BEFORE YOU BEGIN
142 Navigate the Web
If you're browsing the Internet for information and you find an especially useful web page, you might want to save its contents to you computer's hard disk for further review. If you simply bookmark the page, you can return at any time, but that does not guarantee that the page's information will still be the same or that the page will still be available.
150. Save a Web Page
When you save a web page by following the steps in this task, sometimes all the graphics are not saved, even when you choose to save them with the page. This is not an error, but rather a reflection of the web page's design. If you want to ensure that all graphics are saved, you might want to install and use Scrapbook, a Firefox extension. See 152 Customize the Browser . Scrapbook also lets you capture a portion of a web page, a linked web page without displaying it, or just an image if you like.
Choose File, Save Page As
Display the web page you want to save to your hard disk. If you want to save the contents of a web page currently displayed in a frame, click within that frame first. Then choose File, Save Page As from the menu bar. The Save As dialog box appears.

Open the Save as type
list and select the web page format you want to use. If you choose the web page, HTML only
option, embedded graphics are not saved. If you choose the Web Page, complete
option, the graphics and text are saved in a separate file. If you choose the Text Files
option, just the text is saved.
If you've installed the Scrapbook extension, you can use the File, Capture Page command to save a web page and all its graphics. To capture files linked to the page such as sound or movie files, choose File, Capture Page As .
