Moving the screenshot function in Firefox 88 is a bad idea!
It's a very bad idea to move the screenshot function from the context menu in the address bar to a toolbar item you first have to position by customizing. This is exactly the kind of unnecessary interface change which annoys so many Firefox users. Okay, so why is it bad? Most "normal" users don't fiddle with interfaces, they accept it as it is. They expect functions they often use to stay in the same spot. If it's no longer there they think it's gone (and they're frustrated). They surely won't go looking for it in a customization menu. For me as a web designer the screenshot tool was extremely handy when dealing with clients, because it was very easy to explain where to find and how to use it, to send a screenshot of a website problem. Again, many common users don't know how to take screenshots with their system tools, so this was really helpful. Now, instead of explaining where to find it, I'll first have to explain how to customize the toolbar, what the item looks like, how to position it, etc. etc. The simplicity and helpfulness is gone. Suggestion: leave the screenshot function where it is by default, but offer the advanced users a way to make it a customizable item. Everyone is happy.

I agree with this point, but we don't have much influence on that team. They removed the whole 3-dot menu from the address bar because telemetry says it was hard to find for an average user. The whole interface will be redesigned/simplified very soon, basing on a telemetry studies.Læs dette svar i sammenhæng 👍 1

What about right click -> Take Screenshot? It's even easier than before.
Thanks for your reply. Yes, that's even easier, I wasn't aware of the possibility - shame on me. Although I often use the right click menu I never registered the option, which kind of is my point that one sticks to one's established ways of doing things ... That solves my communication problem, but I still don't see the necessity to remove the screenshot function from the address bar context menu.

>They removed the whole 3-dot menu from the address bar He, I sense a shit storm coming :-) For what it's worth, I do like the redesign of FF 89. I'm curious how they're going to re-implement the sharing options.
