Build ID: 20110615151330

Steps to reproduce:

I was saving a large web page (containing around 50+ images) in private browsing mode. FF version 5.0 on 64 bit windows 7.
Right click -> Save page as -> (Browsed to my pen drive) -> Save.

Actual results:

It threw an error message saying (don't remember exact words) cannot save file 20.jpg disk is full. When i clicked ok, it threw another message saying cannot save file 21.jpg disk is full....
so on it troubled me till 50.jpg

And after all that, firefox did not respond at all and I had to force kill the process.

Expected results:

Disk full should give me options : cancel and retry only.
It should mot give me error for each and every file that fails to be saved.

Firefox should not stop responding on such action.
