Take screenshot

Hi!

As of today, the "Take screenshot" function is missing from my Firefox.

I've already tried all the tips I've found on the Internet, but nothing worked.

Please help - thank you!

With best regards

Adi Maier

You can check this pref on the about:config page and make sure it is default (false).

  • extensions.screenshots.disabled = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".


You can find items like "Take a Screenshot" in the drop-down menu that opens if you click the "Page actions" button (3-dot icon at the right end of the location/address bar). You can right-click an item in the 3-dot "Page actions" drop-down list to add its button to the location bar for easy access.

Excellent! Thank you very much, that was the mistake. But I can't say why this was there all of a sudden !!

I have exactly the same problem. The difference is that this setting was "false" already and I still don't see this option in right-click menu.

Update. I experimented with other hidden prefs containing the same name but beginning with "devtools", there were 2 of those: both were false and I set their values to true. After I restarted Firefox the option was back. It's rather unpredictable.

Is not Ctrl-Shift-S working? You can grab a screenshot, a region/screen-object, an area, and even drag your pointer off-screen to grab an extraordinarily long area - scrolling.
