Created attachment 726512 [details] [diff] [review]
add-pref-savePageAsDocumentTitle.patch

People have strong opinions about "Save Page As" changes in bug 254139, so add a pref so power users can revert to the old behavior.

I added the new "browser.download.savePageAsDocumentTitle" pref to firefox.js. Are firefox.js's pref definitions included in B2G, Metro, and Android's prefs?

I would rather not add a pref. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/saveasfilename/ can be used for users who want to change the behavior.

C'est la vie.. :) My concern was that the out-of-tree addon would bitrot, while this pref only needed to disable one line of code.
