What happened to the Save Frame As... on the File menu? It was there in FF 3.6; it's absent now.

Posted

My data source is a daily table on a Web page. In FF 3.16 I click in the table and select File>Save Frame As.... In the Save As dialog box, I key a file name ending in ".txt". The data is saved in a tab-separated text file that I open in Excel.

In FF 5.0.1 File>Save Page As… results in Excel opening a blank sheet.
