Fireshot does not capture the entire web page

I just installed the fireshot 6.5 chrome extension and tested it using a twitter page link.
It does not capture the entire web page. It captures maybe 15% only.

I don't mind paying for the pro version BUT i need the software to capture the ENTIRE web page.
I do not mind if it has to break the web page into separate file because of size.

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, there's something we can improve in one of the next versions of FireShot - how to handle endless pages. The problem in the "endless page" is while you're scrolling the page, new content is being preloaded. This is the cause - the content is not loaded yet, so you get a blank area.

My suggestion will be to scroll the Twitter page down up to the content you want to capture, wait till it's loaded, then start FireShot.

I have the same/similar issue.
I have installed the firefox extension just today ( version 0.98.98 ).

I try to capture an entire webpage (a locally hosted html page) I have which is very long (~300,000px height).
Fireshot appears to function, slowly scrolling the page bit by bit... but then at the end it shows the results page with a broken image.

So I installed the "advanced" (pro) features plugin and tried again... now at the end it shows a "Please Wait" dialog saying "Processing" but the progress bar never moves (I've left it for a long time now and nothing happens).

I was hoping this tool would work as I haven't found one yet that does. I'm struggling to figure out how to get page captures for an extremely long webpage. Similar to djcal I would be fine if the images were broken up instead of a single huge file.

Note that in my case the page is static and there is no dynamic loading / infinite-scrolling going on.

devlop, you might try saving it directly to PDF - and please be patient with the "Processing" message.

I tried again and waited over 12 hours for "Processing" to complete without any progress indicated at all. Print to PDF also doesn't work.

Here is my test page:

devlop, does the fireshot-chrome-plugin process consume CPU when it's looking like hung up?
What's your PC config?

P.S. Tested on my PC, it took 2 mins to capture the sample URL you provided, and a couple of minutes for creating the PDF: https://getfireshot.com/downloads/long_url.pdf

Sorry for my late reply.
I ended up having an extension that I believe was screwing things up in Chrome, removing that extension fixed things.
As for Firefox, I have no extensions so I'm not sure what was happening.. but I just tried again now and it seems to work ... anyway, all good now I guess. Thanks.
