Eureka! Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Many thanks to Michael for devising the fix but most of all thanks to anonymous reviewer .. whose post on 22 January provided details of the fix. I implemented the repair that he outlined and voilà! It worked like a charm in 3.0.17. Once again, thanks to both Michael and anonymous. We can only hope that the developer of Abduction will incorporate these relatively simple fixes and publish them in the next release ASAP.
And after all that time and effort, Abduction! is not radically better than other screen capture add-ons available like Screengrab (fix version) and/or FireShot. Screen Capture Elite used to be a viable candidate, but it, too, behaves badly with FF18.
Nibbling at the Edges Rated 1 out of 5 stars
All well and good to tweak the ads, but that does not address the primary shortcoming: even version 3.0.17 still does *not* capture images in FF18.0.1. I continue to see the same obnoxious error message "Sorry, the image is too large, Firefox can not save it." As a result, this add-on remains useless. I cannot begin to understand why Mozilla continues to label this as a featured add-on.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124-signed.1-signed).
Why featured? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Don't know why this is listed by Mozilla as a featured add-on. Using FF 18 on a Windows platform, I encounter the same problem reported by several other users: "Sorry, the image is too large, Firefox can not save it." even on the tiniest box. With no functioning save-to-disk capability and without any copy-to-clipboard option, this add-on becomes virtually useless.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed.1-signed).
