how to change saving webpage using title of the page as name

After the recent update, whenever I save a webpage it uses the title of the page as the default name to save the page as. I want to change that to using the filename as the default save name. Can anyone tell me the process to do that if available? Thanks.

I know that the PrefBar extension comes with a button to save the page with the name of the file. I don't know if there are others, but you can try a search on the Add-ons page.

Still the same issue when I use the addon that you suggested. When I click on the Save Page button, it uses the title of the page as save name whereas I want to use the name of the html file as the save name. When I went into the edit option for "Save Page", it states saveDocument(window.content.document);

Do you know the code to change this to using html filename as the save name instead of the title of the page?

You can try to set the page title to an empty string via a bookmarklet or via the Web Console (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer) to force using the file name.

Thanks Edward27821 for replying. I did know about this method. Just time consuming to keep changing the filename. Wanted to know whether there is a way to set as default whenever you save a webpage to use the name of the hmtl file as the save name.

Hi Cor-el. I got to the Web Console. Where do I need to put the line of code? Sorry for all the questions and thanks for taking the time to help.

The Web Console has a command line at the bottom where you can enter commands after the prompt (>>).
