User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0) Build Identifier: this is a wish for implementing the ability to download an entire folder through http instead of ftp. i have referenced a benchmark in the url section: http://www.webreaper.net/ Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Bug 192570 asks for the same thing via ftp. Seems that the protocol is largely irrelevant if we opt to support this.
the power of maybe being able to do this without ftp is that not only could you download a folder full of files with one "save as" from someone who does not have an ftp site and just apache or something, you could also use it as a type of webcrawler for offline viewing with a laptop... also i think (i have not tried this) that ftp already supports this from within mozilla by associating the "ftp -i :mget *" command as a save as option...
Since http doesn't download "folders" at all, isn't this the same as bug 40253 (recursive download, following all links) ? PS : why don't you try the Linky extensions ( http://linky.mozdev.org/ )
I agree, this sounds a lot like bug 40253. But please reopen if you disagree or think an extension isn't good enough... *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 40253 ***
