OVERVIEW

Save Page WE provides a simple facility to save a web page (as currently displayed) as a single HTML file that can be opened in any browser. The saved page is a highly accurate representation of the original page. Multiple pages can be saved either by selecting multiple tabs or by loading a list of page URLs.

Save Page WE is implemented using the WebExtensions API and is available for both Firefox and Chrome with identical functions and user interfaces.

If used with Print Edit WE, Save Page WE now requires Print Edit WE 26.1 or later for full compatibility.

OPTIONS PAGE

The Save Page WE Options page can be accessed as follows:

• Firefox - Right-click on the toolbar button, select Manage Extension, click on the ••• button and select Options.

• Chrome - Right-click on the toolbar button, and then select Options.

TOOLBAR BUTTON

After installation of Save Page WE, there will be a new blue 'floppy-disk' button on the main toolbar.

To save the web pages in all of the currently selected tabs file, just click on the Save Page WE toolbar button.

There is are options to set the button action as:

• Save Selected Tabs (Basic, Standard or Custom Items)
• Save Listed URLs (Basic, Standard or Custom Items)

There is an option to prompt the user to enter comments when saving the file.

There is an option to use the old save method, as used in Version 18.0 or earlier.

There is an option to always show the 'Save As' dialog box when saving a page. If this option is not enabled, the 'Save As' dialog box will only be shown if the Chrome 'Downloads' option is set to 'Ask where to save each file before downloading'.

There are options to specify the format of the saved file name. See the 'Saved File Name' section below.

By default the saved HTML file will have a '.html' extension.

CONTEXT MENU & BUTTON MENU

• Save Selected Tabs
     - Basic, Standard or Custom Items

Note, the 'Remove Resource Loader' menu item is only shown when viewing a page saved by Save Page WE 15.1 or earlier.

Note, the 'Extract Image/Audio/Video' menu item is only shown on the context menu when right-clicking on images in saved pages.

There is an option to include an information bar at the top of the saved page.

There is an option to include metrics and resource summary in the saved file.

There is an option to set the maximum depth of saved nested frames/iframes.

SAVED FILE NAME

There is an option to specify the format of the saved file name.

This format is used when saving the complete page and when extracting a resource (Image/Audio/Video).

The saved file name may contain the following predefined fields:

• %TITLE% - (saving a page) the document title or if this is empty the same as %FILE%
• %TITLE% - (extracting a resource) the same as %FILE%
• %DATE(x)% - the current date in YYYYxMMxDD format, where 'x' is any character or can be omitted.
• %TIME(x)% - the current time in HHxMMxSS format, where 'x' is any character or can be omitted.
• %HOST% - the host name in the page or resource URL
• %HOSTW% - the same as %HOST%, but without the 'www.' prefix.
• %PATH% - the path in the page or resource URL.
• %PATHW% - the same as %PATH%, but without the '.extension' suffix.
• %FILE% - the file name in the last segment of the path in the page or resource URL.
• %FILEW% - the same as %FILE%, but without the '.extension' suffix.
• %QUERY(p)% - the query string in the page URL if 'p' is omitted, or the value of parameter 'p'.
• %FRAGMENT% - the fragment string in the page URL.

There are options to replace spaces in the saved file name with a user-defined character and to set the maximum length of the saved file name.

CONFIGURING CHROME

Go to Chrome Menu Button > Settings > Advanced.

In the Downloads section, set the downloads folder location, and enable or disable the 'Ask where to save each file before downloading' option.

After saving a page, a download item will appear in the download bar at the bottom of the browser window. Click on the arrow in the download item and enable or disable the 'Always open files of this type' option.

LOADING RESOURCES

There is an option to set the maximum time allowed for loading a Listed URL.

There is an option to set the maximum size allowed for large or repeatedly referenced resources.

There is an option to set the maximum time allowed for loading individual resources.

There is an option to allow loading of passive mixed content (image,audio,video).

There is an option to send a referer header when requesting a resource. The options are: do not send a refer header, send a referer header with origin only, or send a referer header with origin and path (origin only in private browsing).

UNSAVED RESOURCES

There is an option to show a warning if any resources cannot be saved.

There is an option to show a list of all resources that cannot be saved.

There is an option to remove URLs of unsaved resources, which avoids unsaved resources being loaded from the internet when the saved page is opened.

USING AUTOMATION

There is an option to use automation mode, allowing a page to be saved from the command line.

If this option is enabled:

• When Firefox starts, Save Page WE will be automatically initiated using the current Button Action.
• When the save operation is complete, Firefox will be automatically closed.

To exit automation mode, immediately after Firefox starts up, use the 'Cancel Save' menu command or keyboard shortcut to cancel the save operation, and then disable the option to use automation.

Note, the new saved method is always used when the use automation option is enabled.

SAVE METHODS

Below are some important details about the new and old save methods.

Old Save Method:

• The default in Version 18.0 or earlier.
• Remembers the last save location in both Firefox and Chrome.
• Cannot save a few pages (e.g Yahoo) in Chrome 84 or later.
• In which case the save will fail without any error messages.
• Use the new save method for these pages.

New Save Method:

• The default in Version 19.0. Optional in Version 20.0 or later.
• Remembers the last save location in Firefox 78 or later, but not in Chrome.
• Can save all pages.
• Other download extensions may change the saved file name to a UUID.
• For example "9bd65c08-5f1c-491c-bf61-63d90638bf9e.html".
• In which case try uninstalling and reinstalling Save Page WE.
• Or use the old save method.

SAVED FILE FORMAT

The HTML elements (as currently displayed) and all of the referenced resources are saved in a single file (.html).

External CSS style sheets are converted to internal CSS style sheets. Frame contents and external scripts are stored as UTF-8 data URIs in the 'src' attribute. Iframe contents are stored as UTF-8 text in the 'srcdoc' attribute.

All binary resources (images, fonts, audios, videos, etc) are stored as Base64 data URIs. CSS images referenced multiple times within a frame will only be stored once in that frame. CSS fonts and HTML images/audios/videos will be stored once for each reference.

Note that not all cross-origin frames can be saved. A cross-origin frame will be saved only if all of its cross-origin ancestor frames can run content scripts. Scripts in cross-origin frames are not saved.

There is an option to format the HTML source code in the saved file.

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
