How do I print an entire page in Firefox?

For my personal records (e.g. receipts), I like to print a web page in Firefox using CUPS print-to-pdf. This works great when the page layout is narrow. However, if the page is too wide, the output is cut-off on the right. I have tried all the possible options for shrink to fit, scale: 100%, and page size/orientation, but depending on the page's HTML/CSS, the right is still cut-off.

Ideally, I would like to use a tool which can capture the entire page as-is (at the window's width; not formatted for paper), and output it in *.pdf format. Does something like this exist?

Preferred OS: Linux, but I can also use Windows 7.


Abduction! seems to work well,

  • +0 – This seems to be the simplest solution right now to capture the whole window accurately. It's too bad that no tools exist to output *.pdf in the same manner. — Nov 07, 2011 at 18:30
