Thread: Firefox "save page as" not working

  1. #1

    Question Firefox "save page as" not working

    It's not working no matter what webpage I view. Windows works just fine. Try "save page as" on this typical page.

    Nothing happens?? No save prompt.

    It does not help very much when you do not tell which openSUSE level and which FF level.
    Do you realy expect al readers to try this whichever combination of software they might have?
    This looks like the virus posted elsewhere except that it does no harm to the system.

    Actually, kidding aside, I was going to do a similar post, but never got round to it: I think this is a Firefox KDE integration issue. I have not been able to reproduce this at will, but it definitely happens after FF has been running for a while: none of the "File" (Open, Save As) dialogs pop up anymore. Stopping and restarting Firefox fixes the issue.

    By the way, this also happened on 11.2 and KDE 4.3.x, but my system is now 11.3 / KDE 4.4.4 and this happens still regularly.

    Does anyone have a clue on where to start looking? Is there a way to temporarily disable the FF KDE Integration to see if that's the problem?

    I can verify it is a problem here....vanilla 11.2, noscript the only add on.

    Can not even save from the view source window. But you can copy and paste to a text editor then save as a work around.

    I had this problem in 11.2 KDE 4.3.

    So far in 11.3 KDE 4.4.4 it has not occurred.

    Start Firefox in safemode and see if problem persists.

    It wasn't working for a while on the last version of suse. This version has the same problem. If you need specifics ask, I add info as is needed. I'm not always sure what is needed.

    The lastest suse software updates fixed the problem. It's working. Now, I need to find out how to change the screen saver timer. I still can't find the location in admin or the desktop since the last version of suse.
