For learning purposes, I'd like to download the html/css/javascript of sites.

Using Firefox now only seems to download the html page, images/css/js are not downloaded.

Is there a plugin to do this in Firefox?

It's a great learning tool for me.

In the Save As box, select Web Page, complete as the type.

That downloads the css and javascript, but not images referenced from the css. – Ken Kinder Aug 30 '12 at 15:52
Note that while this works on firefox, in Chrome you will get the html page only. – redochka Jul 29 '13 at 15:36
They don't keep the hierarchy structure in chrome – Totty.js Oct 13 '14 at 8:29
It also will break any relative paths in the HTML or CSS ie when an image is referenced as "/images/image.jpg" – Bysander Sep 4 '15 at 10:26

I guess httrack would suit your need

httrack is a steaming pile. Few software packages work that bad and require as much attention to even try to get to work. – ingyhere Jun 25 '12 at 23:36

Of course Firefox downloads all images/css/js as well, otherwise it wouldn't be able to render it.

Try downloading and installing the Plugin Firebug, it gives you easy access to all parts of a webpage.

Strictly speaking, yes, you're right. But you're not really answering the question being asked...that being the case, I'm not the one that down-voted you, so I can't speak as to his/her reasons. – David Thomas Mar 1 '10 at 1:36

Use ScrapBook which allows you to save web pages to a local storage. See also: Firefox plug-in that downloads a complete webpage?


I'd vote to close: Not Programming Related, but since it's so simple, I thought i'd give an answer too: File -> Save Page As... -> Type: "Web Page, Complete"
