Sometimes, you can't save the page you want (actually I don't know why this happens). How can I force the Safari to Save As?

    do you have an example of a URL where you have the problem? – Laurent Bristiel Apr 17 '14 at 7:06

  • hmm, interesting...do you have a JS setting that would prevent that ? (javaScript) – Ruskes Apr 17 '14 at 9:10

Don't know the reason and don't reproduce the problem. But according to this question you should be able to override this by clicking on option at the same time.

  • that worked for me. Save As... was greyed out unless I held option. – dwightk Apr 17 '14 at 13:32

    Actually you don’t have to hold Option in order to use Save As. It’s greyed out because you haven’t focused the cursor to the page. Command+S should probably work without using Option too. – sayzlim Apr 17 '14 at 13:47

If others are trying to save an audio or video file that is opened directly in a tab, try to focus the location bar and press option-return.

If you open an audio or video file in Safari, select Save As, and set the format to Page Source, Safari just saves an empty file.

This can happen when the page hasn't actually finished loading. Try pressing command-[period] to stop it loading, then try saving the page.
