Save As PDF saves a MS-DOS application????

Pages: 1
Posted:  19 Apr 2017 07:03
Version: 0.98.91
MS Windows 10
Chrome Version 57.0.2987.133

I'm trying to capture a full page, and I selected the Save as PDF option and it ends up saving an MS-DOS application.

Yeah, I'm not opening that and getting God knows what virus on my PC.

Please either fix this functionality or remove the nefarious code from the extension.

FIreShot is clean - please check your PC.

No, sorry to tell you the bad news, JK, but Fireshot really has got a problem ! I have the same problem than kecker but while I do screencaps as images ... It records them sometimes as PNJ, but often as MS-Dos files ! And my PC is very clean, I regularly check its security... So, it eventually come from Fireshot...

Can you please share with me a sample of such file? I suspect, for some reason the extension is omitted, but there is nothing malicious inside of these files.

Okay, thank you. I'll send you it by PM.

Edit : Sorry, it seems there is no PM in that discussion board...

How do you want me to send you the sample ?

I've got your email. Can you share the file via Google Drive or a similar service?

Yeah my PC was never infected, it was your application that was the problem.  But since you couldn't be bothered to take the issue seriously and tried to blame me I used something else instead.

Okay, I try this right now.

It is impossible to send an MS-Dos file ! Gmail blocks the upload for security reasons, so I sent you 2 screencaps of the file. You should have received them now.

I read your answer to my comment on the Firefox add-ons page about Fireshot. I found it very offensive and disrespectful... Exactly like is your behaviour from the start of the topic, against kecker and I... Never mind, you'll lose all users acting that way, because that will be known.

I don't trust you at all. You ask me to do something dangerous for my PC, you treat us badly, telling your add-on has no problem, refusing to check it, so go to hell ! I won't use anymore your fucking add-on. I hate people behaving like you do ! Shame on you !

No "Sorry for the problem you meet" no "I will check my add-on", no "I will ask to the users", just "My program is clean, check your PC"... In your answer in the Firefox comments, you are publicly suggest that I wrote those things to hzarm your add-on but I actually don't want any help ! In other words, you call me a liar... What a patronizing behaviour you have, that's a shame.

To answer to  I already tried to change the MS-Dos extension into PNG... That does not work.

It does not matter, I definitely give up Fireshot... I found a good screencap add-on (and it know the difference between PNG and MS-Dos)

Thank you, Nimbus !

I cannot keep on wanting to use Fireshot now I saw how you behave with us...

Good luck with it.

Furax, thank you for sharing your opinion and trying to assist us. I'm pretty sure this is some kind of a a bug in browser's API, so I'll be waiting for the person, who really wants to discover the cause of this problem.

P.S. If somebody has a similar problem and wants to help us in discovering the cause - please feel free posting at this thread.

Your help is much appreciated.

This is not one bug in one browser. I met the problem on Firefox, on Chrome and on Opera... So that means there are 3 bugs in 3 API's browsers.

How do I know for sure? You're refusing to share a sample with me using one of the free file hosting services.

LOL, you don't really want to find the solution to the problem.  You want to just blame anyone but your software.  Your first reaction is to blame the user.  When that doesn't work you blame their browser....without bothering to do even the most basic research.

FireShot Version 0.98.97.2
MS Windows 10 Pro, English
Google Chrome is up to date, Version 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I just found out tonight that alot of my screenshots (pics and pdf) starting on 4-26-20 have saved as MS-DOS using FireShot. 
I'm not techy so bear with me and I will do what I can.
I just took 2 screenshots of a google search as a test, 1 saved as a pic and other saved as a pdf and both saved as a ms-dos.
IDK how or why!
All I know is that I have saved some screen shots as pics since it started 4/26/20 and they saved as a jpeg but some didn't.  16 were after either paying a bill or making a purchase and I took a screenshot of each conformation page and saved in the corresponding folder as I have done for a few years now with no issues until now.
