I wonder why mozilla don't reacts. This is one of the best addon.
Save Page WE is not the same - the HTML file ist to great.
MAFF is fantastic. It WORKS. In this time when we have fast and easy gather knowledge from the Internet it is a PEARL. With no doubts - breaking compatibility in new version of FF will bring the browser to the END. For years I use FF I have tons of MAFFs I will not convert them into crappy HTML + FileFolder format. This is my knowledge base. Available whereever I need it no matter if a given material is still available and in place. No paid solution like Evernote, Pocket and so on will be enough for me and I know that for many others too.
I prey Mozilla will see the whole mistake in abandoning compatibility with it. Why FF cannot be a browser for advanced Internet users for which functionality means far more than "fast-clicking". And this is one of of the bases of functionality... and FREEDOM :)
It is real big mistake which prevent me before updating the browser in the future and eventually taking in mind to abandon it.
Well, who would use this slow, laggy browser when every other browsers support exactly same Webextensions? The unique addons were the only things that prevent the Firefox from complete death.
Mozilla needs to realize their engine will never be able to beat Webkit and should keep things that make Firefox special.
отличное расширение - удобно для сохранения, без него FF обеднеет
If you want keep on using MAF you can change to Pale Moon browser (a fork of Firefox)
Sehr gut, sehr effizient und Platz sparend.
Es ist eine Schande, dass die neuen Versionen von Firefox nicht mehr kompatibel sein werden.
Ein Grund für mich bei der alten Version zu bleiben und langfristig auf einen alternativen Browser zu wechseln. Ich werde nicht auf bewährte Add Ons verzichten, lieber verzichte ich auf FireFox!
I have never known a programmer yet who was anything but a waste of flesh! Mozilla Archive Format WORKS. Why the hell replace it with crap that doesn't? If it isn't broke, don't try to fix it! That is exactly why I moved to Linux and away from the windows crap to begin with! There is NO legitimate reason to upgrade stuff without keeping the "legacy" features that work!
Firstly thanks to the developers of this add-on. It was really great.
It sucks that Firefox has decided to break compatibility like this. I thought Mozilla would be reliable. WTF.
This app is invaluable and I have many files stored in this format.
I just can not be without it. Will I be forced to use older versions of Firefox?
Or even better, I stop using FF at all.
Hello this is not a review !!
we're just protesting & equally pissed off with Mozilla supporting off the MHT/MAFF project..
why would mozilla take such a rash decision....this is beyond our thinking..
but we can all gather together & pledge to keep this facility for future versions of firefox...
so I urge the developers of this addon to lodge a formal complaint & let us know for sure wht should be our next actions...
we're waiting eagerly & hoping for a 'saveful'-future of web pages...
c'mmon its 2017 !!
Again thanking the developer of this addon Christopher & Paolo...
Pls let us know how can we help you?? Can you create a pledge to save this addon & tag us on??
I think Mozilla has taken a foolish decision with MAFF and MHT file formats.
They were perfect. The file and folder alternative solution for saving web pages should be just an alternative, not the ONLY viable way.
I wish some third party developers will fill the gap with other browsers and let firefox work again as its users want.
I have tons of maff files, and hate their conversion to multiple files/folders, as they are less manageable and shareable. I'm totally disappointed.
I have used FF and Mozilla Archive format add-on since years. Thousand's of MHT saved as single file. And now no longer supported.
I just created an account here for the sole purpose to announce that I leave this browser.!!!!
I'm now on the latest Opera and i'm very pleased with my move. I have got back my .mht single file and the browser is incredibly fast. I will now close my account.
As with many of my favorite add-ons... Mozilla have either put too much load on the developer to rework their extension to make it work... or they ban it altogether (like here).
I've been using this browser since the pioneer days of Netscape Navigator... this is the first year I have ever considered switching primary browsers. But Mozilla has left me no choice but to look around.
I'd love to hear some developer feedback (even anonymous) as to why they are unable to implement an archiving tool into a modern browser.
Thank you Christopher & Paolo for the hard work you have put into this tool.
KEEP CALM AND CHANGE TO ANOTHER BROWSER!
Apparently, Firefox seems to have remained the only stupid browser that doesn't have the ability to save web pages in a single file. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MHTML)
For some unknown reason, since early versions, Firefox has never considered the MHT format. The MAFF component was the ONLY way to overcome this lack, but now it doesn't exist anymore.
Maybe the Mozilla team is too busy with its ambitious projects and doesn't care much about common users needs.
