Not sure why you want users to explicitly 'save' if it's that critical. As dan1111 mentioned in previous answer, you may want to consider autosaving/revisit information flow for this task. That said, if you need explicit saving, option B is better than option A. Popping up two dialog boxes is confusing in most warning dialogue cases. It's advisable to ...

Correct your design rather than trying to solve this with an error message. Imported data most likely should be saved automatically, without requiring an additional user action. Even if you do need an explicit save action for some reason, you should save the program state so the data is not lost when they close the program--if they close without saving, ...

In the case where the page reloads, I think placing the spinner in the center of the screen or the web form container would do a better job. It will ensure that more users will notice it and be aware of the ...

If there is a Done button on the right top corner and the header is sticky (always visible) then that is enough to tell/indicate the user that changes will be saved only on clicking the Done button. Also, if the user uses back button of the phone then you can show a modal-box to check if user wants to save their changes or not (just to be on safe side). If ...
