Description Mike Kupfer 2001-06-11 00:25:08 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)

Description of problem:
When I try to save Red Hat Errata descriptions as text files,
I either get a zero-length file, or Netscape dies with a bus

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHSA-2001-073.html
2. try to save as text (File->Save As...)

Actual Results:  If I'm lucky, I get a zero-length file where I told
to put the results.  If I'm unlucky, I get a core file.

Expected Results:  Netscape should save the text from the web page, plus
text is appropriate for the graphics in the page.

Additional info:

This is not fixed in 4.77.

You need to report this to netscape at:


Unfortunately, we can't fix this, as we don't have the netscape source code.
