Fireshot could not create file for writing

Pages: 1
Posted:  16 Mar 2021 23:54
Edge browser (Version 89.0.774.54 (Official build) beta (64-bit))
Fireshot extension v.0.98.98
Windows 10 Pro 21H1
OS build 19043.867
Experience Feature Pack 120.2212.3030.0

When I use Edge & click on the Fireshot extension & select any 1 of the capture options & "save as PDF", the PDF is not created & I get a pop-up error message that says "Fireshot could not create file for writing:" followed by a file path that I used for a while to save my captures, but I changed the name of the folder in my OneDrive that it is referring to, so the folder it wants to save to no longer exists, but when I changed the name of the folder to write to, I also went into the options in Fireshot & selected a different folder in my OneDrive to save captures to. However, no matter what site I am on in the Edge browser, right after I select to save as PDF, I get the pop-up error message where it is telling me it can't save to that location, which it should not b/c that folder has since been renamed & I changed the save location in the options screen. In the past, if I changed the name of a folder w/o changing the name in the options, Fireshot would create a folder in the specified location & start saving to that folder. I do NOT have the problem when I work in Chrome, it saves to the updated folder that I have input in the options screen. This has been going on for about a month, but it could be longer. I am trying to figure out which browser best meets my needs, so I keep going back & forth. I have removed the extension from Edge & installed it again from the Microsoft store & it didn't help. I removed it & installed it from the Chrome webstore & it didn't help. It's as if there is another place where I should change the output folder, but I can't find any other place to change it. I even tried editing a capture, thinking that maybe if a file location was forced, it would update the problematic reference, but it didn't help. I use Fireshot a lot over the years, but this is really frustrating. I would appreciate any help you can provide.

The browser console contents are as follows (if I followed your instructions above correctly, but I don't know that this is what you are asking for):
