using 7/10 build of netscape

1) launch netscape
2) Jump to above URL
3) Using context menu, select "Save As"

it goes ahead and saves a blank file. we should be throwing
a frame alert panel shouldn't we? see 4.x behavior.
actually Simon and I found instances where in 4.x the Save As
is dimmed out when you're at a framed site.

I think the real problem here is not saving the file, but trying to load a local 
file that contains unresolved references to frameset documents. In this case, 
loading the local file in the browser will throw up a 'file not found' alert for 
each bad frameset, but Mozilla just silently shows a blank page.
Summary: Save As in context menu should throw a frame alert panel → Loading a frameset with broken frame links should put up alerts

If I set that frameset and then load the file I get two "file not found" alerts.
 What is this bug about, exactly?
