    Screenshots is a tool in Firefox that allows you to save an image of all or parts of ... works slightly differently depending on which version of Firefox you're using.
    This feature will be rolled out to users of Firefox 55

    To use it, click on the Firefox Screenshots icon a31878b14229505f3c08044c7b373412.png on the toolbar.

    Don't see Screenshots? Mozilla are still testing this feature so not everyone will see it.

    Note: Firefox Screenshots currently will not work in Private Browsing.
    The technology behind Firefox Screenshots is still under active development in Firefox.
    For now, shots taken while you browse privately would show up in your normal downloads list.
    In order to protect privacy Mozilla have removed support for Screenshots in Private Browsing Mode entirely until they can build a more private experience

    What types of screenshots can I capture?

    There are several options for capturing screenshots:
    • Capture parts of a page:
      When you move the mouse cursor over the page, different parts of the page will be automatically highlighted.
      Click on the one you want to save.
    • Select a region of the page:
      Drag or click on the page to select a custom region of the page that you wish to capture.
      You can change the size and area to be captured using the marker points on the edge of the area.
    To view all of the screenshots you've captured, choose My Shots.


    How do I save my screenshots?
    • Download screenshots as image files:
      To download the area as an image (.png) file, click the down arrow icon c27da0643732a83885cfd72696ef5149.png .
      The file will be saved to the same folder you use as Firefox's default download location.
    • Save screenshots online:
      Select the Save icon fb5be4565d337bd6ea1bdd2c7159ce20.png to save the image to the Firefox Screenshots service for access online at a later date.
      To access saved images click on the Firefox Screenshots icon a31878b14229505f3c08044c7b373412.png and then select My Shots.
      By default, screenshots are saved for 14 days, but if you click on the expiry date, you have the option to change this.
    • Cancel:
      To cancel your selection, click on the Cancel icon 8ef1471caa48576f2e1d57680dbf06aa.png .


    How do I delete screenshots saved to My Shots?

    To delete individual shots, just click the Trash icon, then confirm.
    This icon can be found on each shot page and by hovering on each shot thumbnail on the My Shots page.

    In order to delete all of your shots at once, do the following:
    • Click on the Screenshots icon on your browser toolbar.
    • Click My Shots in the upper right corner of the screen.
    • On the My Shots page, click the link that says Remove All Data.
      On the subsequent screen, click Proceed.
