Twice each on two different web sites (blog pages with lots of comments), I tried to save the page I was viewing by doing File -> Save As from the menu bar. Result: Firefox crashed. The crash-reporting helper app came up all four times, so whoever receives those reports should have all four of mine.
Type about:crashes in the location and post some crash IDs (bp-...), please. We need the crash signatures.
about:crashes shows three IDs caused by this bug: 0b835280-fb63-4cc6-ab71-4fa040900b1d bp-f8466702-d5f8-442f-9648-d5cd82120901 bp-7ffc3c30-edf3-4a92-aa92-8f4be2120901
Does it happen in Safe Mode (see https://support.mozilla.org/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode)?
No, it doesn't seem to happen in Safe Mode. Also, the save seems to have completed before the crash.

After upgrading to 15.0.1 this problem appears to have gone away. If it comes back I'll look at the add-ons, then maybe reopen.

This looks to me like an out of memory issue. I would be very surprised if bug 787743 has actually changed anything with regard to how much memory we consume.
I'm having this issue with 16.0.1. The problem also occurs in safe mode. It only seems to happen with "save web page, complete", not with html only.
qbsmd, can you provide a crash ID from about:crashes?
