What is MHTML?
It is a file format to archive web pages. When you save an online web page to your computer, its components like CSS files, images etc. are generally saved in a folder which is linked with the saved HTML document. But with MHTML, all such components are combined and saved as a single MHTML file along with the HTML document. This simplifies managing and sharing saved web pages. MHTML files can be opened by Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and many other browsers. Firefox doesn’t support this file format. Read more about MHTML on Wikipedia.

You can take backup of these saved MHTML files on cloud storage services like Dropbox and Google Drive – and refer them in future if required. This extension is highly recommended for students, researchers, developers and other professionals.

AFAIK Firefox doesn’t support MHTML format, so there is no point of creating Firefox extension. Firefox users should save web pages by using the usual Ctrl + S keyboard command, which saves web pages as HTML file.
