[Request] Enable taking screenshots for local webpages (file:///C:/Users/Administrator/Desktop/test.html)

Pages: 1

Hi Team,
    Some times we got the scenario:
    There's a web-page .mhtml file(or other similar with different file type, e.g: .html, .htm, etc) in local hard drive already, and we have to open it up in browser(for me, it's google chrome mainly), the address bar will be something like this: file:///C:/Users/Administrator/Desktop/test.html, and then capture the contents into screenshots, and i just tried it 2-5 times, within the 4 options as beneath:
    Capture entire page and...
    Capture visible part and...
    Capture selection / element and...
    Capture browser window and...
   
    There's only the last one(Capture browser window and...) can work well with this kind of local web-page, the other 3, when clicking, there's no reactions at all.
   
    So it's expected to have the same level functionality for the local files(i don't day it web-page now, above is just one example, bcz maybe there's some other types there), but just meaning the ones that come in the browser locally.
   
    Thanks for consideration.

Hi JK,
    1. i click the "Developer mode"->"Update extensions now" several times, but the extension still only with 0.98.90, not as in the webstore's 0.98.91. doesn't this extension support update via this way? and then i can only delete current one, and "Add to Chrome" again?
    2. where is the update/version change log?
   
    Thanks.

1 more point:
anyway, i delete the current one and re-added it from webstore, so now it's  0.98.91 version, and i tested it with my mentioned above scenario, it's not fixed at all.

wish it be updated.
thanks.

Yes, there's one weird thing for now: this update is selective and is delivered only for 20% of users - I'm delivering it carefully and check for possible errors.

The update log is available here: https://getfireshot.com/updated.php?full=1&h=0

It seems that I do not understand the way you're trying to use it correctly - we can get in touch via Skype or TeamViewer to let me see, what you're trying to do. Alternatively, you could record a short demo of the problem.

Thanks, Evgeny.
