    The short answer is that you can't stop a determined person from saving your page.

    Firefox's Cache is located in the Privacy section of the Preferences.

    1.0.6 is the latest version of Firefox at the time that I'm posting this.

    Man who try squeeze water out of stone too hard end up getting water out of hand.

    I have no idea how this relates to anything, but if anyone asks this question again I'm going to go supernova in a giant ball of pure nova-hot rage and obliterate the universe. Some people would call that harsh, but I don't honestly think it deserves to exist if humanity is all it can come up with.

    sgrkadam the simple reason why you can not find an answer to your question is because there isn't one. Disabling funamental functions of browsers is a security concern above all else, and a bloody nuisance for any user who wants to use those functions for legitimate purposes.

    Any casual save is hardly going to do you any harm, and anyone determined to save your content will do so no matter what you try. You might as well try and protect the air you're breathing by frantically waving your hands in circles and gathering up the air molecules.

    If you're that determined, you could also have your site spawn a new window for your content with all the menus removed. Then you can laugh maniacally as the determined save-as monster tries to find the menu!

    that would take me all of about a second to break, if not less.

    The way web browsers work:

    1. They download a copy of all of the required files to the local computer.
    2. They display the page using those locally saved files.

    If you want to block step one then you will also block step two. The simplest way to do this is to not upload the web page to anywhere on the web in the first place.

    To disable save as you copy the web page to a CD. You then break the CD into two pieces and take them out into your garden and bury them in separate locations. You then delete all of the copies of the page from your computer and from the web. Failure to perform thes precise actions will mean that your web page can be copied - web browsers are designed to copy web pages - thats what web browsers do.

    Your web page will still exist. Copies of your page will remain cached around the web. You have to replace your files with something else with the same URL. That way the cached version will be overwritten - but only when the cache is updated.

    Would blowing up the planet suffice?

    Look, the whole point of the web is to spred information and, by its nature, it resists any attempt to hide or restrict information. And to that I say "Huzzah!"

    The wayback machine of course has copies of old versions of web pages available so I guess it is safe to say that if you have published something on the web then the only way to stop it from being copyable is to blow up the planet. My earlier suggestion would work only if the info hasn't already been uploaded.
