This plugin looks interesting, but it seems to rely on the existing
functionality of Firefox to save web pages. As I want to save a page
with its picture and CSS, I would need to choose “Web page, complete”,
but the FF documentation says “This choice allows you to view it as
originally shown with pictures, but it may not keep the HTML link
structure of the original page”, which worries me a little.

Do you only save the html or the pictures as well. If it's the latter,
have you had any issues about links not being preserved?
