    I might be misunderstanding, but I thought SafeOnline was supposed to prevent screenshots on secure HTTPS sites when set at maximum? It's
    just that I'm being permitted to take screenshots via "Screengrab" FF Add-on.
    But maybe I've got it wrong??

    I suspect the addon would be allowed to function if it is running within the browser. If you hit the Print Screen key on your keyboard, do you receive a warning?

    Thanks for the information! :)

    Oh I see what you're saying now...i.e. that a user may take a ss themself, if
    from within their own browser. I see now. I mistakenly thought that no ss at
    all could be taken, by anyone. Haven't tried Print Screen key yet. Thank you
    for the clarification Joe, cheers :)

    Yes, the printscreen gets blocked. I can confirm that.

    Yeah, seems to block all, but not "Screengrab". Unless an intruder can get into
    browser, which is impossible with SafeOnline afaik. :)

    Didn't think that needed explaining.
