Description j.e.drews 2000-02-23 13:43:40 UTC
I am using Netscape 4.7 on a Dell Dimension computer; Red Hat 6.0 factory
installed. I have obtained all the *.rpm updates, that have no conflicts,
from the errata and security web site and installed them.
Nature of problem: When saving a web page, with the name index.html, the
saved page overwrites the directory. If the file extension is changed from
html to, say, *.ps, the problem will not occur. If the prefix "index", in
index.html is changed, to cat for instance, the problem will not occur.
To fix: go to xterm and cd into the overwritten folder. Then do rm
index.html. To reproduce: go to www.sluug.org then do file -> Save as in
Netscape. This appears to happen with any web page named index.html; I have
given the one above as an example.

I can't reproduce this here; saving index.html simply
creates an index.html file in the current directory.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-23 19:02:59 UTC
Assigned to kdebase, as the user is most likely using kfm...

Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-02-23 19:10:59 UTC
It's not a bug, it's a feature. kfm displays the index.html file instead of the
directory content to make it possible to create a customized interface, and so
you can just check your own web pages by going to file:/home/httpd/html.

If you don't like this feature, turn it of by unchecking "HTML View" in the
"View" menu in kfm, then click "Save settings" in the "Options" menu.
