If you use the Firefox browser, you can take screenshots of web pages or selected areas in your browser. You can do this using the tools available on Windows, Linux, and Mac without having to install the plugin.
Access the Firefox screenshot tool
The screenshot tool in Firefox is called Firefox Screenshots, which is very easy to use. To access this tool, first, open Firefox and log in to the website you want to take a picture of. Right-click on the screen and then select Take Screenshot from the menu that appears.
Firefox browser switches to photo capture mode, allowing you to choose from four different ways to take a screenshot. These four methods are:
- Take a photo of a part of the page that is automatically detected
- Screenshots of the entire web page
- Screenshots from a visible part of the website
- Screenshots of the selected area on the page
In the following, we will examine each of these four methods.
Screenshots of a part of the page that is automatically detected
After selecting the Take a Screenshot option, which we described earlier, you will enter the automatic detection mode. By moving the mouse pointer on the screen, you will see parts of the website being highlighted. These sections can include the title, image, advertisement, paragraph of the text, and so on.
After selecting the area to take the screenshot, select Copy if you want to paste the image elsewhere; Otherwise, you must select the Download option to save the photo to your computer.
Click the X icon to exit this mode and return to the normal website page.
Click the ” Save Full Page ” option in the upper right corner of the window to take a photo of the entire webpage in the Firefox browser. In this mode, you can take a full-screen screenshot by scrolling across the page.
After clicking, you will see a preview of the screenshot. Then, as in the previous method, you can select one of these options: If you want to paste the image elsewhere, select Copy; Otherwise, to save the photo to the computer, you must select the Download option. Click the X icon to exit the screenshot mode and return to the normal web page.
Screenshots from the visible part of the website
If you do not want to take screenshots of the entire page of the website, you can only record the visible part of it. To do this, click on the “Save Visible” option in the upper right corner.
Then, just like the two options above, select one of the Copy or Download or Exit options as needed.
Screenshots of the selected area on the page
The last way to take screenshots in Firefox is to manually select the area. To do this, you must specify the part of the page that you want to take a picture of. After specifying the area by dragging your two fingers on the screen, lift your fingers from the screen to see the selected area.
If you want to adjust the screenshot size, drag the corner or edge. When you drag, you will see its width and height in pixels. This option is very useful if you need a certain size of an image.
Now, as in the previous options, select one of the Copy or Download or Exit options as needed.
After taking the screenshot, you will return to the normal page of the website and you can continue reading the page.
