— Open web pages saved with Internet Explorer or other browsers (MHT)
— Save many tabs, video and audio reliably, in a single ZIP file (MAFF)
— Return to the original site you saved a page from, and more!
This add-on is not compatible with your version of Firefox for Android because of the following:
This add-on does a good job when you have a small number of tabs and you want to save them to multiple files. Moreover, it can be easily combined with the File Tile add-on (https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/file-title/) to save web pages using their title.
A possible improvement would be to save all tabs automatically to the Downloads folder, without asking for each file name individually, when the corresponding browser preference is set.
I am the current maintainer of the Mozilla Archive Format extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/mozilla-archive-format/).
Some time ago, the author of Save Complete developed a new version integrated with Mozilla Archive Format. It can save complete web pages accurately, even if you don't want to create a MAFF or MHTML web archive. There are also various enhancements made to the integrated version over the years, including the ability to save pages with frames.
To use it, you only have to install Mozilla Archive Format and configure it to use the integrated version of Save Complete. You can then use the standard save dialog of Firefox or SeaMonkey to save your pages accurately.
I hope this information is useful to Save Complete users until the stand-alone version is updated.
Version 1.0.3 has definitely improved, resolving the two critical problems that were present in the previous version. As stated in the documentation (which, by the way, is clear and explicative) this add-on still does not create fully compliant MAFF files, and opening the generated files might fail in some cases, but overall it does the job it was designed for.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3).
I found this new experimental extension a few days after it was published, and I find that the ability to create MAFF files from sites saved by ScrapBook is a really interesting idea. I tried to contact the author directly on the support forum a few weeks ago, but registration there didn't work, thus I'll write a detailed review here instead.
I tried out version 1.0.2, on Windows. Under many aspects, I think there is still room for improvement. The most severe problem was that the browser stopped responding when I tried to save a page, because the archive was created in the same folder of its source files, and the extension tried to recursively compress the archive into itself, in an endless loop. I solved this by configuring the output path.
Another problem is that no overwrite warning is issued if I try to save two pages with the same name, causing the loss of the previously saved page. Actually, I think this action would be better implemented using a save dialog, but of course I say this without knowing what is the author's overall idea for this extension's user interface design.
Except for these two problems, the Creator works smoothly almost all the time.
There are only some minor compatibility issues with the MAFF format: the ZIP is
missing the "directory entries", and saving some pages (for example, pages that
have double quotes in their title) results in an invalid archive being created.
Regarding this aspect, I have a message for the author: maybe you don't know that, while the Mozilla Archive Format extension is available under the GPL only, most of its sources are licensed under the same MPL/GPL/LGPL tri-license you chose for your code. It's probably more convenient to reuse the MAF code for creating the archives, rather than rewriting it and coping with the potential differences in the resulting files. I'm available if you need any help with this: you can either copy the original files to your package or use them through an API. You may also consider contributing the feature to the MAF extension itself, but this would require much more work as the MAF code base has high quality standards, and maybe it's not your intention to be bounded by another extension's release schedule.
A last note: MAF is the name of the extension, while MAFF (Mozilla Archive Format File) is the name of the file format (see also http://maf.mozdev.org/maff-file-format.html). Thus the proper name for your extension should be "ScrapBook MAFF Creator" ;-)
I'm looking forward to seeing the new versions of this interesting extension :-) I'll update the rating periodically if new versions are published!
I'm the current developer and maintainer of the Mozilla Archive Format extension, and tried out Multiple Tab Handler while working on the tab selection window embedded in MAF.
As soon as I installed this extension, I found that it was very handy and really easy to use.
Using Ctrl+Click and Shift+Click on tabs did what I expected these key combinations to do. The extension also had some interesting features like selection-by-drag and close-by-drag.
Since I don't routinely use all the available functions, I was able to hide them from the context menu of the selected tabs, using the preferences window.
For developers, MTH provides a programming interface that makes it really easy to add new functions that work on multiple tabs; I used this interface in MAF, to provide an easy way to save multiple pages in a single file.
In reply to Mitch and Victonio: what you probably need is Save Complete integrated with Mozilla Archive Format (http://maf.mozdev.org/)!
* Integration with Ctrl+S
* Option to save in a single file (MAFF archive)
Starting from development version 5.1.1, UnMHT is compatible with Mozilla Archive Format development version 0.9.0!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1.0).
I am the current developer and maintainer of the Mozilla Archive Format extension ().
I'm glad to announce that MAF development version 0.9.0 integrates the functionality of Save Complete!
The integrated version also includes further improvements to the file save process, that will be integrated in the next version of Save Complete by the extension's author.
I'm the current developer and maintainer of the Mozilla Archive Format extension.
I found UnMHT mentioned sometimes as an alternative to MAF, and gave it a try. I found that UnMHT is really superior to MAF 0.6.3 with regard to MHT handling.
In particular, UnMHT over MAF has:
* Higher level of MHT compatibility.
* The ability to save the current state of a page.
* Memory caching of MHT contents.
However, at present, MAF remains the only solution for viewing and saving the MAFF ZIP-based, cross-browser file format. MAF is only compatible with Firefox 3, while UnMHT supports a wider range of applications.
UnMHT source code is well written, understandable and maintainable; comments are written in Japanese.
From version 5.1.1, UnMHT is fully compatible with MAF development version 0.9.0.
MAF 0.8.0 for Firefox 3 is now available at the official site:
It has a lot of improvements over the previous version 0.6.3.
It is also heading towards greater compatibility with UnMHT, so that you'll be able to use both extensions at the same time.
