On Firefox 5.0.1 running on Mac OS X 10.6.8, I found that the Mozilla Archive Format 1.0.0 add-on caused Firefox to regularly consume 100% CPU for several minutes, during which time it would be unresponsive. UPDATE: I was mistaken. Although the problem initially disappeared after I disabled the Mozilla Archive Format 1.0.0 add-on, the problem has now returned, and the Mozilla Archive Format 1.0.0 add-on is still disabled. I've increased the rating I'm giving to the add-on accordingly.



The add-on doesn't provide an option to save web pages in a format that allows them to be previewed using "Quick Look" in the Finder.



Other than that, it seems to be OK.

This looks like a platform limitation, feedback is welcome on the mailing list

While I don't have access to the Mac platform, the issue with Quick Look seems a limitation of the operating system. Maybe there is a way to make Quick Look compatible with MAFF or at least MHTML. You may try and write to a Mac-specific support forum, or to the Mozilla Archive Format mailing list or newsgroup (http://maf.mozdev.org/feedback.html) to see if other users have resolved the problem.

You can with XML make Maff be recognized in Linux like maff and not like ordinary zip file Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Hi Paolo.I was reading a post over (http://www.mozdev.org/pipermail/maf/2010-March/000431.html) and I had the same problem.

So to solve this I created a XML MIME file to register Maff MIME type and make Linux recognize maff files like maff files in fact, differentiating them from zip files, because actually Linux systems recognizes maff files as ordinary zip files, and handle as so, if anyone associates maff files with firefox, zip files will be associated too, what is very annoying.

With registration of MIME type we can associate maff files with Firefox without disturbing zip files association, which is a blessing help.The required steps are:First create a empty plain text, now paste the following content on it:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<mime-info xmlns="http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/shared-mime-info">
<mime-type type="application/x-maff">
<comment>Maff File</comment>
<comment xml:lang="pt">Ficheiro Maff</comment>
<comment xml:lang="pt_BR">Arquivo Maff</comment>
<glob pattern="*.maff"/>
</mime-type>
</mime-info>

This content describes maff files and maff extention to MIME engine used by Gnome, KDE, Rox etc.

That done, save this file with name and extention maff.xml , now with root privileges paste maff.xml file you just created under bellow folder:

/usr/share/mime/packages

That folder is apropriate in Linux to locate xml MIME type files we created.

That done, run the following command to update MIME type database:

update-mime-database /usr/share/mime

That done, restart X, you can restart system or if you prefer to kill X use the command: killall Xorg

After restart X maff files will be recognized as maff files dissassociated from zip files, now you can associate maff itself with firefox and zip files will not be associated togother anymore.

Lines like <comment xml:lang="pt_BR">Arquivo Maff</comment> are basically translation of line <comment>Maff File</comment> who serves like a description label of MIME for human reading, then anyone can add specific translation to respective native languages in native language characters, if know what are doing, as I'm brazilian I added european portuguese and brazilian portuguese translation, so don't be afraid, if I knew more languages​​, I would include, but I do not know, So will be better to leave that to those who knows it with property.

For further info about MIME association in Linux you can read the official shared MIME spec page over (http://standards.freedesktop.org/shared-mime-info-spec/shared-mime-info-spec-latest.html)

Now Paolo, two things lasts like problems, first we Linux users need official png artwork icons to emblem (personificate) maff files in Linux systems, I looked over project's page but don't find any artwork, so any direction about this would be cool.

And the second issue is even when maff are set as default saving format we Linux users still get ".html" extention piece name saved before maff extention, so we get things like:

mypage.html.maff

That is very boring, to make me well understandable have any solution to make it save files like:

mypage.maff without ".html" piece.

PS: I'm not an english speaker as you can see, so write here was a great sacrifice. So if killed the english give a break, was necessary.

Very useful contribution

This is very useful, thanks for your contribution and sorry for the late response! I already did some research, and the greatest difficulty is automating all these tasks at installation time, especially running "update-mime-database" and making sure the associations are refreshed without restarting, which would be optimal. I recommend you write to the mailing list (http://maf.mozdev.org/feedback.html) if you want to follow up on this, you'll surely receive a more timely response!

The MHT files could be smaller Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

I'm preparing to upgrade to Firefox 4 and since Save Complete supposedly isn't compatible, I need a new "page saving" Add-on.

I tested both Mozilla Archive Format (MAF) and UnMHT against Save Complete and Firefox's default saving method by saving the exact same webpage with each of the various methods. Here are the size results.

Default = 234 KB
Save Complete = 207 KB
UnMHT = 295 KB
MAF-MHT = 315 KB
MAF-MAFF = 195 KB
MAF-SaveComplete = 235 KB

Obviously the MAFF format was the smallest, but Save Complete was the only method that was 100% true to the original page. The 20 KB difference between the MHT files isn't much but it would still be nice to see MAF produce the smallest files possible.

~~~
I was just about to post this when I decided to do a bit more testing, and I made a couple of interesting discoveries.
~~~

I have determined that Save Complete is in fact compatible with Firefox 4 after modifying the install.rdf to change the maxVersion.

Also, the page that Save Complete perfected actually renders differently in Firefox 4 for some unknown reason. Taking this into consideration, all of the methods I tested will produce the exact same page in Firefox 4 regardless of size differences.

~~~
Conclusion
~~~
With the superior compression of the MAFF format, the built-in "Save Complete" functionality, and MHT support, I think that the Mozilla Archive Format extension is easily the best of the three Add-Ons. The MHT files could be smaller and the Save Complete functionality could be better, but this is definitely the Add-On I will be using from now on.

Very accurate review, more details are welcome on the mailing list!

Thank you very much for your post, I think it represents what a true add-on review should look like, with comparisons and results. To make it really super, I would add the details of the testing process (version numbers, source files, and so on), so that anyone could reproduce and verify the results. Also, the details would be useful to improve the add-on itself. You're welcome on the mailing list (http://maf.mozdev.org/feedback.html) if you want to provide more details!

pretty good Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

This is pretty nice for one page, but is there a way to archive a page structure (like this whole tutorial http://www.acm.uiuc.edu/sigops/roll_your_own/intro.html) and replace the online links with relative to the saved pages?

The feature you requested is outside the scope of the MAF extension, but would be an interesting separate project. I don't know of an extension that is designed for that purpose.

Line in the middle of the page Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

This add-on is great but it doesn't work properly.
I and my colleague have it on our computers but when we open some mhtml file, it's not shown properly. There is some line in the middle and it cuts some part of the mhtml page. I could provide you with the screenshot if you are interested.

Thanks for the report, please follow up in the support mailing list

The problem you experienced may be related to the fact that the file you are opening was created with a different browser, and Firefox cannot display it exactly, or the cause may be a bug in MAF. Please write to the support mailing list (http://maf.mozdev.org/feedback.html) if you want to provide additional details that may help us in identifying and solving the problem.

It will be a good idea if the saved page URL be saved with the page too.

The original location is available in web archives

Usually, the original location a page was saved from is available in web archives, and by default it can be viewed using the icon in the address bar. If this is not what you're asking for, please let us know in the support mailing list!
