Try Firefox’s new screenshot tool

Web User - - Best New Browser Tools -

Last is­sue, when we were sum­maris­ing the best new fea­tures in Firefox 55, we lamented the fact that we hadn’t yet seen the promised Screen­shots tool, which is be­ing rolled out to users grad­u­ally. Since then, we’ve dis­cov­ered a way to ac­ti­vate the func­tion whether Mozilla likes it or not – as­sum­ing you can’t see it al­ready. Type about:con­fig into your ad­dress bar, press En­ter and agree to the warn­ing. Then search for ‘ex­ten­sions. screen­shots’ and en­sure that both of the match­ing pref­er­ences are set to ‘ false’. If they’re not, dou­ble-click them to change their val­ues. Once you’ve done that, the Screen­shots but­ton, which looks like a pair of scis­sors cut­ting out a shape, will ap­pear on your tool­bar.

To cap­ture a screenshot, click the but­ton and click or drag on the page to select the de­sired area. Click Save to copy the screenshot to your clip­board or Down­load to save it to your hard drive. Grabs are saved to the Firefox Screen­shots site ( screen­shots.firefox.com) au­to­mat­i­cally. You can set them to dis­ap­pear af­ter a spe­cific length of time or delete them man­u­ally.
