Screenshots in Firefox

9 Mar 2015

I have only recently learnt about this – it’s a nice trick available from the Firefox Developer Toolbar

The Developer Toolbar is NOT the same as the Web Developer menus – it’s a command-line which gives you access to a number of developer options from within Firefox.

Press SHIFT+F2 to open the Developer Toolbar.

Once the toolbar is open, you can tell Firefox to take a screenshot of the current viewport with this command:

    screenshot homepage.png

You can pass an additional argument to get a screenshot of the entire page:

    screenshot homepage.png --fullpage

All images are saved to the browser’s default download directory.
