Description

Developer and Mozilla community member Paolo Amadini reported that when saving the inner frame of a web page as a file when the outer page has POST data associated with it, the POST data will be incorrectly sent to the URL of the inner frame. This could potentially result in a user's sensitive data being sent to a site for which it was not intended.
