Sure miss the Firefox snipping tool. I keep reading it was not A Firefox tool but Windows and that's not true. It was not available on Edge but always under the three dot of the URL bar. Why was it removed? I rarely want a screenshot, just a snip of an area.

NEVERMIND. Found it is now and add-on called screenshot but works like the old one.

If you right click on a webpage all you get is to take a screenshot. I am finding very difficult to find an add on that will either save the entire webpage or will let you scroll off the visible part of the page for e-mails.

The Page Actions menu (•••) button is getting removed from the address bar in a future update, so Firefox Screenshot now has an optional icon you can add to the main part of the toolbar. More info in the following article: Take screenshots on Firefox.

Most webmail sites have internal scrolling regions, and screenshot tools generally cannot capture internal scrolling regions in full. For best results, click the webmail site's print button to get the "print optimized" version of the message. Then you can tap the Esc key to cancel the automatic print dialog. Then you can grab your screenshot.
