For some reason when I try to download a screenshot of [this tweet] it fails every time; I tested it and it's just that tweet specifically. This has never happened before and I assume it's just a bug since copy-pasting still works. Any help with this?

You will need to show the issue, post screenshot or screen recording. I don't like Firefox screenshot tool, but was able to do it. see screenshot

Do you have the same issue with Firefox in Safe Mode? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/diagnose-firefox-issues-using-troubleshoot-mode#w_how-to-start-firefox-in-4troubleshoot-modesf5safe-modesf

What security software are you running?

You likely will have to shorten the name as I get a length of 235 characters as the page title is quite long as you can see in "Tools -> Page Info -> General".

Screenshot 2023-xx-xx at xx-xx-xx Rob Henderson on X Step 1 It's not really happening Step 2 Yeah it's happening but it's not a big deal Step 3 It's a good thing actually Step 4 People freaking out about it are the real problem _ X.png

You may have to sanitize the page title as there are colons and other characters in the page title that aren't valid for Windows (Linux is easier in such cases).

Possible JavaScript bookmarklet to shorten the name and fix the page title otherwise. You can create a new bookmark on the Bookmarks Toolbar and paste the JavaScript code in its URL field where you would normally enter the address of the website.

javascript:/*sanitize pagetitle*/(function(){var ot=document.title,st=ot.replace(/[\\\/\:\|\?\*<>"]/g,r=>""+{"\\":"_","/":"_",":":"_","|":"_","?":" ","*":" ","<":"[",">":"]","\"":"'"}[r]).trim();st=window.prompt('Original ('+ot.length+'):\n'+ot+'\nSanitized ('+st.length+'):\n'+st+'\n\nEdit Title and click OK to Confirm',st);if(st)document.title=st})()

Rob Henderson on X: "Step 1: It's not really happening Step 2: Yeah, it's happening, but it's not a big deal Step 3: It's a good thing, actually Step 4: People freaking out about it are the real problem" / X

Possibly shorten to: Rob Henderson on X

EDIT: modifying the page title doesn't seem to work for saving a screenshot (works with "Save Page As"), so apparently saving a screenshot get its title from elsewhere.

So you think it's just the name being too long? Because that would line up with other people's responses.

How far do you get?

Does the Screenshot window open ? Can you select the tweet ? What happens if you click the Download button, do you get the Save dialog ?

You can also try Copy and paste the file in an image editor application and save thew file there. If might work if you save the file to a folder in root that doesn't have a long path name (less than 20).

It works just fine up until I click Download, then it just says the download failed.

Copy-pasting does work, will probably try that instead if there's no way to fix this.

So, you do not get the choice to modify file name and folder (path) of where to save the screenshot?

Does it help if you select the 'Always ask..' choice for Download in Settings ?
