    I went on firefox and downloaded a website from it, but now I don't know what to do? Like I have the files on my desktop but how can I edit the website and go on it and be admin myself? Also what are some tips on not getting caught where it shuts down?

    If it doesn't have any CMS and it's just few HTML + CSS files, then yes. But I doubt that's the case.

    ^ That will rip HTML sites with no problem. If it has a custom CMS then it's pulling data from files that you can't access without admin details, so you can't really rip it fully.

    Like Jared said, use HTTrack.
    It'll download the raw html/css/js files but obviously it cannot download server side files such as php etc.

    What this means is basically that you'll get the look of the site but not the functionality.
