Create images of full web pages in Firefox with Paparazzi Web Browsers
I use Paparazzi a lot to take screenshots of full web pages. I was copying the URL from the browser and pasting into Paparazzi then grabbing screenshot, but I discovered today that I could create a Javascript bookmarklet and assign it a keyword in Firefox to quickly grab the current web page. The magic works because Paparazzi injects the paparazzi: URL type into the system. As a result, anything you enter into a web browser like paparazzi:http://google.com will grab the listed URL.

To take advantage of this behavior, I created a Javascript bookmarklet in Firefox then assigned it the keyword pz. Now every time I want to grab a web page in Paparazzi, I just load that page and then enter pz in the URL address bar. When I press Return, the page open in Paparazzi. Here's the Javascript; copy and paste it into a new Firefox bookmark and assign it a keyword of your choice:
javascript:location.href='paparazzi:'+location.href
[robg adds: This works as described, and is quite handy for capturing full web pages as images, if you occasionally need such a thing. The first time you use it, Firefox will display a dialog asking if it's OK to send the request to Paparazzi; say yes and check the box so Firefox doesn't ask you again.]

You can also just use the free Pearl Crescent Page Saver Firefox extension, which can capture whole pages, or just the visible portion, or just a frame, all of it via keyboard shortcuts.

+1 on Pearl Crescent Page Saver if we're just talking about Firefox as the original post was

screengrab was my first choice - and I was hoping it would work - which it does for the most part. Unfortunately the screengrabs it takes seem to really do bad things to text - very jagged and poor quality.

Just to make this clear… and because the headline sounds a bit irritating. this bookmarklet just send the url to paparazzi, paparazzi still creates a screenshot using webkit NOT FIREFOX… so espacially if you want create screenshots using firefox (showing renderingbugs in firefox) you should try any of the plugins mentioned above.
