How to get old behaviour for firefox snapshot save back?

Posted

A couple versions ago (probably 3.6, since that is the last version that really worked problem free for me--so much for upgrades being better), I could save a website, and have it saved as I saw it: Unnecessary javascript was deleted and replaced by the text "script removed by snapshot save", sidebars and headers I blocked were not saved, and stylesheet changes via stylish/greasemonkey/etc. were taken into consideration.

  • I want that behaviour back.* How do I do it? Can anyone *please* help with this aggravating issue???

When I search for that message ("script removed by snapshot save") I find references to the "faithful snapshot" feature of the following add-on. Can you check whether this is what you are missing?

Ah, I see. Thanks. Guess it's an issue with the extension then.
