I want to download a dynamically generated webpage. I don't think cURL, wget or Invoke-WebRequest command can do it.

In Google Chrome, the command below works:

$ google-chrome --headless --dump-dom https://foo.com > ./foo.html

Does the Firefox command-line mode have an equivalent tool?


So far I have checked

Maybe selecting the full web page (Ctrl+A) and using "View Selection Source" in the right-click context menu works to get the page source. You probably need to disable syntax highlighting to get clean page code.

You can also try the Inspector and select the HTML element and use "Copy > Outer HTML".

No. See the question: I am asking about "the Firefox command-line mode" not the GUI. I want to call the firefox command from some scripts (Bash, PowerShell Core or Python) that read a list of URLs and download target contents in a batch process.
