Mozilla has confirmed that it is releasing its Screenshot tool for its Firefox browser for stable users to use the tool. The Add on will be added to the area which is near to the home button but will not show up as a third party add on in the extensions settings pane.

The add on which is currently rolling out is not available just yet for all users but if you want to enable it now you can do so by following the below steps:

  • Go to about:config
  • Click the I accept the risk! button the warning page, if it appears
  • Search for extensions.screenshots.system-disabled
  • Double click the matching row to toggle the value from true to false
  • Close the browser tab and restart Firefox

The handy tool only captures web content by automatically locking them. Once you capture you will see three options – cancel, download or save to the cloud. The saved image will expire after 14 days but users also have the option to change the time from 10 minutes to indefinite.

You can also share the downloaded image to the social networking sites along with option to add it as an email attachment. Users will also find a  Remove all Data option at teh bottom of the webpage which will clear your album.

The update is available for users running the latest Firefox 55 release and should be available to all users in the days to come.
