Hello,

I frequently have used the Firefox screen shot tool in the past. However I went to use it today (11/16/21) and it is nowhere to be found. I was curious if this has been removed in the most recent update?

Thanks, Sean

"Take a Screenshot" has been moved out of the page actions container on the location bar and has become a standalone toolbar button. You can drag this Screenshot button in customize mode from the Customize palette to the toolbar or to the overflow area. You can also use the "Ctrl+Shift+S" keyboard shortcut (Windows/Linux) and Right-click on an empty part of the page and select Take Screenshot.

Also make sure that Screenshots isn't disabled.

You can check these prefs on the about:config page.

  • extensions.screenshots.disabled = false
  • screenshots.browser.component.enabled = false

Taking screenshots can also be disabled via a policy (see about:policies).

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