Firefox Quantum Screenshot :: Existing and new feature suggesions


(Shubham Negi) #1

Existing feature improvements:

  1. Screenshots should be saved locally, later those can be auto synced by firefox later (Cool).
  2. After taking the screenshots, firefox should not redirect the user to the shot page. A notification informing user about the screenshot details, and stuff would be sufficient.
  3. Library can be customized, for better user interaction with their data.

New feature requests:

  1. Slideshow to display screen-shots.
  2. Should allow user to change the output format. (e.g. jpg, etc)
  3. should have information where, when it’s been taken.

PS: Mozilla done great job, and now I don’t feel recommending firefox to mates, and friends. Speed has really improved, internet surfing is wonderful, UI is precious, CPU memory consumption has reduced by 150-300 MB.

Thanks @avatara9 Features like drawing shapes, highlighting areas, and related stuff would be an great enhancement…

Thanks for the feedback. We’re always thinking about new features to add to Screenshots.

We’re working on the shapes and highlighting right now. https://github.com/mozilla-services/screenshots/issues/1849 is a place where you can watch progress

@clouserw what if I myself want to help improve firefox.
PS: I’m a developer myself (Guide me if I want to contribute). I recently downloaded the mozilla browser on my android device and I can help find improvements. Recent observations: keyboard enter is not intuitive when browsing the internet.

A good high level start is https://whatcanidoformozilla.org/ . If you want mobile firefox specifically start at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Get_Involved . Cheers

Horizontal scroll as an option. Several of the sites I visit leverage horizontal scrool, instead of vertical scroll. Would be great to capture those too.

Bonus points: The ability to do both horizontal and vertical scroll when capturing an iframe that have both scrollbars!
