    How can I take a screenshot of the popup that displays the sites security information when you click on the security information button. For me when I try to take a screenshot, the box closes then the screenshot is taken. I am running Ubuntu 14.04. How have other people taken screenshots without it closing?

    Hello,

    Thanks for submitting a revision! I use Snapz Pro X to take screenshots. It doesn't close the window when I use the keyboard shortcut to take a picture.

    You can get a free trial if you want to check it out. Otherwise, I can take a screenshot for you - just send me a link to the site that you want to take a picture of.

    Let me know what you prefer. I'll wait to hear back before I approve your revision.

    Sure, I was trying to take a picture of https://www.dailymotion.com/us which displays the gray warning triangle. If you can add it into my revision that'd be great. Sorry about the late response. Thanks!

    Hi, cammy_the_block!


    Lightshot (imgur.com) is a very good screenshot tool. It lets you crop, and more! All you need to do is press the Keys [FN] and [PRTSC], and the box won't close :) If you need anything else you can send me a message :)
