Just tried Safari (got advised to save battery power over Chrome) and the "Save As" button is disabled! Can't save a single page!

Any idea why this happens and what I can do against it? Thanks!

EDIT. Safari version 6.1, MacOS 10.8.5

  • Can you please add your Safari version, such that future users know that that certain future have this problem? Dec 18, 2013 at 13:34

Ok, I found it - it does not let me save page until it is fully loaded! Which is painfully slow sometimes, comparing to Chrome. As far as I can see, Chrome still lets me save page even if it is not complete and even when I just started loading it still works with previous page! So I can still save the previous page after mistakenly clicking on a link.


I'm not sure on the why but if you use Cmd+S, the Export dialog pops up as expected (After that, Save As... is once again available. Until you reload the page).

I think it's a bug in Safari (I base this on the fact that it's also possible to reactivate Save As... by mousing over it in the menu, closing the menu and then reopening it again...)

  • @DmitriZaitsev True, I didn't think to include that in my reply.
