PresGas and wit_273 Thanks for your replies.
PresGas I do not have "Show Hidden Files" selected in Nautilus.
wit_273 In Fedora 9 right clicking anywhere in the save as screen has no effect.
However I have solved the issue by executing < ctrl+h > (control h) this key combination toggles the hidden files view in the selection window.
Anyway thank you both for you help.
