I like that too :)
To work off-line, I like to do save-as to some-name.html
with which firefox creates a directory "some-name_files"
for images and css style stuff etc.
BUT: A nit:
In firefox-esr, if you do "save-as ...", it will prompt with a file name
seemingly pretty directly copying the URL characters, in this case
"GNU Guix Reference Manual.html" -- which has spaces in it.
So my nuisance work flow is:
- copy url from browser line into clipboard,
- switch to a terminal,
- touch $(sanitize-clipboard-url), ;; hack also puts clean name-string back in clipboard
- switch to browser
- delete undesired file name string from prompt by pasting in the clean name string
- click save-as
I would really like Mozilla to solve this with configurable sanitization options
for the file name. Especially if I am looking at a page with an URL that has
weird non-ascii/utf-8 characters besides spaces.
But until Mozilla offers that, could GNU web pages have some kind of alias link on them
with a sanitized name to do save-link-as (not plain save-as) with,
so as to get a clean name?
