My first guess would be that firefox wants "unix extensions = yes" on 
the Samba server.  Another possibility is that Firefox doesn't 
understand automounting, try making sure that the directory is mounted 
(do "cd" to it) and then attempting to save.

Apart from that it's difficult to answer without actual error messages, 
ideally also from the Sambaserver log, and a bit more details about your 
Samba configuration.

When in fear and when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.
