    "Save As" is not working - I am unable to save a page in any of these apps :

    Chrome regular or portable 8.0.552.224

    Iron 8.0.55.0 regular or portable

    I can't save in either format - web page complete, or html

    When I click on either option, there is no evidence of any activity - no throbber, no nothing.

    Even if I wait up to 1-2 minutes, nothing happens.
    then if I Left click on the page, the hourglass shows & the page hangs, & have to close the browser.

    However, I can print the page - I use PDFFactory Pro.

    But, often times I need to save the webpage, preferably as .mht,
    so that I can copy & embed hidden urls in a pdf of the page.

    Yes, I've tried "Single File" by gildas - still doesn't work.

    I reset Security to give Full Permissions in the download folder to Everyone - - admins, Users -----> I literally mean eVERY****ing ONE !!!

    turned off Avast 5.

    XPsp3 pro

    Due to the advanced skills of the forum members here,
    I'm hoping for a solution - Thanks very much for any help.

    is that on any site or just some? If some can you give a sample link? Did you try if another browser works?

    Hello, you can try this extension: SingleFile. It will prefetch page and then press Ctrl+S to save complete webpage as single file.

    also ... example;
    http://www.autohotkey.com/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page

    it saves fine in IE8, k-meleon, Opera .... o_O

    edit : another "interesting" observation :

    Iron installed or portable both work with hotmail.com & ebay.com,
    whereas Chrome/Chromium ... installed/portable ... regular/dev/beta/Chromium ---- none of these do without the IE plugin ??

    .... so, when I'm doing business and need to respond in a timely manner whilst using especially these 2 sites, then I can't just live in the fast-browser-fantasy land of the Chromium related browsers,
    or even Opera for that matter.

    even Kmeleon doesn't fit my specific workflow without a hitch -
    may-be i'm just "ruint" by IE :lol:
    or, probably just need to invest the more precious time
    to further figure out these other options

    ... isn't the digital life wonderful ? :doubt:
