How to open .MHT files (3-step tutorial)


I have the habit of saving many tutorials that I find on the net, news, any article that I consider interesting, and in this way later when I have any questions / problems, I can consult the tutorials, etc.

The point is that I save them, but not as is normally done ... I always use the format MHT. I do it like this because it really bothers me (and a lot) that the file is .Html and then a folder with the images, that the folder is on top and the .Html in the last or final of the directory I don't like it. When saving them in MHT a single file is saved that contains everything, there everything nice and together hehe.

But, let's see a little more detail what MHT is:

(MIME HTML - Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension HTML or MHT). Standard that includes in a document resources that are typically externally linked. These resources can be files of images or sounds. This means that in the same file where the HTML code is located, the files of data encoded using MIME.

Let us begin…

1. The first thing, we must install Firefox, in case we do not have it installed already. Click HERE if they don't have the Firefox browser.

2. Now, we open the following link, it will install the add-on automatically:

This will open the following box:

We must wait about 4 or 5 seconds until the button that I indicate (Install now) is active, once we can click on it we do it and voila, the plugin will be installed.

3. Let's restart Firefox.

Ready, we already have the necessary addon (addon, plugin, extra) installed to open .MHT with Firefox.

That's all.

    and also to save it as true, it is very good, in fact it did so, but then the other browsers did not open it, and it just saved the page with its folder, but you are right, it is a bit annoying and uncomfortable, and sometimes it things are missing on the page.

        Sorry for the inconvenience it may cause you, won't you have a tutorial to install a KDE firewall on Debian?

    Gracia Gaara, the tip helped me a lot, I went through all the pages with guides that I had downloaded to this format and everything is much more organized. Now I am thinking of converting everything to pdf to have more compatibility.
