Here are 5 free Firefox add-ons to capture and save the entire webpage to PC.

Using any of these plugins, you can grab the full webpage (and not the visible area only) in one or two clicks and save the webpage to PC as JPG or PNG image. Apart from this, most of these plugins provide features to capture the required part and the visible area.

Another reason to add these Firefox add-ons in this list is that each individual plugin has its special feature(s). For example, you can convert webpage to PDF, save webpage to Google Drive, annotate the webpage before saving to PC, share the screenshot to your social media accounts, and more.

Let’s start with the first full webpage screenshot capture Firefox plugin available in this list.

FireShot

FireShot lite version

FireShot (Lite version), also known as FireShot Webpage Screenshot, is a fantastic Firefox add-on which will catch your attention for sure. It lets you capture the full webpage, visible area, or a selected part and save it as JPG, BMP, PNG, PDF, or GIF image format. You can also save webpage as PDF file which is its special feature. You don’t need to use any other webpage to PDF converter tool. You can use its icon or hotkey (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Z) to capture the full webpage and save it to desired location on your PC.

Apart from this, it also provides option to upload the screenshot online anonymously or as registered user (by creating the account) to EasyCaptures.com. Moreover, you can also upload the screenshot to your Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, ImageShack, and Picasa accounts. So it’s a powerful webpage screenshot capture add-on which I can easily recommend to you.

Note: It also provides other features like edit the screenshot, annotate webpage, etc., but you have to upgrade to use those features. However, you can try those features for free if needed.

Easy Screenshot

Easy Screenshot

Easy Screenshot is one of the simplest add-on in this whole list. It comes with three main options: Capture Entire Screen, Capture a Portion, and Capture Visual Part. There are no extra tools and its name suits it completely. If you just need a very simple plugin which is specially built to capture the full webpage without scrolling, look no further than Easy Screenshot add-on.

You have to right-click on a webpage to access the Capture Entire Screen option provided by this add-on. After this, you can save the webpage as PNG image to desired location.

Nimbus Screen Capture

Nimbus Screen Capture

Nimbus Screen Capture is my personal favorite Firefox plugin in this whole list. You can capture whole webpage, visible area, selected area, and annotate it with various tools before saving to your PC.

What makes it better than other add-ons available in this list is that it provides more saving options. For example, you can save the screenshot to PC (PNG or JPEG), your Google Drive account, and to your Nimbus account. If you have created a free account to Nimbus, then you can save screenshots in the cloud and can also comment on your screenshots.

You can also check its Chrome extension.

Awesome Screenshot

Awesome Screenshot- capture full webpage and annotate

Awesome Screenshot is really an awesome plugin for Firefox to capture the visible part or the entire webpage. You can also annotate the captured webpage before saving it to your PC. You can use the rectangle, line, circle, text, blur, and free line tools to annotate the webpage and save it.

Your screenshot can be saved in JPEG or PNG format. You need to use its icon or right-click context menu option to capture the webpage. Or else, use the default hotkeys to capture the full webpage or the visible part.

Easy Screenshot(by MozillaOnline)

Easy Screenshot- capture and annotate webpage

Easy Screenshot has all those options which you can expect in a good screen capture Firefox add-on. It supports hotkeys to capture visible content, whole page, and page region. You can also use its icon to capture the webpage. Capture webpage can also be annotated with various tools like rectangle, line, free hand drawing, text, and blur tools.

Your annotated screenshot is saved in PNG format. Unfortunately, you can’t select any other image format as output, but still it is a fantastic add-on which you can try.

The Verdict:

If I talk about the feature of capturing the entire webpage, then there is no comparison between these plugins, as all are capable in doing so and you can use any one according to your choice. However, no doubt that FireShot is at number one position because it supports various output formats and extra features. Still, my favorite is Nimbus Screen Capture.
