    another feature i would like to see added to firefox

    another feature i would like to see added to firefox is a way to output an image capture of the whole page. if the print function can print the whole page, then this should be possible.

    So, not the same as <alt>-prntscn, which should capture the active window?

    I generally use the import tool for grabbing specific stuff. It is part of ImageMagick. Just select the area you want in a rectangle.

    But it only captures as much of page as is currently displayed, right?

    So for example, what I'm looking at now puts this text line I'm typing (in the editor) near the bottom of the screen, but if I want to click "Submit Reply" I have to scroll-- if I want to capture that part of the page, I have to take two or more captures and paste them together carefully.

    If I print to PDF I get the whole page, and I can use Inkscape to convert the PDF to PNG for example.

    There are other PDF to image converters, though Inkscape is scriptable and (having tried several ways to convert PDF to raster) the best option I've found.

    I use wallabag for that. I want the information, not an image. There is a firefox addon "Wallabagger" - works most of the time, but not always for really nasty, javascript-infested, pages. I've never tried it here. Let's see .... Nope. Wallabagger doesn't work on a page mid-edit.

    I'll post it and try again ... Nope. That didn't work either. Probably because the "grab" comes from the wallabag server, not my laptop.

    I have a huge amount of experience dealing with PDF at a deep level (coding, parsing, searching, type-3 font support, etc) - and avoid it for any content that doesn't have mandated page layout requirements.

    Firefox has a built-in screenshot mechanism. Right-click on a page and choose "Take a Screenshot."

    That's where I thought it was supposed to be and was surprised when it wasn't.
