Save and Organise web pages with this great addon for Firefox : ScrapBook

ScrapBook is a Firefox extension, which helps you to save Web pages and manage the collection. Key features are lightness, speed, accuracy and multi-language support. ScrapBook is aptly named: it is your personal repository for the text snippets, PDFs, web pages, movies and whatever you collect in your travels around the web. These three points are important.  ScrapBook is personal in the sense that your scrapbook is part of your Firefox profile by default.It is also personal in that you decide how you want to organise your collection.It is a repository since it makes a local snapshot of the web content you specify. Finally ScrapBook items can be in virtually any format: almost anything Firefox can display, ScrapBook can capture.
