If I use "Capture Scrolling Window" option in "fast stone capture" software to capture a full screen in FF 10 beta - full screen is captured but with the toolbar of the internet page appearing in the screenshot wrongly.
This was working correctly with FF 3.6.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any internet page that shows a 'Pop up'.
2. Execute the fast stone capture 5.3 (free edition) and choose the 'Capture Scrolling window' and choose the pop up screen from step 1.
3. You will get a screenshot - but the screenshot is not proper.
Actual Results:  
Screenshot shows one or more number of toolbar and the output is not proper. Issue is clearly visible.

I have the same problem. I believe it is related to the way the window object is being drawn in FF4. When you try FastStone's option "Capture Window/Object" (not the scrolling feature), it normally highlights the window you are currently hovering over with a red border. Now in FF4, the highlighted area is the full window, including tabs and toolbars and everything, not just the 'content area' of the browser (for the lack of a better word).

Also, to add to @Kasee's comment above: step 1 is not necessary to reproduce; FastStone's scrolling feature works with any website, not just popups.

Same problem with similar softwares WinSnap, PicPick, etc. Have not found a software that allows you to take just page screenhot in Firefox 4+. Addons from AMO can do it, but not support about:addons.

Just to complementing information here. New version 7 of HyperSnap is supporting pages screenshot on Firefox if user install the xpi ad-don (HyperSnap Helper) bundled with the software.

I confirm this problem with Faststone Capture 5.3 and Firefox 11.0 under Windows 7 SP1 32 bits. Faststone capture correctly works with Firefox 3.6.

And I confirm this problem with PickPick 3.2.0
A scrolling window may be captured with Fireshot extension.
