browsing off line

ME. operating system, Internet Explorer browser. I wish to view off line. I have made the page a favourite and checked the box view off line, and syncronised. When I try off line,only some pages are available, the remainder grayed out. I used to be able to view all pages, for all days/weeks off line . What am I doing wrong/ Can only view the available pages by the history menue, not the favourites menue. Any help please.
