In Firefox, on a normal webpage, you can right click and go Take Screenshot. This allows you to take a scrolling screenshot as well, which not possible using standard screenshot software like Greenshot or Snipping Tool. Thumbs up!

I just found that you can't do a scrolling screenshot for a PDF - you can only screenshot the visible parts.

Probably a very niche use case but would've come in handy as I had to OCR some images in a PDF file today, and Firefox OCR extensions were unable (or unwilling?) to work in PDF view, so I screenshotted the PDF file then opened the .JPG in Firefox again. OCR tools were then able to do their thing.

Thanks for pointing this out. It seems a reasonable expectation and it would be good to get it fixed. We are tracking this bug at

Did you notice the "Save full page" and "Save visible" option selections on the top right of the window once you select "Take Screenshot"?   The Save full page" option automatically captures to the end of the page so you don't need to go through the extra step of scrolling down to the end of the page to capture all of the content.
