How to save all files associated with a website?

I am an administrator (but not the creator) of a website that I am responsible for updating. I do not have the documentation that I need to carry out some of my tasks. So I thought I could find out enough simply by saving the site from Firefox. The last time I did this (several years and versions of Firefox ago), there was a "Save As" command that would save the main HTML file in a selected folder AND save all the referenced subsidiary files in a unique subfolder, so constructing a local version of the site. When I tried this today in v20.0.1, both "Save As" options created a single file of the current page with all the original cross-references left as links only. Is there some other way for "dumping" the whole application onto my local hard drive?

Chosen solution

I did originally save it as "Web page, complete"? , but the hrefs all referred to the real web site, not to any local versions.

I have also tried the Scrapbook addon. It does seem to do what I want, but I cannot trace where it has stored all the files. I will take that up with the Scrapbook author.

PS. Why can I not find any formatting controls when entering a question?

Did you make sure to save the page as "Web page, complete"?
