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." addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/screengrab –  Parto Feb 17 '14 at 19:06

ScreenGrab died and was then reborn as ScreenGrab (fix version) –  Parto Feb 18 '14 at 8:08

But I need all in one solution: desktop and web page screenshot tool –  takeshin Feb 9 '11 at 9:50
Why do you need an all in one? Why not best tool for different jobs? –  djeikyb Feb 9 '11 at 13:05
Works Great. Thank you –  DextrousDave Jan 11 '13 at 12:13

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 https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/alelhddbbhepgpmgidjdcjakblofbmce#

Explain and Send Screenshots https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mdddabjhelpilpnpgondfmehhcplpiin#

Webpage Screenshot https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ckibcdccnfeookdmbahgiakhnjcddpki#

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. http://geppettvs.x10.mx

You can do what other fellas have said or you can use this site: http://browsershots.org/. You'll be able to see how page looks in any browser you want.

As long as I know, there're several websites provide free service for capturing full webpage. You could just find them as below:

capturefullpage.com - this website has a nice collection of webpage screenshots done by users, so you know it's workable for you. It only requires you to enter the URL of a page and then click "Take Screenshot".

Full Webpage Capture - another site works similar to the first one, it also works as capturing the whole webpage via URL. Upon the creation of a webshot image, you can choose to save it as local file or upload it to the web space provided by the site.
