Capture an entire webpage image with Abduction! plug in for Firefox

How many times have you wanted to show someone the whole webpage- but can’t screen grab it? Problem solved with the Abduction plug in for FireFox.

Capture an entire web page or part of a web page and save it as an image.

For the sake of making this extension findable: This extension takes screenshots of websites.

Useful for showing people bugs in a website, creating snapshots of design progress, or perhaps even creating a gallery of websites.

Right click on any web page, frame or iframe, click “Save Page As Image…” and then drag a box around the piece you want to save.

Works with:

* Firefox: 3.0a1 – 3.0.*


Abduction! :: Firefox Add-ons to add it to your Firefox install or go to Tools>add-ons and do a search for “Abduction!”

Just one more reason not to use Microsoft’s horrible browser, Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Firefox 3 & WordPress spell check changeup.

I’m used to having spell as you type provided by Firefox. It’s had it since Firefox 2.0- and because of that, I’ve never used the Spell Check built into WordPress.

Well, I’ve noticed that while Firefox’s spell check works fine in Gmail and on other websites, it’s not working in WordPress 2.5.1. I’m going to check it out on a few other machines, but on my MacBook running 10.5.3, I have to manually check spelling with the WordPress spell check when I’m posting.

This will take some getting used to.

If you are also having the same problem with Firefox 3 not spellchecking in WordPress- please leave a comment with your version of WordPress and your operating system. It will help me gather info for a bug report.
