How are you going about saving pages in Firefox? Are you just doing File
> Save Page As...? Or are you using some kind of add-on? I just tried
the Save Page As method and didn't notice this issue. I have the same
version of Firefox. If you're not sure if there's an add-on interfering,
start Firefox in safe mode and save the page again to see if you still
have the same problem.
