Extracting data from saved (offline) webpages

Hi all, 


I have developed a flow that results in webpages viewed in Chrome being saved in a .mhtml format. These files are viewed using a Chrome browser. 


I want to extract data from these files, but when I open the files in Chrome the Power Automate live web helper tool doesn't display on tabs displaying the .mhtml file. Other tabs in the same browser displaying online webpages have the live web helper dialogue appear without issue. I have tried converting the .mhtml file to .html, but that hasn't made any difference. 


I appreciate the extract data from webpage function in Power Automate is intended to be used online, but I have my reasons for wanting to extract data from the offline files. 


Any ideas on how I can get Power Automate to treat these files as if they were online webpages? From what I can see the only real difference is the URL refers to a directory address on my device, rather than a webpage directly. Otherwise the webpage looks and functions as if it were online.
