Build ID: 20111104165243

Steps to reproduce:

I tried to save an article from the New York Times. Clicked on File, Save Page As...


Actual results:

The article appears to be starting to download, but instead I get a "Download Error" message that says: 
C:\Users\Luis\Desktop\NYT Test-files\273680042.js could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator."


Expected results:

I should have been able to save the article to my computer, as I have done for years. At first I thought that the NY Times had implemented a widget to block downloading pages. However, I am able to save articles without a problem using MS-IE, Safari, and Chrome.

Good day Luis, i cant reproduce this under openSUSE 12.1, KDE 4.7.2 using Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:12.0a2) Gecko/20120211 Firefox/12.0a2. 

I think its time to upgrade the browser to a newer version.
