Version 4.0b1 443.4 kB Works with Firefox 38.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.7 and later

Mozilla Archive Format 4.0 beta 1 introduces partial compatibility with multi-process Firefox.

– When multi-process Firefox is enabled, compatibility information is displayed in English in the main pane of the options dialog, and the dialog is shown automatically the first time this condition is detected.
– Full support for displaying the contents of web archives.
– The notification bar with information about the original save date and location is not displayed when multi-process Firefox is enabled.
– Web archives cannot be created when multi-process Firefox is enabled, however it is now possible to use the browser's standard save system to save complete web pages in multiple files, without disabling the add-on first.

Several features have been removed or redesigned in preparation for full compatibility with multi-process Firefox:

– Taking an exact snapshot of the page is now required to create web archives, and the browser's standard save system can only be used to save complete web pages in multiple files. All the generated MHTML files are now fully compatible with other browsers, since the option to create partially compatible archives using the browser's standard save system is not available anymore.
– The separate Archives dialog and the integrated Save Complete component have been removed.
– The existing integration with the page context menu, the Tools menu, and the application menu of older versions of Firefox has been removed in favor of the integration with the customizable menu button.
– The preference to use the page title instead of the default suggested file name in the "Save As" dialog has been removed since this is now the default naming strategy in Firefox.

Mozilla Archive Format 2.0 provides several major enhancements over the previous versions.

For this feature to work, the option to take a faithful snapshot of the page must be selected.
