    == Handy workaround for pages that won't save properly as HTML or XPS/PDF ==

    Like the Pearl Crescent folks, I'm an aficionado of being able to save web pages as they appear on the screen. One of the few times I've seen Mozilla actually listen to its users was when I reported Bug 293834, asking to have the Save feature save the current state of a page, including any text entered into fields, selected checkboxes / radio buttons, etc.; this was thankfully implemented (3+ years after my request, yes, but it was implemented, and without argument, something I've almost never seen on user requests since).

    Fast-forward about 13 years, and my current favorite way to save web pages is using the Mozilla Archive Format extension, which saves to a single file, either in IE's MHT format, or MAFF, which is like Firefox's "Web Page, complete", but all in one ZIP file, which has lots of advantages, including saving disk space and simplifying file management. Sadly, Mozilla Archive Format is one of many must-have extensions that can't be ported to the new, crippled WebExtension framework. I'm not yet sure what I'm going to do once Firefox ESR drops classic XUL/XPCOM extension support in August of this year.

    In any case, there are some pages that do not save successfully in HTML format, with or without Mozilla Archive Format. Printing to a file can sometimes work around this, e.g. using the Microsoft XPS Document Writer pseudo-printer, or printing to PDF on other platforms. However, some web pages stubbornly refuse to save properly in either of those ways, sometimes by design.

    A good example is Google Books search result / sample pages. In the past, my approach to these was to use Alt + Print Screen to capture the browser window, but this is a bit of a pain since you have to run a paint program, paste into it, save from over there, and then quit that app. Another hassle is that if you're saving a window screenshot to report a problem to, say, a webmaster, by default your image is going to include any other tabs you have open and what button-presenting add-ons you're running, which may have privacy and/or security implications.

    Pearl Crescent Page Saver bypasses both of those hassles and saves time in doing so, since it saves just the web content pane. At first I didn't think I'd use the Header and Footer options (especially since at first I worried they might obscure content rather than being prepended and appended to the image), but currently I'm using %t (page title) as my added header, and %u (page URL) as my added footer, which makes up for the fact that the browser's title bar (oh, yes, I still have one of those wrongly endangered beasts, being a Classic Theme Restorer user) and URL bar are not included in its capture images. Another great advantage Page Saver has over doing window screenshots is its ability to save an entire page as an image, not just the currently visible portion.

    One problem case I was hoping Page Saver would solve is pages that you want to save while an element is visible that only comes up during a mouseover. An example is the Amazon listing page for an item I was buying that had a "1 Applicable Promotion" mouseover popup. When trying to save as MAFF, the popup would disappear when the save window came into focus. Since I couldn't mouse over to the camera button, I assigned a Page Saver keyboard shortcut (Ctrl + Alt + P). However, although the popup remained visible during saving, the screenshot produced is evidently not based on the dynamic state of the page, as it was missing the popup. A more serious problem was that after assigning a keyboard shortcut, the Page Saver functionality kept randomly activating when I wasn't pressing the assigned key combo, so I was forced to unassign it (and for this reason I reduced my rating from 5 to 4 stars). I guess for now in these cases I'll have to stick to the old standby of Alt + Print Screen plus a paint program.

    It's good to see that there's a WebExtension port of this add-on, though it'd be nice if there were some documentation on which features couldn't be ported to the WE APIs. Looking at one of the screenshots, it appears that the header and footer options are unfortunately among those. Finally, it'd be nice if the documentation were updated to remove the stuff saying that certain features only work in the Pro version, which is apparently no longer sold.

    UPDATE:
    I decided to try installing the WE version in Tor Browser because I wanted to save some telegraph.co.uk pages whose photos were missing (due to JavaScript lazy-image-loading stupidity) when saving to MAFF. Saving to "HTML complete" or printing to .XPS file also produced bad results. I didn't want to restart the browser, as would be required if installing the XUL/XPCOM version of the add-on, because Tor Browser's non-cookie-retention would require me to re-login with the one working set of bugmenot.com credentials I'd finally found, etc. However, after waiting for the annoying auto-scrolling that the WE version has to do when capturing (compounded by this running on my slow netbook, on a long page), I opened the image and found it was just a long skinny pillar of pure white.

    I uninstalled the WE version, installed the classic XUL version, restarted the browser, re-logged into the Telegraph site, re-expanded and 'Load More'd the comments, and then captured the page. The PNG file was saved instantaneously, and properly contained the content that it was supposed to.

    I was tempted to leave a negative review of Page Saver WE, but I know the developers are hamstrung by the ill-conceived WebExtension platform, so I'm just updating this review of the old, working XUL extension.
  • Très simple à utiliser. Le résultat est immédiat.

