This is for sure Mstone-1.0. I've begun to take a look along with  issue 3315 

Comment 5 by, Oct 17 2008

I just want to mention that: 

When open js or css file, the "Encoding" menu is always disabled, so if "Auto detect"
is off or "Default encoding" is not the right one, there is no way to get non-ASCII
characters show correctly in js or css file.

1. Launch English Chrome
2. Go to
3. View source of this page
4. Open the corresponding css or js link in a new tab
5. Observe the non-ASCII characters

fixed in r3844 on trunk (also merged to 1.0 branch by Mark).

Xiaolu, can you verify the fix? 

Glen said he still saw the encoding menu disabled occasionally? 
To Glen, can you reproduce failure reliably? Specific web pages, file types, a
sequence of pages?  Or is it just sporadic?  

Status: Assigned
Hmm, three cases:

1. Fixed for part of web pages, like:

2. Still reproduce on some web pages, what those pages have in common:

When "Save page as", "Save As" dialog shows:
File name: download
Save as type: Chrome HTML

Instead of:
File name: The title of the page
Save as type: Web Page, Complete


3. This web page is more weird, when open it at the first time, the "Encoding" menu
is enabled, then switch to a new tab, then switch back, the "Encoding" menu becomes

The condition for enabling the encoding menu is |IsSavableType && IsSavableURL|.  So, 
the 2nd case makes sense. Now, I wonder why those web pages are regarded as 'not 
savable'.  I'll debug it. 

Hmm, the 3rd case is indeed strange. I'll also look into it. 

Comment 15 by, Oct 27 2008

This time, it should be really fixed (r4001 , )

Fixed on trunk build (Developer Build 4200).

I will close this bug when the fix landed to the branch.
Status: Fixed
Xiaolu, please mark this as verified when you verify this on the release branch.

RE: comment 18 does not have the patch, yet. It'll be in next dev release. However, even 
in trunk build, the pop-up menu has the encoding menu disabled. Thanks for spotting 
it. Let's deal with it in  issue 3769 .

you mean  issue 3765  (i think)

i just love beta testing... thanks for giving me the platform to do it :) and for 
making a great piece of software of course
