I have been testing various Firefox extension for screenshot grabbing, but none of them suited my needs.

Then I have found Shutter (0.86.3), and it is really nice. I use exporting to imageshack and FTP a lot.

The only thing I miss is grabbing the whole web page area (not just the part currently visible on the screen). Is there any Shutter extension for this or similar app with such a feature?

Screengrab is awesome. You can can take screenshot with different options:

Edit: Since screengrab is not maintained anymore, Awesome Screenshot is a good option:

Actually Screengrab is EOL. "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." – Parto Feb 17 '14 at 19:06
@AvatarParto I updated the answer. – Pedram Feb 18 '14 at 7:00
ScreenGrab died and was then reborn as ScreenGrab (fix version) – Parto Feb 18 '14 at 8:08

On recent versions of Firefox, there is no need for any plugins. This capability is built into the browser.

  1. In Firefox, use Shift+F2 to open the in-browser CLI. This is a command-line interface at the bottom of the browser window which lets you do all kinds of awesome stuff. (I find the restart option particularly useful.)
  2. Type screenshot --fullpage (this will autocomplete, so s Tab --f Tab will work; the autocomplete is shown by grey text ahead of the cursor).

That will save the screenshot as a PNG file to your downloads folder. By default, the filename includes the date and time. You can use a different filename if you wish, simply by passing it in on the CLI: screenshot --fullpage my_name.png.

Is there an argument to control resolution? – fredsbend Jul 27 '15 at 19:53
If you type screenshot -- you can then use the up and down arrow keys to scroll through the available options. I see nothing there about screen resolution, I'm afraid. – TRiG Jul 27 '15 at 20:08

Why do you need an all in one? Why not best tool for different jobs? – djeikyb Feb 9 '11 at 13:05

I use nanoshot which has its own web-capturing setting.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nanoshot/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nanoshot

Looks promising, but after: Take screnshoot of a web page it shows the image I need (long page), but there is no option to save it. There's only [Take!] button, which saves just the visible portion. – takeshin Feb 9 '11 at 10:11

If you wish to use google-chrome (or chromium-browser) you can have several so-called: "extensions" which will allow you to take full screenshots of almost any website.

There are restrictions on some sites, in example: you can't take a shot of your hotmail inbox or some e-shops.

I use:

Awesome Screenshot: Capture & Annotate

Explain and Send Screenshots

Webpage Screenshot

These tools are useful for taking full or partial page screenshots, make annotations, simple edit of the captured image and other features.

A screenshot of my site is placed here in order to illustrate.
