Full page screenshots in Firefox (without a plugin!)

Sometimes you just need to get a screen grab, but the content you really want spills off the screen. If you’re anything like me you probably don’t want to install yet another plugin just to get a full page screenshot, but fortunately this can all be done natively in Firefox.

If you’re in Firefox simply hit SHIFT+F2 to invoke the Developer Toolbar which will pop up at the bottom of the page:

Firefox Developer Toolbar

In the console type the following command to take a full page screenshot:

screenshot filename.png –fullpage

The console will auto-suggest commands as you type, in the example below you can see the filename is optional:

…and there you go, a full page screenshot of the Google homepage, just what you’ve always needed!
