Screenshots in Mozilla Firefox with an integrated tool

Screenshots, can be used to illustrate processes, document technical problems on a PC, or share communications. Until now, Firefox users had to use special add-on screenshot tools or the Windows and Mac screenshot functions. Those days are over. The Firefox browser has had an integrated screenshot tool since the release of Firefox 56. For those of you who miss the screenshot icon after it was removed from the search bar with the release of Firefox 88, don’t worry: the feature still exists. Just follow our instructions on how to use it.

Right-click Firefox Screenshot

Step 1: Go to the page that you want to screenshot in Firefox. Right-click on an empty part of the page. A pop-up menu will open, and you can select “Take Screenshot”.

Step 2: The screenshot button with the selection tool will now open. Use the selection frame to choose the desired screenshot area, individual elements, or the entire screen for the screenshot. To do this, drag the frame around the elements you want to include in the screenshot.

Step 3: Depending on your needs, you can click “Save visible” if you need only the visible area of the website, or “Save full page” if you want to take a Firefox full page screenshot, including the parts that are not visible.
