HyperSnap Add-on for Firefox 4 and newer
With the release of Firefox 4 it is no longer possible for HyperSnap (or any external program) to distinguish where the toolbars area at the top of Firefox window end and the actual web page you want to capture begins. To solve this problem, we introduced a small and unobtrusive Firefox Add-on, which wakes up if HyperSnap is asking about the exact page location and tells it what and where to capture.
We added a few extra features to the add-on to make the product even more useful. With the add-on installed, you may:
What if you don't install the add-on?
Well, nothing really. The only problem will be that HyperSnap will not be able to capture pages with auto-scrolling correctly from Firefox, and even if you try to capture the visible part only of a page, you will get it together with all Firefox toolbars on top and any bars on the bottom of its window. Here are two page caputures of our current home page in Firefox 4.0, using Ctrl+Shift+W HyperSnap hot key combination:
Note that without the add-on (left) Firefox toolbars, menu bar, address bar, bookmarks etc. are selected for the capture, while with the add-on (right) only the actual page is captured.
How to install HyperSnap add-on
You must have HyperSnap 7 or 8 running. If you are using the ribbon interface, click the "Setup" tab of the ribbon and the small Firefox icon or text "FF Add-on". When using classic menu interface, click "Options" menu, then select "Install Firefox Add-on". HyperSnap will also prompt you automatically when the toolbar is not installed and you try to capture a page area of Firefox window. If you don't want to install the Add-on, you have an option to turn off these prompts.
