Steps to reproduce:

I started editing the style of a project and it could not save the changes at times. The page has the http://localhost/ prefix in front as I am running it from my local machine over Apache.

I saved by clicking the save button and typed in the same file name of the CSS file and saved the file in the same folder to overwrite it.

Actual results:

A change could not be saved. (I tried saving the change and reloading the page 3 times)

Expected results:

All changes should be saved.

More over, I think the save button should write the latest changes to the original file by default. It makes more sense to have both a 'save' and a 'save as' button.

I think I have encountered this issue by mistake as I have found a copy of the file in another folder. I apologize for the inconvenience which I may have caused, but this shows the frustration the lack of a 'default' save button might cause.

Hence this bug should be marked as invalid and a bug to do what has been requested should be opened. Should I do it myself? :-)
What do you mean by "'default' save button" ?

A button to save changes without showing any dialogs. The current one only does that once in a while.

I think there should be both a 'save' and a 'save as' button or else only display a dialog to chose the location when creating a CSS file through Style Editor.

Unnecessary "Save as" dialog has been fixed by bug 699121 :)
[landed in Nightly]

Also, you can force "Save as" anytime with Ctrl-Shift-S (rather than Ctrl-S).
