I was trying to auto save a Google result page but when I opened the designated folder and clicked on the autosave file, it won't open the Google result page. There was a message that said Some pictures have been blocked to help prevent the sender from identifying your computer.

Why can't I open the file? What should I do?

  • did you save this to your computer? And what do you mean by auto save? – Rebecca Dessonville May 9 '12 at 13:09

If you view source and save you will not necessarily be able to reproduce the page via the saved HTML source; if you save as anything else you may encounter formatting difficulties (such as you described).

My advice is to save as a PDF, either by print - print preview - save as pdf, or by an online service that converts an URL to a PDF (pdfcrowd.com also has a Firefox extension). Alternately, you could take a snapshot of the page, or even possibly explore sites such as view web page as googlebot or lmgtfy.com (let me google that for you).
