AssertionError while adding Web Archive to library

When trying to add http://management.monster.com/featuredreports/new-managers/time-management/?WT.mc_n=MNL000283 to the library I receive the following dialog box (and the add fails). This is using the demo version of EagleFiler 1.0.2.

“Internal Error while Adding Web Archive to library”

AssertionError:

( OK )

Is this reproducible for others using the same URL? Is there more information I can provide about this error?

Yes, I can reproduce that problem on my Mac. The assertion error is a bug in EagleFiler, which I will fix in the next release–it’s running into an internal error while trying to display a proper error message. The underlying problem is that something about that Web page’s JavaScript is making WebKit crash. I will try to find a workaround.

In the meantime, the easiest way to get that page into EagleFiler would probably be to print it and choose “Save PDF to EagleFiler” from the PDF button.

Apple seems to have fixed this crashing bug in the latest version of Web Kit.
