On windows, I can use Fireshot with FireFox to take screenshots, ufortuately, its works only on Windows... how can I do the same on Ubuntu?

The main features I will need are:

  • Take full scrolling web page screenshot
  • Work with Flash/Silverlight content - some screen capture will display these as black boxes or something
  • If possible, have an API so I can develop scripts to make use of it

Try Abduction.

It allows you to take whole pages/selections, though I'm not sure about scripting (this should be possible though.


What you could also do is use a Website Screenshot API from the Internet. ScreenshotAPI.net is such an example!
