Moving to Firefox Support.

To what format are you trying to save the page?
What is the specific site, in case the issue has something to do with page coding/formatting?

It works for me.

File > Save Page As > mozillaZine.htm as web page complete
File > Open File > mozillaZine.htm in Downloads folder

Test page
http://www.mozillazine.org/

Firefox 58.0.1
Windows 7 SP1 32-bit

Still not working. I tried disabling firewall too. OK. I started FF in safe mode and it works. So, I like my add ons but need to see which one is causing this? Ghostery?

.
FWIW I can store one of the thread pages form http://www.survivalistboards.com/ using the "Save Page" icon.

Remember it stores two things.

1 - Page Name - Survivalist Forum.html

2 - Page Name - Survivalist Forum_files

You double click on the html file to open the stored page which will then load the information in the files directory. NOTE, both of these must be in the same location.

Thanks everyone. I restarted in safe mode and it worked. After restarting again it still worked with addons enabled. I don't know what happened but all is well for the moment

FWIW, it seems to be reproducible when cache limited to 0 (options->Privacy&Security->Cached Web Content).
(without add-ons, for http://www.survivalistboards.com/ only, not always, retry will succeed, unreproducible in safe mode)

(only "Failed" label, no any other explanation, no clue such as error messages in browser console... user cannot recognize what's happened :-( )
