As of Firefox OS 1.3 (as far as I know) this is not an implemented feature. The only sites available for offline download are found in the Firefox Marketplace.

However, you could probably (though this may not be the best idea) save a website on the desktop, move the files over to your device via USB, and then run the website remotely on the device through the Files app. This however, has not been tested by me and may not work.

I use the app Manana which helps somewhat to view websites offline. You can get it from the Marketplace.

Hello Richard, Thank you for your response. I tried your suggestion and uploaded the webpage file plus the folder containing the support files eg css etc. Unfortunately, File Manager does not see the files as a website and just presents the html. Regards,

Hello Andrew, Thanks for your reply, which as you say allows saving of a webpage. All the text is saved and images, although the layout is altered. Links to external sites within the text are also saved. The site I am interested in has a menu which is not downloaded. I think you need to download each page separately. However, it is a solution if this is acceptable.

Hello, There is an app in Firefox called Screengrab which saves the webpage complete, not just the bit that is visible on screen. You can then transfer that to your mobile using the method described by Renard, above. Regards,
