Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

When you save a web page with "File/Save As" and chose to save it as "web page, complete", an html file is saved and the image files, javascript files and css files are saved in a folder. However, background image files referenced in css style sheets are not retrieved and saved. There's no reason why they shouldn't.

Is dino99 a bot or a retarded person?

I have just checked, and the issue described in this "outdated report" is still present in the latest version of Firefox on the current version of Ubuntu.

Before closing issues just because they are old, please check if they still exist!

P.S. I have seen a few other issues that I reported or starred closed by the same user in the last few days. I am not going to waste my time checking how many of them were wrongly closed like this one.

Someone should mass-undo all the issue closing changes made by dino99 lately and probably revoke him permissions to manage bugs.

- if you still get these issues with a fresh install not disturted by old borked config/settings, then open a new report about bug or missing feature(s)/wrong design.
- dont forget to report upstream if necessary.

Not sure what you mean

> note that no one have wasted time to fix or commented on that bug

So what?? If nobody has fixed it yet, it means it shouldn't be fixed??

> if you still get these issues with a fresh install not disturted by old borked config/settings,

I f***ing told you I DO observe these issues with a current version. It does not need to be a fresh install. It's upgraded through the official channels. If there were any difference between that and a fresh install, that would be a bug in itself. But I'm pretty sure it's not the case.

> then open a new report

Why should I reopen a new report every time a new version is released if the bug is not fixed?? The original reports contains all the relevant information. You shouldn't have closed it without verifying that the issue was fixed (which it is not), and I have even verified again that it is not. So why waste time closing reports and opening new ones?

I don't get what the link has to do with the issue.

Did you even read the report?? The issue is not the inability to download some "protected" content, it's just that when saving a complete webpage, urls used in CSS such as background images are not retrieved.

BTW, Last comment before doing what?

Oh, I now notice you just changed the status to "incomplete".
What is missing?

Can you compare with the httrack way on a page having issue ?

What's httrack?

Note that the issue is extremely easy to test, you should be able to compare whatever you want to compare by yourself (I don't mean to be rude, I'm just saying)

If you are still experiencing this bug in any currently Ubuntu release (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases) then:

1. Enter that release first name into the tag list.
2. Set this bug status back to "confirmed".

It's already there since comment #5

Let's hope this time dino99 won't change it back without providing a reason.
