How to save a web page

(Redirected from Saving a web page)

Firefox allows you to save a web page to your computer so that you can do things like read it when you're not connected to the Internet. Here's how.

Saving a web page

  1. At the top of the Firefox windowOn the menu bar, click on the File menu, and select Save Page As.... The Save As window will appear.
  2. Use the Save As window to select a location on your computer to save the copy of the web page.
  3. In the Save As Type dropdown, choose how you want to save the page:


    • Web page, complete: Save the whole web page along with pictures. This choice allows you to view it as originally shown with pictures, but it may not keep the HTML link structure of the original page. Firefox creates a new directory where the page is saved to save pictures and other files necessary to show the whole web page.
    • Web page, HTML only: Save the original page without pictures. This choice preserves the original HTML link structure in one file.
    • Text files: Save the original page as a text file. This choice will not preserve the original HTML link structure, but will allow you to see a text version of the web page in any text editor.
    • All files: This is equivalent to "Web page, HTML only," but you may specify a file extension (e.g. ".htm" or ".shtml").
  4. Click Save. A copy of the page will be saved as the type you specified in the location you chose.
