Your wrong.
Firefox works with scrolling captures.

There is a setting you can change in Firefox.

Thanks for pointing that out and setting me straight.

I did not see or look for that article when preparing for this video, my mistake.

Admittedly in a perfect world a user would not need to look for such an article.

I personally don't use FireFox on a regular basis and know from past experience that Snagit's ability to perform an Automatic Scrolling Capture can easily be broken by things like browser updates.

After following the steps in that article I can confirm that Auto Scrolling in FireFox does work.

Thanks again for all of your help on this!

Keep Focusing!

Perhaps it's just me, but it seems to me that Sofware Focus did actually make the effort to say "does not appear to work" and not simply "doesn't work".

That seems to imply (at least to me) that he is aware that there could be differences.

Be sure the focus is on the page itself, not any content divs or other components. To be sure, before you try to snag the page, click on the outermost margin to be sure. For example, on this page, I originally had clicked the stop button on the video, so the focus was on the player, not the page; of course, it only captured the visible part of the page and did not scroll. Clicking on the page body and trying again, it worked as advertised.
