MozArchiver does not save some images?

Unread post by ltcomdata » 2022-05-15, 14:30

Hello:

I was trying to save https://newrepublic.com/article/115512/ ... house-moon using MozArchiver.
Despite choosing "exact snapshot" in the options, the initial picture at the top of the article does not get saved.
Is there a reason for this? Perhaps the image is considered as background for some reason and MozArchiver cannot save backgrounds?

Thanks!

MozArchiver is completely inferior to SingleFile or even the Chrome's built-in save as mhtm feature. Ironically it's Mozilla who dropped saving to mhtm support but it rivalry Chrome still keeps it up to this time. But frankly speaking, mhtm is completely inferior to SingleFile. SingleFile saves the whole page to plain .html and encoded all images to base64. In my own experience I rate SingleFile the best, later Savepage WE then finally Chrome's built-in save as mhtm feature. Too bad you can't use both of them on Pale Moon. To archive web pages, I use a portable firefox with SingleFile. The resulted .html opened fine on Pale Moon.

Just an update on my experience of MozArchiver vs SingleFile (on chromium Edge).

Neither option is optimal.
MozArchiver seems unable to save the initial image in here, though SingleFile does save it.
On the other hand, MozArchiver is quite able to save the initial image here, but SingleFile cannot.

I do like that SingleFile saves everything as an html file which can be opened by any browser without the need for an addon.
But given that SingleFile is flawed, I am not ready to switch to it.
And I would prefer it if the MozArchiver addon were fixed so that I would not have to use an additional browser to save webpages.

I usually save web pages with "ScrapBook Plus". There are cases where not all images are saved. To solve this problem, I made an add-on that modifies the HTML code that prevents images from being saved. Of course, this add-on can be improved (is not perfect), but I have tested it on all the pages I am interested in and it works fine.

Now I have tested it on the tree pages you mentioned in this post, and it works in these cases too (I saved these pages with "ScrapBook Plus"):

You could make a releases thread for this add-on... and also why aren't you using the add-ons site? I'm running it for a reason ;P people would get updates automatically that way.

Also, programming add-ons is a hobby for me, as I said in this post:

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=28384#p228275

These are the reasons why I don't think it is a good idea to use "the add-ons site". However, if this add-on is useful to solve some users' problems ("MozArchiver does not save some images"), I'm happy to contribute to solve them.

I don't know exactly what a "releases thread" is. I would appreciate it if you would detail what this means.

Just start a new thread in this subforum for your addon and update it each time you make a new release. You'll find several other addon authors, myself included, have done the same here.

Maybe you don't realise this but most add-on programmers do this as a hobby or just to tinker, and many aren't programmers by profession and learn as they go. There's no "quality requirement" for using the add-ons site aside from making sure it's reasonably functional, doesn't have browser-breaking bugs and is generally safe to use (as in not malware). I'm pretty certain you check all those boxes :)

The other thing is that Pale Moon is an extremely stable platform where addon development goes, unlike Chrome/Firefox where they keep introducing breaking changes every fortnight. So once you make your addon, it is up to you if you want to update it with more features. To date I can recall exactly one instance where old addons broke - when a non standard Javascript API was removed.

I want to enthusiastically thank @tellu-white for all his work.
I also agree that his add-on in invaluable and extremely useful.
I very much second the idea of adding it as an official add-on, but the decision should be his, of course.
Alternatively, a dedicated thread in the forum would be extremely helpful to the users of Pale Moon.

Thank you so much @tellu-white!

After this feed back from you, I decided to open a topic with this add-on, here:

https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=29050

On this occasion I posted a new version ( version VII ) that tries to solve some problems related to images placed in "amp-img" TAGs as well as those that have URLs only in "noscript" TAGs.
