USE ADD ON COMPATIBILITY REPORTER (link below) TO ALLOW YOU TO USE SCREENGRAB, WORKS ON FF 9.0.1 !!!
Love this tool. Most convenient.
Works fine in firefox 8. This addon is very clean and does not have a toolbar, unlike Screenshot Pimp, that addon install a digusting toolbar with Bing and other ugly crap, total space waster. Google is far faster and better.
Works perfectly on 9.0!
Thank you very much Pituso !!!! It works fine for me in FF 8.0.1
I just love this extention !
It works perfectly for me with no bugs after editing the intall.rdf contained in the *.xpi extension file. First I changed the *.xpi to *.rar and then open the install.rdf file, and I changed the maxmem vervion of FF to 10.0 and it works also with FF 9.0 beta 6 (tested today by me). Images are saved in both .jpg and .png, full or partial image and everything's fine.
The recent version of "Screengrab" changes FireFOX default search from google to esnips, sets the homepage to esnips which sucks. was it so necessary to force users to use some search engine that the users don't wanna? this is so sad, it used to be such a good and useful add-on. now I'll have to look 4 alternatives....... :|
To be clear: Screengrab does not, and never has done anything like that. That would be such a lame thing to do.
> Thanks to the video tutorial below this is working in Firefox 8, Linux. Basic info: download the XPI file (right-click install button), extract, open install.rdf in a text editor and change em:maxVersion to 8.0.*
Or disable Add-on compatibility checking and in the extensions manager click Screegrab's Compatibility button and select 'This add-on still works'.
Save Complete and Save Visible portion both work fine for me in FF 8.
really good apps this
Easy hack using 7-zip too, again changing the version to 8.0 in the rdf file. Glad to have this working again, it's a must-have add-on for me.
Thanks to the video tutorial below this is working in Firefox 8, Linux. Basic info: download the XPI file (right-click install button), extract, open install.rdf in a text editor and change em:maxVersion to 8.0.*. Update compressed copy in the XPI file, and install modified version by dragging XPI file onto Firefox window.
Hi guys. I've just created a tutorial on Youtube, showing you how to get Screengrab working for versions 7 and upwards. As long as you follow what I do in the video, it'll work a charm.
Hope that helps.
OK, Then how do I get it installed and enabled?
Screengrab add-on works for me on FF 8.0
This is the perfect addition.
My pleasure !
If only Andy would answer ^^
I joined just so I could thank JBGO for a easy, workable solution in the form of an .xpi download. Thanks man, you're legend.
Please tell me this handy thing is not EOL?!! By far the most comprehensive and IMHO best screengrab tool for FF there ist.
Now, I've tried Selvans hint (changed <em:maxVersion> to 8.0) in the XPI file but it is still not working :-(
Can anyone please post a little tutorial on how to get this thing working in FF 8 (and above) please!
In FF 8.0 only 'Visible portion' and 'Selection' works properly.
'Complete Page/Frame' is faulty and 'Window' doesn't work at all.
Great add-on. Any chance you will donate your source code to the open source community? Especially the .class-files, I think the rest can be extracted with any common archive program.
Still seems to work with FF8.0 as best I can tell (Windows XP Home/SP3). Either follow the instructions to change the maxversion in the .xpi file or use the Add-On Compatibility Reporter Extension to bypass the check and keep it enabled. Since it's so useful I'll still give 5 stars.
As before, you have to open the .xpi archive in 7zip (or what have you) drag and drop the install.rdf file you your desk top, and edit it with a text editor so that the <em:maxVersion>*.*.*</em:maxVersion> line reads something like this, <em:maxVersion>8.9.*</em:maxVersion>
Then save and close the text editor, and drag the edited install.rfd file to the still open 7zip archive. Confirm that you want to replace the original. Close the 7zip archive, and drag the updated .xpi file onto your browser. It will install automatically.
Click "Add to Firefox", right mouse click -> "Save Link As..." in "Install Anyway" when it appears.
Extract to a empty folder, edit "install.rfd" in notepad and change the max version to " * " only, making it look like "<em:maxVersion>*</em:maxVersion>".
Compress to file in ZIP format, change the .zip extension to .xpi and drag the file into FF or open it with FF.
This way the extension won't be disabled every time you update your FF version, but you have to keep an eye out to see if it continues to work from version to version.
Does anyone know where to get the .xpi file for this addon? I need to update the install.rfd file so that it can work with FF8.
great utility, but i can understand why the author is frustrated with firefox changing so much. it seems that FF has not really changed for the better in quite some time.
screengrab...it will be missed!
