- by Firefox user 12458171, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Page Saver is the finest page- or image-saving extension that I've ever seen, by a pretty good margin. Simpler, smoother, more effective, and considerably more flexible than most other browser grab-oids.
- by Pollux, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 51° With this page : https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/pagesaver-we/, i have the error : "Unable to capture page: internal browser pages cannot be captured" !?
2° it misses the ability to save as pdf instead of png or jpeg, as with pdfit (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pdfit/)The "internal browser pages cannot be captured" message is caused by Mozilla's restrictions that prevent add-ons from accessing certain pages, including those at addons.mozilla.org (we plan to improve the error message).
Since most modern operating systems provide a "print to PDF" feature, we do not plan to add that capability to Page Saver.
- by Firefox user 6696096, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5I loved the Pearl Crescent addon before FF57, but WE version is lacking some features:
1) capture the page without visual scrolling ***
2) use hotkey for capturing ***
3) save to Downloads\SUBFOLDER (like Downloads\PageSaver or something user-defined) ***
4) automatic filename increment postfix on name collision (instead of file overwrite) ***
5) some kind of solution to capturing of the fixed elements - for example the fixed footer panel (position:fixed; bottom: 0;) on "https://modnakasta.ua" is repeated on every scroll, instead of being drawn in the actual position (bottom: 0; in this case) or only once (as Screengrab addon does)
The features marked with *** were present in former versions of Pearl Crescent addon and/or are present in current addons from other developers (like mentioned Screengrab addon).
But Page Saver WE works faster on long complicated pages! ;-)
- by Firefox user 13502162, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5Beaucoup plus compliqué que Pearl Crescent Page Server. Ne permet pas la copie d'une plage sélectionnée.Please excuse my English response.
It is true that Page Saver WE does not yet include all of the features of our “classic” Page Saver, but we hope to improve it in the future. I am not sure what you mean by Page Saver WE being more complicated, so please let us know more via email@example.com. Thanks!
- by sdschramm, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5I made the switch to Firefox 55 and the "multiprocess/WebExtensions" and the old Page Saver was keeping me back. I tried so many alternatives and they all sucked. Then I found this one and so far its the best. My only two complains are 1: I wish I could save the screenshots to my desktop instead of the downloads folder and 2: I wish the full page screenshots would work in the background instead of having to wait for the page to scroll and stich them together. Otherwise it seems to work very well! Thank you!
Developer responseposted 4 years agoThank you for your review. Unfortunately, Firefox's implementation of the WebExtensions API only allows saving to files within or below the configured download directory. If you want the Page Saver image files to go to your desktop, you will need to change your downloads directory within your Firefox preferences.
Scrolling to capture an "entire page" image is clearly not as good as grabbing the entire page without scrolling. When we created Page Saver WE, it was not possible to capture without scrolling. However, recently Mozilla has made additional canvas APIs available to WebExtensions which may allow us to avoid scrolling in the future.
- by Aurelius Max, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I tested Version 3.0.21 (Last Updated: June 22, 2017)
on Firefox 54.0.1 (32 bit) on Windows 8 with 3.5 GB memory.
It installs Ok.
The first page I tested it on was a small reddit subreddit.
It captured the page and opened a save page dialog to save the capture as a PNG file. This worked.
The second page I tested it on was 4chan's Comic and cartoon catalog, not particularly large with small thumbnails.
This also worked, the webpage is longer at 11000 pixels and I noticed the capture took longer.
Note it captures any hover regions as you would see them yourself when scrolling down a page.
I tested it on four more pages, largest size 2.8 MB, smallest 53 KB.
I've been a long time user of the older Pearl Crescent Page Saver, and was looking for a new saver for my new firefox profiles, and this fits the bill.
EDIT: I further tested changing the File name pattern to "%t %Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S" - to get finer-grained timestamps - and this worked.
- by lysathor, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5* can take visible portion
* can take full page
* full page is real full page even if the page has a header area that stays if page is scrolled - many other screenshot tools cannot handle that
* has options to configure
- cannot select regions to be captured (please add this feature)
- no keyboard shortcuts
- page needs to be scrolled (do tue web extension?)
- missing option to capture only a region
