How do I email a web page with Mozilla Firefox and not just a link?


Before installing Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer would allow me to select "send page as email", but in Firefox I can only send a link which sometime does not work. I want to be able to send a web page as an email. My friend says she can do it with Firefox, but I don't have that option. My email program is Windows Mail. Please help

Ask your friend which addon she has that added that feature to Firefox, and which version of Firefox.

This extension is the only one that I am aware of with that feature, and it was never updated for Firefox 3.6+ versions,

Using Windows Live Mail you just have to: (1) Go to the Web page you want to send; (2) "Select All" the Web page content; (3) "Copy" all the selected content; (4) "Paste" the selected Web page content on the new e-mail body field (must be under Enriched Text (HTML) mode).

Another way is using a Firefox Add-on for it, located at: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/fire.../email-the-web/
