I came across a solution that seems to do exactly what I was looking
for. I've only used it a little bit so far, but I'm extremely happy with

    Screengrab! (0.93)

It's a Firefox extension, and there are screenshots at the above URL.
Here are the two key descriptive paragraphs from that page:

    Screengrab! is an extension for Firefox that makes it easy to save a
    web-page as an image. With it, you can save anything that you can
    see in a browser window - from a small selection, to a complete page.

    Basically Screengrab! lets you take what you want from a web-page:
    the entire scrollable document, just the visible bit, or a draggable
    selection. Screengrab will even save just the contents of an individ-
    ual frame.

I plan to use it to clip web pages of interest that don't page-break
well with my usual "File / Print... / PostScript/default / [v] Print to
File" method.
