  1. I hadn't used a screenshot tool in Firefox for ages until yesterday. I had previously used Screengrab but that does not work in FF8.

    I needed a picture of the entire page and found Abduction! to be the simplest add-on: no toolbars, no faffing around uploading to an online editor etc.

  2. That's exactly why I asked. "Abduction" sounds exciting.

  4. You can use the existing Tools->Page Info-> Media to get images from pages which are protected with the clear.gif and other protections. I use Download Helper as an add on to get FLV SWF and MP4 within a page as well. As outdated as it is though, IE6 can still scavenge things from the temporary internet files really well.

  5. For FF screenshots: Aviary! I ignore most of the suite but the screenshot bit of things is awesome.

  6. I really like using the Picnik plugin for screenshots in Firefox.

  7. In Windows, Alt+PrintScreen will take a screenshot of just the active application (e.g. Firefox). Paste into Irfanview, press S to save - done!

  8. I love Pixlr Grabber because you can choose to get a screenshot or just a selected portion of the page. I have not had any problems and it seems to be updated often since it works with the newest version of Firefox.
