Description

A user reported on our blog (https://blog.torproject.org/comment/276819#comment-276819) that downloading a website leads to lost pictures and layout. Not sure about the latter but I tried to download the current blog page I was on and at least the Tor Browser image at the top was not displayed anymore loading the site via file:///.

Not sure if that's a regression.

I wonder whether #22343 plays a role here.

Does it work in FF? I recently learned our Save As component is very old and crufty, and has decade old functional bugs like: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115107

I see the same behavior in Firefox 62. For downloading https://torproject.org, it fails to download typography.min.css.

So I think this may be a Firefox bug, but I'm not sure it's an old bug because I think it used to work in previous versions of Firefox and Tor Browser.

No, I tested with the latest patch for #22343 and despite everything going over the same (not-catch-all) circuit the problem persists.
