I have been using the Screengrab extension in Firefox all the time.It adds a screenshot taking feature to the Firefox browser so that you can save a web page as an image to your local system.
This is different from saving the web page as an HTML file as you end up with a single image file displaying the website's contents instead of multiple files (he HTML file includes extra image files and others). The advantage of saving the page as an HTML file is that you can copy text for example or interact with it in other ways, while you cannot do the same if you take a screenshot.
Because of this, both options have their distinct advantages.
The problem with Screengrabber was that it is not compatible with newer versions of the Firefox browser. A new version that is compatible has been uploaded to the Mozilla Add-ons repository so that you can use it once again in all recent versions of the web browser.
You have two options to use the extension after installation:
Both menus display the same set of options to you. You can create a screenshot of the visible part of the screen, of the complete page, or of a selection. The screenshot can be saved directly to the local system or copied to the clipboard of the operating system instead.
