Hi

I everytime get the error "Unable to create bitmap: out of recources. Try reducing imageextents or get more of free RAM".

This happens on 3 or 4 separate Computers but none of them have the same config (Xp, Vista, 2 or 4GB Ram, 256 and 384MB GForce 8800). These are all "Power Machines"

If a use "Entire Page -> Edit" all is ok, i can Save the page. Shoult this way not need more power???

If i use "Entitre Page -> Save or Copy to Clipboard" then i get the Error Requester (Save) or get a corrupted clipboard.

Can you check this?

Yes, I'll check this if you post some examples of problematic web-pages.

Thanks.

pick any long page, and a machine with less than 1gb ram, you'll get this:

---------------------------
Error
---------------------------
Unable to create bitmap: out of resources.
Try reducing image extents or get more of free RAM
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------



with all due respect, snagit's method of capturing long pages is more resource friendly.

stunning extension though, keep up the good work.

You can install Screenshot Studio and you'll see it captures as well as Snagit does.
The problem of FireShot is that it's a plugin for Firefox and it takes more resources to grab a screen through Firefox's engine.

Hi

I am experiencing the same problem. Any longer site cannot be captured : (. My comp has 1,5GB of RAM. FireShot says its out of RAM, but there is more than 600MB free RAM when I look at windows manager. Hope this can be fixed. Great plugin though. Keep up the good work.

greets : )

I have the same problem! Cannot save any capture I make  and the function display numbers also doesn't work anylonger... I select it but no numbers display at all!

Plug-in Fireshot 0.50
OS type: MS Windows XP professional, english, SP2
VErsion of firefox: 2.0.0.14

Start FX, select anywebsite, click on Fireshot button, edit screenshot, click on save. Won't save, have "Unable to create bitmap: out of recources. Try reducing imageextents or get more of free RAM"

don't have the problem though when simply selecting "takes screenshot visible area and SAVE".

Thanks for help
