    I'm trying to record a website so that I can view it when I'm offline.
    Obviously the default options of recording from the various browsers don't work, so I wanted to do this with Fiddler.
    I have gotten to a point where I can just surf the page I want, and then copy all of the requests and urls to the right side, and than when I play it back, the page shown to me is the page from the Fiddler recordings.
    However, the iFrame part gets a "404 error" and so, I can view the whole page, but I can't seem to capture the iFrame.
    Is there any way around this?

    IFRAMEs are not special in any way; Fiddler captures and plays them back the same as any other response.

    If the frame URL has automatically changing data (e.g. a timestamp, query parameters, etc) you need to ensure that your AutoResponder rule properly ignores that data (e.g. by using a regular expression).
