Version 4.0.0 474.2 KiB Works with Firefox 38.0 - 38.*, SeaMonkey 2.38 - 2.38.*

Mozilla Archive Format 4.0.0 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.

Version 3.0.0.1-signed 524.3 KiB Works with Firefox 10.0 - 11.*, SeaMonkey 2.7 - 2.7.*

Mozilla Archive Format 3.0 features increased compactness when saving pages, as well as several other improvements and changes over the previous versions.

– Stylesheet rules that don't apply to any element in the current page are now removed from the saved file. This can greatly increase compactness when content is modified by scripts or other extensions before saving.

– The option to take an exact snapshot of the page is now selected by default, to take advantage of various improvements in the save method, even if it was deselected in a previous version of the add-on. The browser's standard save system and the integrated Save Complete component can still be selected from the options dialog and the internal configuration settings respectively.

– The notification bar with information about the original save date and location can now be disabled from the options.

– Now file associations on Windows are created correctly when using the add-on in third-party browsers based on Firefox or SeaMonkey.

– The option to display an archive information icon in the status bar is not available anymore, together with the option to display the icon in the location bar at all times. The icon can only be displayed in the location bar when an archived page is opened.

– The creation of MHTML files that are fully compatible with other browsers cannot be explicitly disabled anymore. All the generated MHTML files are now fully compatible, as long as the option to take an exact snapshot of the page is selected.

Version 2.0.1.1-signed 502.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.6 - 8.*, SeaMonkey 2.1 - 2.3.*

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

– Pages are saved instantly and can be much smaller, because hidden content that is not needed to display the current state of the page is not downloaded anymore. For this feature to work, the option to take a faithful snapshot of the page must be selected, which is the default.

– It is now possible to verify that all content has been saved, because images and other content that could not be saved are not connected to their original location anymore, leading to truly offline archives. For this feature to work, the option to take a faithful snapshot of the page must be selected.

– A notification bar with information about the original save date and location is now displayed for all archived pages.

– Updating to the new version can resolve problems caused by internal settings customized in previous versions, because they are reset to their default value. There is usually no need to customize those settings anymore.

Version 2.0 includes many other improvements and bug fixes. You can find the full list of changes and known issues on the official site: http://maf.mozdev.org/
