file again, I can't save by just changing the page title, I need to type some text or do something else that causes the file to get "dirty." Maybe this is the problem? If you didn't really save the new title (because the shortcut key was disabled because the flag was incorrect), then opening the file again will look just as it did before. If I'm right, this bug should be about changing the title not setting the "dirty" flag. (If I'm wrong and this is a solaris problem that isn't showing up on Mac then my comments above should be put into a new bug.) Reassign to cmanske since he's done much of the work for this dialog.
The issue here is not using transaction system to set <title> and thus the document is not being marked as "modified" after user changes title. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 60129 ***
