Earlier this week Firefox announced its upcoming "Quantum" browser that will bring twice the internet browsing speeds when it launches on November 14. Ahead of that major update, the company is now releasing a few minor additions to Firefox on desktop that will let you save screenshots, share content more easily between your computer and smartphone, and more.

Screenshots allow you to capture any area within the Firefox browser without needing to download new software. After tapping a "Screenshot" button, Firefox presents a new interface where you can customize the specific part of the page you want to take a shot of, or let Firefox automatically detect the area you want, and then click save.


You can save the screenshot to the web and generate a URL for easy sharing, or download the file to your computer. Firefox will also keep track of all the screenshots in a new "My Shots" folder, saving images automatically for two weeks.

"Send Tabs" allows you to two-finger click on a tab open on Mac and select "Send tab to..." and choose between synced iPhone and iPad devices, which will then have the same tab ready for you in the mobile Firefox app. The same function can be repeated in reverse, and is supported by PCs and Android smartphones as well. Firefox also ensured that Send Tabs is encrypted end-to-end, so "even Mozilla can't decrypt it."


The last new feature is coming to the United States first and aims to make filling out address forms easier, allowing you to complete online forms on shopping sites and relief organizations through a dropdown menu.

After you fill out the relevant information once on Firefox, the browser will ask to automatically save the field information to "Saved Addresses," which will then resurface when another website asks for similar data. You can save multiple addresses, which Firefox said should be useful for information like where you work, your home, and addresses of family members when you send gifts.

These updates are available in the latest version of Firefox, which you can download now from the Firefox website.

....no one cares about Firefox, it died in like 2009, let it rest
Wrong. I care. FF is the only non-corporate, trustworthy browser. Especially for Windows. Plus they invest in a lot of pro-Internet advocacy.

Despite how many shortcomings Firefox may have, I'll always support it. Much respect is given for their efforts in regards to this.

You don't know many browsers if you think that's only one.
So what are a few non corporate browsers that people actually use? Opera? Dolphin? Brave? You get beyond Chrome, Edge/I.E. and Safari (all commercial products) then Firefox is probably the only remaining browser most people have heard of, let alone used.

If it would just stop slowing my system down so much. This latest version was supposed to speed up browsing. Nope...
No it's dreadfully slow on my mid 2014 macbook. Almost unusable when you compare it to safari or anything else come to that. On my hack it's just about OK with its extra oomph.

Are you saying brave, vivaldi etc are corporate browsers that you can't trust unlike ff? News to me and I'd image them. Vivaldi especially is getting a very decent following and I'd imagine when ff users find a chunk of their extensions no longer work they'll grab quite a few more.

Also one of the big things about ff was they manually reviewed extensions so didn't have the problems that often popup with rogue chrome ones. That's now changed and in the first instance it's now also an automated process, and guess what the first extensions with hidden miners have just been found

You forgot to tell us how much Chrome is great and how much you love it...that's the standard response that must be accompanied to any FF hate, please stick to the protocol.
