the developer has no intentions on fixing the problem with the error message. can't save picture. this problem is now older than dirt, still not fixed. should be 0 or negative stars

Updated and modified to work with SeaMonkey 2.30+ Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Latest fixes by Darek for FF 36+ and blackshore for FF have been included in the latest SeaMonkey-compatible 3.5.0 package available from my ftp server: ftp://ftp.2rosenthals.com/pub/Mozilla/Extensions/modified-for-SM-2.x/ .

This is a very useful extension, particularly for anyone creating documentation and needing screenshots of browser content.

Thanks so much to the original author and to everyone who has provided tweaks and fixes along the way!

ABDUNCTION 3.5 Browser Extension - 4.15.2015 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

ABDUCTION was a GREAT 'add- on' (extension) until Mozilla 'upgraded' the browser multiple times... in less than two months or so?! IF these 'extensions' are going to be available for DOWNLOAD (and update?) then they need to be VERIFIED to be COMPATIBLE with the LATEST version of FireFox! WHY is FIREFOX NOT VERIFYING 'compatibility' of downloadable plugins and extensions, listed onsite?? WTH??? Not everyone online is INTO patching CODE! :-(((

And THANKS! to Dukecze for the link to a FIX... This has been 'bugging me' ("Line 847, not enough arguments") for WEEKS! (Many / most users online don't know WHERE to revise the code... I found / opened it using 7-Zip in 'downloads...' but then it wouldn't replace it, in the program file!? HOWEVER WHY am I having to 'revise it,' manually? That's precisely... my POINT!)

Fixed addon for those who are too lazy to edit it themselves using Dareks fix:

Very nice, but a bit abandoned for now (manual fix for FF 36+ needed) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Need replacing this:
persist.saveURI(source, null, null, null, null, null, picker.file, privacyContext);
with this (one more null):
persist.saveURI(source, null, null, null, null, picker.file, privacyContext);
for FF 36+ in chrome/content/browser.js line 847 as documented here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Tech/XPCOM/Reference/Interface/nsIWebBrowserPersist#saveURI%28%29

FF37 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

if you replace io.REFERRER_POLICY_UNSAFE_URL with null in a 847th line of content/browser.js in *.xpi file will works.
P.S. You can use 7zip to open extension file (filename.xpi).

As excellent as it always was, but saving images seems to be broken as mentioned below.

Hopefully there will be a fix, but luckily for the time being the "copy" function still works fine, so clicking copy and pasting into an image editor is a workaround.

Problem.... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

with FF36.0.1 on linux (OpenSuser 13.2) i get [Exception... "Not enough arguments [nsIWebBrowserPersist.saveURI]" nsresult: "0x80570001 (NS_ERROR_XPC_NOT_ENOUGH_ARGS)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://abduction/content/browser.js :: abduction/action_save :: line 847" data: no]

How about having an icon for the saved websites....Is that too much to ask? Otherwise, this program does what it's supposed to.

FF36Fix + Missing Menu Entry Fix (German only) + File Extension Fix Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great! c00per's fix/hack for Firefox 36 (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/abduction/reviews/684774/) – posted first by Ben (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/abduction/reviews/682266/) also worked for me!

I use Firefox 36.0.1 with OS X 10.8.5. I used the OS X integrated compress/decompress functionality for ZIP files in the Finder to apply the fix (and BBEdit). Simply rename {b0e1b4a6-2c6f-4e99-94f2-8e625d7ae255}.xpi to {b0e1b4a6-2c6f-4e99-94f2-8e625d7ae255}.zip to uncompress, then edit the content (browser.js) and compress and rename again (the content if the folder, not the folder itself, as c00per mentioned).

The xpi file from spellbound (thanks!) did also work, but the german context menu fix was missing there (the entry "Save Page As Image" does not appear due to a wrong entry in the language file – only in german!).

If you also have this problem (should only happen in german language), you find the fix here:

But then I still had the following problem:
When saving images, the filename extension "png" (or "jpg") was not added automatically in the file dialog (OS X 10.8.5). With version 3.0.16 of the Add-On, this did not happen ... so I checked the code of browser.js and found a fix.

I had to replace the line:
picker.defaultString = filename + '.' + picker.defaultExtension;
picker.defaultString = filename + '.' + file_types[0].extension;

Hope that helps!

Fix/hack for "[Exception... "Not enough arguments" error in .../browser.js in Windows XP Rated 4 out of 5 stars

See c00per's review below. His/her Fix/hack worked for me. You must be careful to extract and compress the correct items as per instructions given there.

For Windows XP navigate to:
C:\Documents and Settings\%Username%\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default\extensions
and follow c00per's instructions.

Thanks, c00per!

Fix/hack for the saveURI() error Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I posted a link to modified XPI, but for some reason it was deleted. So I will try to explain in simple steps how to apply Ben's patch to XPI file.

1. Browse to the location of XPI file - in Vista/W7/W8 it's in C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default\extensions\
2. Open {b0e1b4a6-2c6f-4e99-94f2-8e625d7ae255}.xpi with some archiver (i.e. 7-Zip) and extract to folder.
3. Browse to chrome/content and open browser.js with Notepad or Wordpad.
4. Find and replace the line
persist.saveURI(source, null, null, null, null, picker.file, privacyContext);
persist.saveURI(source, null, null, io.REFERRER_POLICY_UNSAFE_URL, null, null, picker.file, privacyContext);
5. Compress contents of the folder (not the folder itself!) to zip archive and rename zip extension to xpi.

Btw, Mozilla, it would be nice to have some kind of comment/support section so that we don't have to post stuff like this in reviews.

Please some develop this great addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To Ben or anyone who could do his patch
share it cause i failed to edit the browser.js file
