I have saved a web page as index.html. Its dependent files also has been saved automatically.

When I try to open my saved web page in any browser, the browser automatically redirects the html file path into and does not open my file.

My file address is /home/bignet/Documents/index.html

Thank you.

Could you possibly post the contents of the index.html file on pastebin and share the link here? – saji89 Jun 1 '12 at 18:06

I would say that the browser thinks that you are inputting a search term. The correct address is file:///home/bignet/Documents/index.html.
