Save the entire web page as single .htm file with firefox 3


We have been using firefox 3 for some days now, and side by side reviewing any new feature which we come across like Secure way of remembering passwords in Firefox 3 and A little known feature about Firefox 3.0

Today we found a new feature again in firefox 3.0 which allows you to save a any page on the web as a single .htm file with out any accompanying folder.

When you save a page in firefox previous editions as a html file, you would see a folder always with the html file which contains the related images and other support files.


But when you save a page in firefox 3.0 with Save as type as Web Page, Html Only.


You will see a single html files which contains everything, this html file will be a firefox document which you can take any where with ease and open in any browser you want.


We hope you like this small trick interesting, if you have anything to say please share it through comments.

    Just tried it with FF 3.5.1. It is single file with text only. No pictures or external files will be included. This is nothing new and expected from ancient days.

    thanks for this update, because i was wondering why there is no more folders accompanying a saved webpage, and i needed a confirmation that it’s the new feature.

    @nadya – it has been there in the options when you save the page, you just noticed it now after reading this article :)
