Download Facebook wall

I see offline explorer has an option to "scroll every page down to load whole contents" - but you have to choose how many times to do it. For Facebook, there's no way to know how many times to scroll - you have to keep going until there's no more to load!

Is there a setting in OE to handle this?

You may set to 10000 or even 1 million times. Once Offline Explorer sees that it stopped scrolling, it would save the page.

I set the scroll count to one million (1,000,000) as suggested and started the download. The page loads in the OE browser and starts scrolling as expected. I then start working on other tasks on the computer. When I check on it 20 min later the page appears frozen. It's not scrolling, it's not downloading, and the "See More" button on the bottom of the facebook wall does not work.

I did some further investigation - it seems there's a bug in the internal browser causing the problem. If I open the FB wall in the OE internal browser and manually scroll down several times, it stops working after a short amount of time!

Yes, unfortunately the Internal Browser (MS Internet Explorer-based) eats memory on Facebook. It doesn't happen on other sites.

I tried to find workarounds, but nothing worked. I will try to add an alternative browser, like Chromium based in future versions.
