Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.15) Gecko/20110303 Firefox/3.6.15 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0E)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.15) Gecko/20110303 Firefox/3.6.15 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0E)

Conveniently, the URL shown shows line numbers of Perl code.  Do a "save as ...", then open the file that you just saved.  You will see that there are multiple instances of, say, lines marked 34 through 50, or 216 through 223, or, ..., or some other duplication.  It is not always consistent.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the URL in the Firefox web browser,
2. Save Page As - Web Page, complete
3. Open the file you just saved.
4. Visually, scan for duplicated chunks of lines.
Actual Results:  
I just did it again.  This time, shown lines numbered 1 through 3 are duplicated.  So is the chunk 34 through 50.  So is the chunk numbered 216 through 223.  So is the chunk with lines numbered 53 through 214.


Expected Results:  
I expected the file to be saved without corruption.

Duplicated information is not terrible, but the bug of course should still be fixed.
