How to Make Web Pages Available Offline on Firefox


Mozilla Firefox, like several other Web browsers, lets you save Web pages for later offline viewing. Firefox's feature ensures the original formatting and layout of the page is preserved, so you don't end up with a jumbled mess. While saving a Web page, or even multiple Web pages, is easily done, it would be difficult to download an entire website for later offline viewing. To do this, you would need to save each individual Web page within the site.

  • Browse to the Web page you want to make available offline.

  • Click "File" on the Firefox menu bar. Select "Save Page As" from the list.

  • Select "Web Page, Complete" under the "Save As Type" bar. This ensures the entire Web page is saved, including photos. It also ensures the page retains its original formatting.

  • Select the location you want to save the Web page to. By default, it saves to the desktop, but you can place it in a folder by clicking on the folder's name. Click "Save" when you are ready to save the Web page.

  • Enter the folder you saved the Web page in. Double click on the saved page to open it. The page will display in Firefox, whether you are online or offline.

Tips & Warnings

  • You will notice the location bar does not show the original Web page URL, but rather the location where the page is saved on your computer. You can bookmark the saved Web page for easy access by clicking "Bookmark" and "Add." In the future, you will be able to access the Web page offline through your "Bookmark" tool.
