@clark_kent
On my OpenSuse Linux, i found the install.rdf in directory "/home/<account>/.mozilla/firefox/yf3fcctd.default/extensions/jid0-GXjLLfbCoAx0LcltEdFrEkQdQPI@jetpack. I modified maxVersion and started firefox. It works now

Awesome add-on... until I upgraded to Firefox 8.01 and now it's not compatible!! Looking forward to it being 'updated' :)

EDIT: Just read GreenWyvern's post and it now works fine! Thanks!

Simple & Handy Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love how I can capture a whole page and crop which portion I want, the keyboard shortcut, and the ability to save in .png or .jpeg format. Nice!

Excellent add-on, I've been very happy with it. No other screen capture add-ons come close to this one. Was disappointed it didn't work with FF8 but thanks to GreenWyvern, it's up and running again. Thanks for the help, worked like a charm :)

How to update Awesome Screenshot manually so that it's compatible with Firefox 8, if you are comfortable with making small technical changes:

3. Edit the 'install.rdf' file with a text editor
4. Change maxVersion to 8.*

Restart Firefox. Awesome Screenshot is now compatible with FF8 and works perfectly!

A good tool when it works, however we seem to have to wait until the author feels like updating the addon for newer versions of FF. I'll go back to the "Abduction" addon which has few functions but is reliable for a screenshot. .
