Only last week, I was able to screen record off sites that other browsers wouldn't let you. Today, when I tried Firefox, it no longer allows for screen recordings. What happened? Does anyone have any useful suggestions to get around this? It was really great for preparing lectures. Thanks!

Record Firefox with a Screen Recorder Extension

Screen Recorder is an extension launched by Bernard. The interface is quite intuitive, and all options are listed clearly and directly. The operation is quite simple. Only a few clicks are needed to record the Firefox screen or take Firefox screenshots. All in your control.

The good thing about this tool is that you don't have to download software to your computer. However, the recorded file is saved in WEBM format by default. If you don't want this format, you may convert the recording to other formats with a file-converting tool or record with a screen recorder that supports more formats.

Screen Recorder Extension

Currently, this tool doesn't support recording audio in Firefox. This is because the navigator.mediaDevices.getDisplayMedia API doesn't have audio capabilities. If you want to record Firefox, try EaseUS RecExperts.

How to record Firefox screen with the extension:

Step 1. Add this extension to your Firefox Browser and go to the recorder interface to adjust the desired options.

Step 2. Determine the video source, audio source, and video quality, then click the "Start" button to proceed. The video source could be your desktop, a window, or a tab. The audio source can be the system's audio, microphone, mixed, or no audio at all.

Step 3. A popup will appear when you click the start button, which allows you to select the desired screen, tab, or window.

Step 4. Next, click on the "Share" button to start recording. When you want to stop the recording, press the "Stop" button. The recorded video will be saved to your computer automatically.

Compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux, this tool can be used on the Firefox browser on your various devices. Not just screen recording, it can also stream games, TV series, sports concerts, etc., without a hassle.

Professionals say they like this tool because it offers many advanced functions like recording multiple screens and recording with a virtual webcam. However, novices may find the learning curve of using this tool a bit huge. So, think twice before making your decision.
