Screengrab 0.96.3.1-signed.1-signed Requires Restart
by Andy M
Screengrab! saves webpages as images... but not for new versions of Firefox.
FF changes too fast and I don't have the time to maintain it anymore. Bugs have developed that I am not in a position to investigate.
Therefore, Screengrab is EOL.
About this Add-on
It will capture what you can see in the window, the entire page, just a selection, a particular frame... basically it saves webpages as images - either to a file, or to the clipboard.
It can capture any Java or Flash embedded in a page, but to do this it requires Java to be installed in the browser.
Sadly, there's a bug in 0.96.2 with Firefox 3.6 (due to a deprecated API call - oops!) that causes a crash on any page containing Flash or Applets if you have Java enabled (sort of the reverse of the last major issue). 0.96.3 is finished and waiting for Mozilla approval to be released. That usually takes a few weeks. My sincerest apologies.
The following little keywords are at the request of those who can't remember the name ScreenGrab! and want searches to work. It takes screen shots, screenshots - that is, shots, of web pages.
If you are having any technical problems, please discuss them on the support forum rather than posting them here. I can't diagnose issues if I can't talk to you about them!
Issues with Screengrab and Firefox 3.6
Screengrab 0.96.2 has an issue with Firefox 3.6, where it calls the deprecated getBoxObjectFor function when locating Flash or Java objects for capture. This makes it silently fail. This is fixed in 0.96.3 (currently waiting for approval from addons.mozilla.org).
Issues with Screengrab and Firefox 3.5
Screengrab 0.96.1 has an issue with Firefox 3.5 where some shots will come out with a black background. 0.96.2 fixes the issue.
Issues with Flash or Applets (Java 6u10/6u11 & Screengrab! 0.96)
Due to an issue with the new Java Plugin in 6u10 and 6u11, Screengrab 0.96 will fail silently while attempting to capture any page with Flash or Applets in it.
To fix this, please upgrade Java to 6u12 or above.
Screengrab! 0.96.1 addresses this issue by acting as though Java is disabled if it finds either of these two versions.
Fixed background colour still inconsistent (now always set to white).
Fixed copy window still showing when Java is not enabled (no one seemed to notice this one...)
