Quite a helpful add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on allows me to store my HUGE collection of saved webpages more efficiently and more organized.A folder with 50 saved HTML pages would had 50 pages and 50 folders, Now not only do I get more faithful snapshot of the page being saved, but also I get less clutter (50 files), and better use of my valuable disk space, thanks to the compressed pages.

wont save page

still incomplete for me Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The day I'll be able to "faithfully" save what's in pages like this:
http://www.gazzettino.it/foto/venezia_ponte_di_rialto_danneggiato/0-52670-319541.shtml

or this:

without loosing a single (CSS) background images and (javascript) functionality in the offline saved version/archive I'll be happy and satisfied...
Until then I can't rate this more than 3 stars as, anyway, this is a nice addons for opening mht file and save ALMOST complete web pages.If the saved archives had maintained all css-background images and functionality I would have rate it 5 stars.

I hope your extentions will be compatible with Firefox mobile.

Works well (edited for clarification) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just have some questions - what's the difference between 'Preserve scripts and source using "Save Complete"' and 'Take a faithful snapshot of the page'? Why is the MHTML checkbox available for both options, and what does it do exactly? As far as I can tell, both .maff and .mht are available after a Ctrl+S regardless, and the options (EDIT: by options I mean combinations of complete/snapshot and MHTML checked or not checked, not selecting a file extension) don't even seem to affect which extension is selected by default; it's always the last one used. Unrelated, but I like that you're getting rid of the "Add-on bar" and "Address bar" options under Interface, I don't see myself ever using them. "Address bar, for archived pages only" and "None" are the only two real options.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.9). 

The options you mentioned determine whether active content on the page is saved or not. Active content doesn't usually work correctly offline, thus the most useful option is the "snapshot", and it is the only save method available in the user interface of version 3.0.

Disabling the MHTML checkbox causes the add-on to create a legacy file format that is not supported by other browsers, and the option has also been removed starting from version 3.0.

MHT needs to work with Adblock Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Most of the problems are from using ADBLOCK with the "Not Saving Popups" (which tell me little and require me to click for almost no reason -- Here is a hint FIREFOX makers, ONE POPUP + scroll list of errors, not 20 or 30 popups one after another -- make it a LIST with a single close button).

If the only option is to repeatedly click "CLOSE" then there is no option, only lousy programming resulting in a bad interface.

FIREFOX & MHT don't respect ADBLOCK when saving a webpage. They try to save the complete webpage (which is often filled with unwanted ads or other time-wasting junk) and not the ADBLOCK-FILTERED webpage.When I save a webpage I *WANT* the ADBLOCK-FILTERED webpage saved. Simple as that.

Mozilla Archive Format would catch on faster if FIREFOX stopped the tard-popup error gang-bang and presented only one popup with a scroll list and if Mozilla Archive Format saved the ADBLOCK-FILTERED webpage we wouldn't have any "MISSING ITEM" errors while saving a webpage *AT ALL*.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.9). 

The fact that some content appears in saved pages, despite having been blocked by Adblock Plus, is a known issue. It does not always happen, but we are looking into possible ways to resolve it.

If you would like to provide more information on this or other problems you experienced, you can find the official feedback page at http://maf.mozdev.org/feedback.html.

Great, useful addon with one "flaw" Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hello, after seeing that one of the admins responded to the posts here (as far as 2 pages back), I realized that writing a review is a good way to address this issue of mine + at the same time praise all the good things.

This addon is great - I converted to FF from Opera, so I was used to use .mht file format, but FF didn't provide it naturally, which is a shame, but that's how it was. For archiving purposes, having one file (.mht) is better than having two items (html + folder, which has many other items).

It's like videogames, which has one big .dat file, or few big .dat files, or those with thousands of files. It's not practical and it's not convinient.

This being said, I have problem with this:



"The download cannot be saved, because an unknown error has occured

Please try again"



The general way I am moving in my browser using is to do things faster. Mouse gestures, different helpful addons which improves your speed while browsing. I even saw addon which allowed you to save images to predefined folder just by double clicking on them - speed is good, right ?
Yet, this addon works unintuittively against that when it comes to saving any page. I CTRL+S, select a name (or leave the one that is there) and then I have to wait. I am not sure how long, it varies. For example for
website of Guardian, it's 5 seconds on my 4mbit connection. And it's just 1,5MB file, what about webpages that has 10-15MB (for example forum threads with lots of images) combined with something I am already downloading, so I would have to wait a minute or two ?

This is bad. The bad thing is also that you don't know how long you have to wait - there is sometimes popup window in the lower right corner of my browser, saying "all downloads finished". But sometimes it doesn't appear. And when I want to download a page and I am already downloading a file, it won't appear.

I like how Firefox naturally handles image saving - it also takes time, but you can click "save as", select filename and immideately close the page. No error prompts, it will silently download in background.

