When do you get the error? If it is when you click download it might be trying to save to a location it doesn't have permissions for.


It's when I try to take the screenshot, so it doesn't even get to the post-screenshot action selector.
And it seems the problem happens on a fresh profile as well. If it indeed doesn't happen for anyone else, I should probably file a bug (was kind of hoping that I was not the only one and it is reported somewhere already).

Interesting, I just tried taking screenshot in one of my clean 'testing' profile and got the 'Whoa... something failed', got the notification that 'connection was not secure'...

EDIT: just tested with today's Nightly with a new 'test' profile and got the same - insecure connection.

Not to beat a dead horse but WTF is the MegaBar supposed to accomplish? Al it does is make the URL bar bigger and hide some of the icons next to it. I see no reason for it to exist. Am I missing some positive aspect of it?

I do see one positive aspect: Sometimes when I switch workspaces and windows I'm not sure whether the focus is in the URL bar or not. This makes the focus clear more often.

(I'm not saying my focus question is anything but a minor occasional issue.)

Among the many bugs on Megabar there are bugs on the icon hiding. It seems to be it was only tested on a narrow set of configurations before it was made the default on Nightly. A comment was added to the tracking bug praising the submitted bugs and said they were working on solutions.
