Screenshots should work on almost all web pages. Certain pages that contain the HTML <frameset> are not fully supported and may not be shootable.

Additionally, some pages with special permissions to modify Firefox, like Test Pilot and addons.mozilla.org, are unsupported due to strict security rules designed to prevent page manipulation.

Lastly, certain browser pages like the Firefox home and OptionsPreferences pages are not supported. These pages are built using a different language than the rest of the Web.
