Quickly Take Screenshots When Using Mozilla Firefox

When using Mozilla Firefox, capturing screenshots of web pages can be done directly through an add-on like Easy Screenshot.

Download and install the add-on from here. Once installed, a browser restart will be needed.

Easy Screenshot will show up as an icon next to Firefox address bar.
