in reply to Save File As --filenames

I see it too.

It looks like it depends on the URL used to access the page. Visit each of these links and then try saving them, see if you get the same results that I do (if these URLs use a different domain than you usually do, you won't stay logged in):
This one works!

The only difference is the "" in the URL.

Update: I'd suspect that if you took out of whatever bookmark you use as your entry point to perlmonks, the issue would disappear.

BTW, I got these results on Firefox 1.0.7, Mozilla 1.7.11 on Debian unstable.

Update 2: edited first update

    Thanks, your example clarifies the problem. I see the same results as you, it's the ''. However, it's not a question of getting it from my bookmarks, because I save to files.

    So I guess the question is whether the perlmonk's cgi script can be changed to remove the '' from the url it sends, without breaking something else. I can access the same node without the '' in the url, so maybe it's not even needed?

      Perlmonks doesn't (hasn't for a while) put "" into URLs. It uses URLs like "?node_id=495872". Your browser is adding the So stop using whatever link or bookmark that has "" in it and won't show up.

      You could also add a "" to your Free Nodelet via [href:///?node_id=`id`|outdex] (outdex), for example.
