User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0 SeaMonkey/2.14.1 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20121129191217

Steps to reproduce:

First, SeaMonkey apparently updated to 2.14.1 without even asking me!! Then...
1. I Opened a previous version of a page, found here:
2. I then went to edit this page and change the background color. 

Actual results:

No matter what it did it stayed the red of the original page. I had a further issue trying to simply edit the image size of the image on the page (see below)

Expected results:

Background color should have changed to what I set it too. I then created a new page and copy/pasted what was on the original page to the blank page. I could then edit the background color, BUT not edit the size of the image on the page! It's like once a page is save you can't edit it!

I should add too, when you go to save a new page now ".html" or ".htm" are NOT added as file extensions. You apparently have to do than manually now.

I found there was an update to 2.17.1 and I installed it. I seem to still have the same problem.

Here is the "new" page:

The actual image size of the new image on the new page is 607 x 830. The old image on the old page 690 x 835. I found something interesting the html code though, DOUBLE image sizes, see below:

The html code from the original page for the original image:
<img alt="" src="" style="border: 0px solid ; width: 690px; height: 835px;">

The html code 
<img alt="" src="" style="border: 0px solid ; width: 690px; height: 835px;" border="0" height="830" width="607">

…..why is the old image size not being replaced, and just the new size "added on" to the html code?

Not sure what is going on, but I need to get get the fixed version of this new page up. Going to have to use the (very) old version of SeaMonkey on my old Mac desktop (OS X 10.4) to edit this page.

I just used View "HTML Source" and manually edited the code to take out the extra image size text that shouldn't be there and re-saved the page. Seems to have worked. But there appears to be a bug with SeaMonkey adding "extra" image size code that it shouldn't.

There appears to be a bug with changing and saving the background color of a page as well. But I did not have time to explore that tonight. Perhaps the issue is related, where SeaMonkey is adding "extra" html code for the background color as well...
