This bug cropped up in galeon. Full text from the original bug at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=55459 below: ------------------ Basically what happens is that galeon will save a .txt file with html/pre wrappers, even if it is not an html file with that code in it. It looks like it's using the internal renderer structure and dumping it to file, instead of using the original (??). To reproduce: Go to the URL http://www.muppetlabs.com/~breadbox/software/tiny/hello.asm.txt File->save as Edit the file and notice the top line containing <html><head>, etc. Repeat with the latest mozilla nightly and notice that it saves text properly. Definately mozilla has the desired results, as people such as myself are downloading non-html files off the net and having those files contents change is a bad thing. Netscape 4.x deals with this by having a "save as type" dropdown that has the following choices for this file: source/text/postscript, and translates the source to whatever format the user chooses on the way to the disk. --------- Marco said it was a mozilla bug and that "we are using nsIWebBrowserPersist"
which mozilla version are you using (ie which one galeon embedds)? Not seeing this on windows, will try linux later.
I'm using the patched .9 debs available at ftp://ufies.org/pub/galeon/people/christophe
What method are you using to save the document with? If saveDocument then try saveURI.
This looks like it was a problem in galeon, we now use SaveURI and it works as expected, marking invalid.
