Screenshot in Firefox 88


Well-Known Member
for those who knew and used the 'take a screenshot' feature which was placed in Firefox's page actions.

Page actions was/is the three little horizontal dots located in the toolbar...or sometimes just inside the address bar

In previous Firefox versions you would click on those three dots (page actions) and select 'take a screenshot' from the drop down.

In Firefox 88 this has been changed/discontinued).

Instead, choose a spot on a site/webpage, where there is no hyperlink, right click, and choose 'take screenshot' from the dropdown.

You are then able to drag or click on a page to select a esc to cancel

Or, you can choose to customise the browser by right clicking in the toolbar and choosing 'customise toolbar'......locate the 'take a screenshot; icon and drag it to a spot on the toolbar that suits you....then click on 'Done" to close that toolbar icons window.

left click on the icon and follow the prompts

Just a little tip to make life easier/simpler

Nice tip, Brian - I have pinned this for the time being while the "customers" are getting used to the new FF.

Thanks for sharing :)
