Firefox deletes saved website if all browsing data is cleared.

Posted

If I save a webpage (CTRL+S) to an HTML-file (+folder) and then clear all browsing data, the HTML-file (not the folder) gets deleted. I suppose this is not intended?

Clearing browsing history in Firefox shouldn't affect files that you saved to the hard drive.

How are you clearing this data ? You aren't using external software to do cleanup ?

Just in case this is a problem with creating the file in the first place, please double-check that the HTML file was saved when using Save Page As before you clear data. You can use the downloads arrow on the toolbar and the folder icon to "Open Containing Folder" and the file should be selected.