Besides, the page is already downloaded in memory, right ? When I am on a page and it's 100% loaded, I can see the page, text and images there, why not download directly from the memory ? The way it is now suggests that the entire page is being downloaded again, which seems to me unnecessary - you basically download every page you want to save 2 times.


Still, 4 stars, as this addon shows promising future and has a care of developers.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.9). 

Thank you for writing a detailed review! You may be interested in trying version 3.0b1, available from the "Development Channel" section, that might address some of the issues you experienced. If you still have specific issues, you're welcome to report them through the feedback page (http://maf.mozdev.org/feedback.html).

All Local? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is one of my favorite add-ons, but does it send my pages to your server? Or is it all done locally on my machine?

If it's all local, why does it take so long? It usually says it's going to take a few minutes, and usually takes a couple of minutes, but why?! The pages are already loaded, why doesn't it take 2 seconds instead of 2 minutes?

Is it sending my pages to your server?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.9).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

This add-on works locally, however versions below 3.0 might still download additional content referenced by the web page, even if it is not currently shown. The latest version 3.0b1 should work better for your use case.

Excellent addition! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's my best!

Questions about MAF Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've been very happy with this add-on for some time, but have had some recent problems. My questions are:
1. I'm using Firefox 20.0.1 and found that MAF 2.0.9 would not work. When I upgraded to MAF 3.0a3, it works. Why is this not made clear on the MAF web site?
2. What is the difference between MAF (as on maf.mozdev.org) and MAF w/MHT and Faithful Save (as on addons.mozilla.org)? If they are the same, why are there 2 different sites, making them look different?
3.Why doesn't the Feedback page on maf.mozdev.org provide a contact for the developer? Why does the link on that page to the maf mailing list not work?
4. Using MAF 3.03a, I find that MAFF files are bigger than MHT files, and they are both much bigger than HTM files. Why is this so?
If you prefer, please reply to me at LDGraham AT iinet DOT net DOT au.

Thanks for getting in touch, I've just updated the contact information on mozdev.org after the recent mailing list downtime. I also have trouble updating distribution files on mozdev.org, so you might be experiencing unwanted differences between the two versions.

The latest version is now 3.0b1 on addons.mozilla.org. If you still have doubts about the saved file size with that version, you're welcome to provide more details through the updated Feedback page.

This is a wonderful addon that helped me to save the information. But, please, update it to the current vesrion SeaMonkey.

SUGGESTION Rated 5 out of 5 stars

DEAR FRIEND,

I AM STUDENT + RESEARCHER. I WAS WONDERING FOR THIS TYPE OF ADDON AND THEN ONE DAY I SEARCH IN MOZILLA ADDONS SITE. AND I FOUND TWO ADDONS

1.Mozilla Archive Format AND 2.UnMHT

I USE BOTH THE ADDON EXTENSIVELY AND FIND Mozilla Archive Format BETTER THAN UnMHT.

BUT I FIND ONE FEATURE OF UnMHT BETTER THAN Mozilla Archive Format.

SO I KINDLY REQUEST YOU TO ADD THIS TWO FEATURE IN Mozilla Archive Format.

SUGGESTION:

AS YOU KNOW FIREFOX REMEMBERS SITE PREFERENCES. I USUALLY ZOOMS PAGE
TO BETTER READING AND VIEWING PAGES.

MOZILLA ARCHIVE FORMAT SAVES FILE LIKE
file:///N:/Current%20Affairs%20Today%20-%20Current%20Affairs%202013012.maff?web_archive_page=1

AND UNMHT SAVES FILE LIKE
unmht://unmht/file.5/N:/Current%20Affairs%20Today%20-%20Current%20Affairs%202013.mht/index.html

UNMHT ADDS PREFIX unmht://unmht/ BEFORE THE ORIGINAL SAVE PATH, SO FIREFOX ACT FOR THIS SAVED PAGES LIKE ONE PARTICULAR SITE AND REMEMBERS WHATEVER PREFERENCES WE HAVE SET FOR ONE PAGE TO ALL PAGES AND ALL FILES. I.E. ZOOM

SO MY SUGGESTION IS ADD PREFIX TO ALL SAVE PAGE ADDRESSES LIKE,

FOR EXAMPLE,

maf://mah/file:///N:/Current%20Affairs%20Today%20-%20Current%20Affairs%202013012.maff?web_archive_page=1

OR SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

I HOPE YOU WILL ADD THIS FEATURE IN MOZILLA ARCHIVE FORMAT.

THANK YOU.

Very useful, but cannot preserve JS functionality Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It works great, but cannot save JavaScript functionality. I want to archive a web-based presentation (e.g. using S5, reveal.js, etc) in MAFF, but the page behaviour with JavaScript is not preserved.
Test case: try to save this presentation: http://avdi.org/talks/confident-code-rubymidwest-2011/confident-code.html