    Thanks for your review. Our upgrade path is our Page Saver WE extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/pagesaver-we/
  • hgjhfgjj
  • ddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
  • 使い勝手どころか、何をどうすればよいのか不明。以前の操作性に戻して欲しい。
    Page Saver WE is our replacement for this add-on. Please use it in Firefox 57 (Quantum) and newer.
  • Muito obrigado pelo Page Saver Screenshot Tool!
    Essa ferramenta é muito útil.
    Esse aplicativo merece doação!!
  • ※日本語表記対応
    シンプルに保存できながらページタイトルを画像に含ませたりが可能なので便利です。
  • Consider adding PDF to PCPS! Of course with working links, etc. Too many addons come close but never work or are online scam versions that capture other info, etc. I snapshot into Evernote, etc..because their webclipper SUCKS...and never retains the original page look.

    Even if you can't add PDF save...at least add ability to be able to "click" on link that is saved, if it is selected..so a user can go back to it later if needed.

    Thanks!
  • UPDATE: My apologies! Today, in my add-ons list, PCPS showed as waiting for a restart to update. I have no idea what happened or why, but it's working fine now. Hallelujah! :D

    Just switched to Firefox 51.0.1 and for the first time in years, PCPS won't run. Keeps telling me it failed to save image because of a "file type error." It's always been one of my favorite tools, hate to see it die.
    I am sorry about this problem. Is multiprocess mode (also known as electrolysis or e10s) enabled in your Firefox? If it is, you will need to turn it off in order for Page Saver to work correctly. To disable multiprocess mode, open the about:config page and set both of the following preferences to 'false':
    browser.tabs.remote.autostart
    browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2
    Restart Firefox after changing these preferences.

    We are working on a new multiprocess compatible Page Saver (based on the new WebExtensions API) but it is not yet available from addons.mozilla.org.
  • Used to be simply the best screenshot extension -- clean, reliable, etc. So much so, staff here bought a dozen+ copies, back when it was still "buy" rather than "free, but contribute". And recommended it to everyone who asked ...

    Since then, and the arrival of E10S in FF, it's non-functional. Repeated communications with the developer just get "looking into it" or "working on it" . A few MONTHS later, still nothing.

    Repeated empty promises over time == abandonware.

    Shame.
    We hear your frustration. Migrating Page Saver to the e10s architecture turned out to be more time-consuming than we anticipated, and unfortunately other work has gotten in the way of us completing that project. And in truth it may make sense to migrate to the new WebExtension API at the same time (but doing so will require us to remove some important Page Saver features such as command line support, so that is not an easy decision for us).

    I will add that for most people lack of e10s support is not currently a big problem because e10s is not enabled by default in Firefox when incompatible add-ons are present. But enabling e10s enhances security and stability in important ways, so I understand why you want to turn it on.

  • Gook work!
  • 所选区域截图无法下拉滚动页面截取,希望支持下拉滚动页面截图,谢谢!
  • It works fine with Firefox 45.0.2 (x86) and Cyberfox 45.0.3 (x86) on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

    Thanks Kathleen and Mark for this excellent extension.
  • I really love this addon from the option to play a sound, to the filename options, all the way to the keyboard shortcuts. It also tends to correctly save most content whereas some others cannot. It is well made.

    I did have an issue after beta testing Firefox 46 with e10s on. Upon doing that it stopped working. Even when downgrading back to Firefox 45.0.1 with e10s off it still had problems where the dialog box would never popup for either the options or to save anything. What worked to fix it was removing the addon and then re-installing it. For those having issues you may want to give removing and then reinstalling the addon a shot as it just might work for you too.

    One feature suggestion: Add the option to capture a screenshot from all tabs to the right. This is extremely helpful for power users who want to save many tabs and would be a big time saver! Add this feature and not only will I throw in a few bucks but I pledge to also personally spread the word about the extension and the killer feature to at least 20 other sites! :)
  • No longer working with FF 45.0.1

    Removed and re-installed, still not capturing images. Menus continue to operate, but no pics means I'm stuck with Nimbus or something else, PLEASE FIX !
    I am sorry that Page Saver is not working. But it does work for me on Mac OS in Firefox 45.0.1. Please tell us more about your Firefox setup: OS/platform, which other add-ons are installed, and so on. You can contact us directly by emailing support@pearlcrescent.com
  • In Image Capture Options set 200% for Size of saved image...and you will have it in retina!
  • Even if the picture size is big, the setting which can be preserved wants.
  • I am using this tool for a long Time, but now it captures only displayed area of a web page even when is setuped to capture whole page :-(
    I am sorry about this problem. Unfortunately, we cannot reproduce it. Please contact us via support@pearlcrescent.com and send us the URL of a page that is not captured correctly, the version of Firefox you are using, and the platform you are running on (e.g., Windows 7 64-bit). Thanks!
  • Five other addons that I tried silently failed to save a screenshot of a problematic webpage while this one partially succeeded telling me that the page was too large to get a complete whole-page-screenshot.... at least it didn't silently fail and it saved a partial screenshot.
