    Me and a few friends are making a timebox sort of thing and we wanted to put our current facebook pages into there. I downloaded a program called Website Ripper Coppier. It downloads websites or pages and makes them availble offline. It works for almost alll sites but not facebook. Any1 know how to copy a simple profile page?

    Just right click>Save Page As... in Firefox. In Internet Explorer File>Save As... or Page>Save As...

    You could also screenshot the whole page as an image. There's a firefox extension that does that, though I can't think of the name. That's less likely to get messy.

    Except that things like links won't be usable, and the HTML won't be editable. Though, on second thought, why not do both?

    If it's kept long enough, the links will be useless anyway.

    I'm not familiar with how the social networking sites work, but have you tried a web archiver like HTTrack?

    Ih firefox, ctrl+S saves the page as a HTML document and a file of everything on it so that if you click on the file it loads the page just as it is in the browser.

    Facebook is AJAX heavy so a simple 'page save' might not do... although it should, in theory.
