WFM with the latest Nightly (build ID: 20130922030201). On a Win XP 32-bit machine, with latest Nightly, I opened http://edition.cnn.com, and tried to save a link from there, in a network shared folder.
Closing this, based on comment 1, but please reopen the bug if you can still reproduce the issue.
