Thread: Uncurrect namig (src) when saving pages

  1. Uncurrect namig (src) when saving pages

    When a web page is saved (file -> "save page as"), a copy of its HTML file
    is saved with a coupled folder (...._files) containing all the auxilliary
    files of the page; files, like images, that are addressed by elements with
    SRC attribute.

    If one of these files has an original name that contains dots like
    'earth.image1.png', the name of the saved file is truncated to the part that
    precedes the leftmost dot: 'earth.png'.

    Is it a Firefox's bug?

    (My OS is Windows XP sp2)

    Internet Explorer always saves files with their original name.

    (yeah that sounds a bit strange.)

    i wish i could find an example of that.

    since ff file loads local (the saved html) with all of its 'child' files, i guess ff's save-
    as simultaneously rewrites the html's links as truncated to the "one-dot filename".

    that would be a rather diligently produced bug.
