FF 7b Rated 4 out of 5 stars

In FF 7b worked only when I created {3cd27e92-1a30-11da-94c6-00e08161165f} folder and httrack's files manually.

Missing Install Script? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I tried renaming the maxVersion as described by jeff below but when I tried installing on FF3.5.7, the error message said could not find install script.

Maybe FF3 uses a completely different install script from FF2?

cheers

httrack.com is down (500), mirror of the Windows installer here: http://www.chip.de/downloads/WinHTTrack_13008895.html

Nigel: There's a Linux version of HTTrack. You don't need the Firefox extension to run it.

Since it's not available for Linux it's of no use.

I love Spiderzilla add-on more than Firefox itself, I am ditching FF3 until it will work with Spiderzilla.

The most usefull feature to me is the CSV log file generated during the crawl. I can easily open it in Excel, analyse the flaws on the site and tie any loose ends. I use it daily for setting permanant redirects when moving sites.

Spiderzill will crawl the new and the old site. Than I pair the old ULRs to the new URLs in Excel, which will give me all the permanant redirects I need when moving sites.

Great tool of immense help to all SEOs

More on Spiderzilla for FF 3.0+ Rated 4 out of 5 stars

(Click on see all reviews- the main page here seems to make everything one long paragraph...)

To add to gastronomy's post on getting spiderzilla to work with Firefox 3+:
1) Download add-on and rename from .xpi to .zip
2) Unzip to a folder (I called my folder spiderzilla)
3) Find file install.rdf
4) Change extension .rdf to .txt Open Install.txt
5) Find both em:maxVersion= , set equal to 3.0.3.* (one is near the beginning of the code and one near the end)

3.0.3.* will make the add on work for version Firefox 3.0.3 and below. I suppose that you can set it to 4.* to make it work for Firefiox 4 when it comes out.

6) Save file and close
7) Rename Install.txt to Install.rdf
8) Rezip everything in the folder back to a .zip file
9) Change extension from .zip to .xpi
10) Double click/ open on file, if asked, open file with Firefox. Now would be a good time to select (check) to open this type of file with this application in the future. I save all my Firefox add-ons to my hard drive when I first install them so I don't have to search for them again on the net.


EDIT: John P - when you go to download the plug in, right click on the install now button and click "save file as" instead of having the xpi file trying to install before you modify it. If you've done that and it gives you a blank screen, I don't know what to tell you besides just get the httrack from the link posted above.

I have been using this add on for years and have found it to work great for me. Unfortunately it is not updated for 3.0 but that can be easily fixed. Down load the XPI file. Change the file extension to .zip, open the zip file and then open the install file. Simply change the max version to 3.0.0.0* and then save. After, change the file extension back to XPI and install. Now you will have a working SpiderZilla add on.

I created an account on this site just to say how much i hate this extension.

The features list and all the checkboxes for things you can turn on look great, but don't be fooled, it is IMPOSSIBLE to download a simple website with it, regardless of the options you choose, without it jumping all over the internet and downloading hundreds of megs of pure crap.

I tried to download the pictures in a simple image gallery, and NOT ONE OF THE PICTURES WERE DOWNLOADED!

I did manage to get about 400mb worth of content from sponsored links and unrelated crap when i came back to check on it though, and this happened the next 30 times I tried, each time with different options so as to be sure that there was no possible combination in which this thing actually worked.

Now that I know it doesnt, I am going to uninstall it, and write my own SIMPLE 100 LINE PHP SCRIPT TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT I NEED!

No wonder this guy no longer supports this, it sucks hard.

I miss a "finished"-message Rated 4 out of 5 stars

(That is annoying under Linux too. You get no messages if a process is finished, grr) it closes the doswindow but that could also be an error. Let a window pop up: "it worked succesful, this window will close in three seconds" or so and give users possibility to enable/disable that option.

Speak english on https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/1616 or ask a friend to do that for you. Oder sagt Dir das was, wenn ich jetzt anfange deutsch zu brabbeln? Nä, oder? Sieste, so gehts mir mit Französisch.

Please dont kid users by providing a useless extra-small picture. I see nothing on that. Why dont you guys provide big previews, if there is the possibility to do it ???????????

The program is useful and works, but after testing it and testing httptrack itself i uninstalled spider, cause htttrack says when its finished - see above.
