Very Useful, Thank You Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a really useful add-on for people like me who do a lot of off-line reading. I've always saved tons of material to read off-line (fifteen years ago because I didn't want to tie up the phone with my 14.4 modem, evolving to now because I prefer using my e-reader over my computer screen), but the best way to get clean text and small files is to copy and paste or save-as text, and copying and pasting the URLs again so I don't lose links has always been a pain. The ability to add a nice clean URL in plain text at the bottom of my copied text is a great convenience. Thanks very much.

What would make this my dream utility, though, would be the option to *always* show the text URL instead of having to click the "Show URL" link to reveal it for a copy/paste. ETA: Never mind. I've discovered that the URL is always there when I select the text, whether I click the link to show it or not. This is, in fact, my dream utility. I can now just select all, copy, paste, and move on. The URL is right there in the text when I need it.

Again, thanks for the add-on. It's a great boon for me, and I'm so glad to see that you've updated it for 3.6 and 4.

Fixed version Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I had used this extension till I upgraded Firerfox and found most recent extension Savewithurl (http://nic-nac-project.de/~kaosmos/savewithurl-en.html). There are no Firefox 4 version in these days, so I have developed compatible version with Firefox 4: http://www.angelfire.cz/upload/savewithurl-FF2-FF4-0.2.9-fx.xpi

@ Morteza:

This addon works fine if you install the addon "MR Tech Toolkit" and configure it to NOT DO COMPATABILITY CHECK for this addon.

fix for FF 3.5.* Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It seems to work OK in FF3.5.4
You need to download the .XPI file not using FF from:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/downloads/latest/2369/addon-2369-latest.xpi?src=search
change the file extension to .ZIP
unzip the files into a new folder
edit the install.rdf file in text editor like Notepad to change to this:
3.5.*
save the file
zip the files into a new zip file
change the extention to .XPI
double-click the .XPI file

with mozilla 3.5.* ? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hello!
Is there any possibility to use this addon with mozilla 3.5.* because it is great!!??

this should be a _basic_ feature not an add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is of great utility to me, enough to choose not to upgrade Firefox if that implies loosing this add-on.

Alas I _accidentally_ clicked a "yes" one day - what hurry can do when you aspect _another_ dialog to appear - and installed a malfunctioning search bar. Finally that obliged me to completely remove Firefox, it was just dead, no Firefox window visible. I couldn't find the same Firefox version over the Web (3.0something I think), installed 3.5.3 and it said the add-on had to be desactivated.

#*!@! ;-(

Does the interface to add-ons really have to be such a mobile target, couldn't developers _please_ preview a clean stable interface allowing relatively marginal processes to take place, such as adding the Save Url code to the page? And in case of evolution, leave that interface survive and _aside_ add the extended one...? please...? _unless_ I'm missing something: maybe they realized that what this add-on does is quite a basic feature for a web browser, and there's some setup to just activate it... yes...?)

Terrific! I've been waiting for this! So glad! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been holding off upgrading to Leopard until I could save URL's in my website downloads. This is really important to me and I've been stumbling along with my old computer because it had the old SaveURL program in it and a new edition for Leopard wasn't yet out.
Now, my prayers have been answered! REALLY! I'm free to get my new Mac (which only comes with Leopard) because I can save the URL's on my downloads.
With Firefox 3.0.11 and this version of SaveURL, I can download a page, view it as it was when I first saw it, connect to its links, and, in addition, go back to the original website (using the URL) whenever I like.
Thanks so much for this! I would contribute if there were info on how to do it. I just want you to keep updating it, please!

It should add the URI only when you save the page, rather than all the time.

very useful plug in, but have problem with "Save Complete" plug-in Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I found it very useful and like it very much, but I have a problem too. When I save a page with "Save complete" plug-in (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4723), SaveURL will not work. How can I solve the problem?

Thanks

Ideal for tracking WWW pages you collect, and correct another reviewer Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I find this is a very useful addon and is on my must have list along with "Nuke Anything Enhanced" and "Title Save" which relate to URI tracking (see next paragraphs).

This addon works with most "average" web pages. There are plenty of frame based pages, and some "portal" type index pages which will get multiple "saveuri" insertions which can stuff up menus and navigation and make for ugly saving or printing. As workaround I recommend loading addon "Nuke Anything Enhanced" so you can remove extra "saveuri" and other page elements. That fixes a lot but not all cases.

For anyone who is looking to track the URI of where they obtained the saved/printed version, I think these features would help if they were added to future versions:

Item1: imbed comment in web html "[comment tag] saved from uri= http: ... [close comment tag]" at the top of html code. Some other browsers do this eg Microsoft IE6. This is also a feature found in addon "Title Save". This part of the functionality needs to be integrated into this addon as an optional feature. Not everyone would want to use "Title Save" addon, although I like this one too.

Item2: an option to switch off the saved uri" insertion AND/OR item one

Item3: optional status bar icon AND toolbar button indicating if item1 and item2 are on or off (could be color coded icon).

This would allow those frame pages to be saved by turning off addon visible "saveuri" feature and reloading the web page. In my case I would always have item 1 "on" and SOMETIMES item 2 turned "off".

To the reviewer warning about filename lengths: this addon does not change the save filename to the URI, so that review is irrelevant.

Update Note 2012:
I stopped using saveuri and mostly save pages with UnMHT 5.7.0 by arai_a. When I need the original URL it can usually be found by opening the MHT file in plain text editor (eg metapad) and finding header line "Content-Location:".
I have found that the MHT files now work well across several browsers (ie create in FF, read in opera or IE or chrome) which now make this an acceptable alternative. Earlier versions of MHT encoding did not do this.

Better than nothing Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Why put the URL at the bottom and hidden behind a link ? Why not activate the Save As with a button that saves the full URL and date-time downloaded in a thin strip across the top of the page. The name of the file should default to the title.

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Hello! Good addon... suggestion: There's an addon for Safari called "Download Comment" that saves the URL of a file when you download it and places it in the Comment window (in the info window). Save URL seems to be the closest thing that exists for Firefox, but I was wondering if a future version of SaveURL could also possibly save the URL of a simple file downloaded off the net (jpg, flv, midi, swf...), not just a webpage
Thank you!

Good start Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Adding also the date and possibly title would be nice. For more options see also Savewithurl here: https://nic-nac-project.de/~kaosmos/savewithurl-en.html I do a lot of arching and I have been waiting a long time for something like this that actually works reliably. Integrating something like PrintURI functionality in this would be great too (FF truncates urls if they are too long). Sadly, the search is still on. The layout of the page can make the url invisible, frames tend to confuse things and compatibility with NoScript is a major issue. When some of these issues are resolved I will be very happy.

Improvement required Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like this! Good job. One improvement required: to do the same thing when I save as "html only" and maybe as "text" too. Thanks
