ScrapBook

Other Options for Storing Pages Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I have found unMHT to be most reliable at storing single pages for viewing later, and it can save all open tabs in one command reliably (to one combined file, or separate files).

I haven't used the others in a while but will try to remember as best I can.

DownThemAll worked good for getting a download of all the components of a page. Particularly useful if you had a site with numerous direct links to media like songs or text files.

ScrapBook (this), if I remember right, allowed you to download not only the page you were on, but also completely get all pages reached through links within the first page? But it seemed more unreliable than MHT and I eventually gave up on it.

Pocket allowed you to take just the links and then reopen them elsewhere.

Just thought I'd offer up options to people. Not sure many of them are working on newer FF, but unMHT is going fine, at least :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.8). 

DownThemAll!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I wanted to offer an alternative for folks with a certain specific need like I had. I wanted to download websites for offline viewing for on trips or in places without internet. Downthemall was fair, but didn't have all the options to download whole sets of sites as quickly as possible. I tried ScrapBook Plus and a couple other addons I found in search, but none made things as easy as I'd hoped.

Then I stumbled accidentally across unMHT, which seems to have been the best answer. You can download many\all tabs at once, saves each tab (or all the tabs together) as a single file, and the pages reopens properly to what I was looking at better than any other tool I've used.
It doesn't help you scrape links quickly, so it's a different type of tool. But if anyone else is looking for such a tool, suggest you try it out :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.16). 

ScrapBook Plus

A Helpful Alternative? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I long looked for ways to store pages for viewing later since I had limited Internet time. I also liked to store up large archives of certain topics (recipes, programming examples, etc). ScrapBook Plus worked ok, better than many I found from many long searches, but all had limitations. I couldn't find any that could store some of the javascript pages I used (Sporcle) well, and downloading pages was usually a slow, methodical process. But think I finally came to the best solution inadvertantly and wanted to offer it up...

unMHT

It stores the entirety of the page in a single file format, allows you to save multiple\all tabs in one command, and has some fairly useful settings (like user-defined keyboard shortcuts). It answered my needs.

It might not be useful if you wanted to scrape download links from a webpage and download them, and it also doesn't store files separately which might be more use to webdesigners.
But for pulling the page back up cleanly and easily, and for quick downloads of lots of pages I'm looking through, I've found that is a great option.
