Capture & Print by Diego Casorran

I have used this add-on for quite a while. It stopped working for me in January 2017. I have the latest version of Firefox and do not run many add-ons and have not made any changes to my system other than upgrading to the latest Firefox.
I can click on the tool icon in my toolbar and it changes my screen to yellow....then I cannot select anything. It freezes on that screen and will not let me do the action needed...nor does it let me do anything else on that screen. I have to completely close that tab to escape it. Then when I try to click on the icon again....nothing....but love this tool when it works.

On WIN 10 home edition and always kept up to date.

Is anyone experiencing similar problems and can anyone help.

The same thing happens on my computer with Firefox Developer Edition but not with Firefox. It used to work fine. Reloading the web page by pressing F5 should get rid of the yellow screen but it won't solve the problem of Capture & Print not working.

Capture & Print used to work with Firefox Developer Edition but now when you click on the Capture & Print add-on toolbar icon, it just highlights the entire page in yellow and you can't select anything, so you have to refresh the page but it works fine in Firefox. I've already tried uninstalling and reinstalling it. Thanks.

c&p* has not been updated since "February 25, 2015" you should contact author** to update its code, AMO list it as compatible up to (only) v53. or search and use another one.

Isn't this forum the support site for Capture & Print? Do you know how to contact the author? There doesn't seem to be any contact information on https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/user/diegocr/, https://github.com/diegocr, or any other website. Does AMO mean addons.mozilla.org? Where does AMO list it as compatible only up to v53? Do you know of another good add-on like Capture & Print for selecting what to print? Thanks.

The only way I have found to contact the author is by leaving a review which I think he is notified of and hence may read.

See my post of 27 Feb 2017 above regarding Gadwin PrintScreen.
