Am using Firefox 18 (also tried 19b2 from launchpad repository). When trying to save a file or website to a specific directory, I get error message
... could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents of that folder. Change the folder properties and try again, or try saving in a different location.
In firefox error console I can see
Error: NS_ERROR_FAILURE: Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIWebBrowserPersist.saveDocument]
The directory that am trying to save to is a NFS volume. It is in my own username and it has 750 permission. Files inside have permission 660.
These below can save, edit and delete files from the directory:
- Chrome 25.0.1364.36 beta
- KDE Dolphin 2.1
- Firefox 17, 18, 18.1, 19b1, 19b2 (downloaded from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/)
So the problem is only in the release from ubuntu/debian/repository, not from mozillas own release of firefox. I have a clean firefox profile (deleted ~/.mozilla directory).
