FireShot doesn't capture text as displayed in the Firefox browser.  The captured PNG has screwy text.  Perhaps this is because of ClearType?  I am running on Win7 64bit.

Here is a snippet of a capture in what it looks like in both browsers and the difference of the pixels.  It should be identical in both please.

This is the latest version of Fireshot (there is no About FireShot in the menu to see the version #).
It looks like I'll have to use it in Chrome if I want the capture to be accurate...

Yes, this is due to Firefox 2d rendering acceleration. There's a short how-to of switching this off, please google it and apply. Everything should be fine.

By the way, acceleration feature on FF actually slows it down for general usage. Might as well a good idea to turn it off.
