Firefox fails when trying to save complete websites

Hi. I use Firefox for years and with the actual problems searching for a replacement did not find another browser, that I myself would consider as equivalent (in first place concerning privacy and ad-free browsing). The problems started with version 83 or 84 and there has nothing changed since. As I have no own Internet connection, I use to store the webpages on my disk to view them later offline. However, in lots more than 50% (probably over 75%) of save trials, Firefox fails! What I try to do is "Save As" and then selecting "as webpage, complete". In the "Downloads" tab, the page appears with the word "Failed" (instead of "Completed" + file size) below the filename. As I really need this feature, I actually use Google Chrome, that saves the pages properly. But, as I said, I'm not willing to give up the browser I trust and that I consider being simply the best. Thanks for any suggestions.