So, after some tests, I chose to migrate into "Opera"
I find it an excellent browser, stable, fast and reliable, with no bells & whistles, it supports MHTML NATIVELY !! (Just digit: opera://flags#save-page-as-mhtml into address bar and then clic on "enable" button)
Furthermore it supports uBlock Origin and many others add-ons. Now, the thousands of MHT files stored in my archives WORK PERFECTLY !!!
Absolutely no regrets for Firefox, indeed.
MANY THANKS to MAFF Developers who solved the deplorable lack of Firefox for many years.
To the developers of this plugin:
Thanks for making this great plugin. Even i had some problems recently to save files, it was doing awesome work and helping me a lot. It's a shame what Mozilla is doing with the addon's (and their developers).
Serious, it's enough. I was a loyal Firefox user for a LOT of years, but it's enough now. As the other user wrote already, the loss of this plugin (and other plugins as well) is a gamechanger, while Mozilla adds every bloatware into Firefox and isn't really better than Chrome anymore about this.
Keep your shining new Quantum sh*t for yourself, _i_ won't use it for sure. I don't need a faster and faster browser when the usability is completely down the drain because a poor and lightyears away from being complete addon engine. I'm not using much addon's, but those are essential and there is nothing comparable available. Firefox is frozen at me, updates are blocked and it will stay like that until i 100% _know_ there are updates for those few addon's or GOOD replacements for it. Or i keep migrating to another Browser. Meanwhile it doesn't matter anyway, who is collecting data, because everyone is doing it. But Quantum will NEVER happen at my PC's for sure as long you Mozzila people smoke this bad stuff. Thanks for scaring me away after all those years finally too, but it seems you really didn't lost enough people already.
Save Page WE is NOT able to be a replacements for this plugin, files are getting simply WAY bigger and more than 25% of the saved pages are simply destroyed, but working fine when saved with this MAFF addon.
The loss of this plugin is a game changer. I like many others have a vast library of MHT files.
The reason: you can save a page with active links. This MHT file is then content searchable within Windows via the standard Windows Search.
The answer ( of sorts ) i've found so far, Save Page WE, (not as capable). As for the reader, well there is a plugin for Chrome, EML, MHT viewer with Drive, which mostly works.
Word of course will read MHT ( after a fashion if it was saved with Mozilla Archive Format, and IE ( depreciated and gradually being replaced by Edge). Edge cannot by default read MHT. There is a plugin, but it is near useless.
A great loss.
Thanks Firefox for removing the MAFF Firefox extension.
Thanks for the conversion capability within this extension's 'options' button - it will come in useful before Mozilla update Firefox and finally make the extension incompatible. I used to save everything as a single file mht - but I gave up after compatibility problems. Some browsers would try and open mht, but get stuck in a loop, asking what program to use to open it with. Now I will convert these saved files to maff or html. Maff is more or less still future proof, since I can extract them with 7zip by right-clicking and look within the folder for the file to view them
Well ... with these terrible news from Firefox, it's time to say goodbye.
These people doesn't respect their users.
No way I will waste my time anymore with something as unpredictable as Firefox polices
I have really appreciated the effort you guys have put into the MAF project. So valuable - thank you! I would also be happy to pay for a MAF resurrection if they are not jaded by this experience with Mozilla.
I am really upset.
Many times I´ve changed to other browsers, and the maff add-on is the only reason i keep coming back to use Firefox. My thanks to the developers and my bitter protest against the decision to put aside the maff extension. (sorry about my english, is not my mother tongue)
I THINK THAT FROM NOW ON, EVERYBODY WHO CARES ABOUT THIS ADD-ON SHOULD STOP USING FIREFOX. I SURELY WILL DO IT.
LET´S BOYCOTT THE TEAM WHO THINK THAT DOING THIS WAS A GOOD CALL
"Replacement" extensions such as "Save Page WE" are completely useless, no they do not work nearly as well as MAFF because they simply technically cannot, it is totally ridiculous to think that any web page can be inlined into a single HTML file this has never worked and will never work because of the inherently complex nature of the different components of a web page.
The MAFF format brought something else : a standalone archive format for web pages that actually worked. One can, and people do, create MAFF files form scratch that contain mini web sites that can be viewed offline and shared in a simple single file format that is easily opened in Firefox (if only other browsers had supported MAFF)
A standalone archive format is an important privacy feature that you MUST promote against the Google point of view.
Without MAFF, there is no simple way to exchange web content and we are forced to use sharing platforms and feed their big-datas...
It is shameful that a standard for a standalone Web Archive Format does not exist. Please work on it..
Can't we preserve our years of .maff archives but continue to access them using Seamonkey with the appropriate plugin???
