 Replying to [comment:11 gk]:
 > For me any page is sufficient. Take for example `about:tor`. Here is
 what I did (with an en-US bundle):
 > 1) I opened the hamburger menu in the upper right corner and selected
 the Print icon.
 > 2) I clicked on the Print... button, selected Print to File, chose a
 name and clicked on Print.
 > 3) I repeated 2) but no warning dialog appeared (notifying you that you
 are about to overwrite a file).
 > 4) Upon looking in the directory where the file was supposed to be saved
 it turns out it was not.
 > 5) Repeating 1) and 2) with multiprocess mode disabled solves it for me.

 I've tested again with AppArmor fully disabled (removed `security=apparmor
 apparmor=1` from the kernel command line) to make sure it's not involved.
 I see the same in Tails 3.2 started in French, but if started with the
 default locale (en_US) 1) and 2) work fine even without disabling
