FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

How can I record my Firefox screen?

You can use one of the Firefox extensions shown here or use iMyFone Filme, which is a desktop application. Filme gives you more flexibility to record, edit, and share your screen with others. It's also more user-friendly and doesn't require extensive training. It's a plug-and-play utility specifically built for beginners who need a few pro tools for editing their own videos, enhancing them, and sharing them online.

How do I record my browser screen?

Some Firefox extensions may also have versions for Chrome and other browsers. The recommended option is to use a desktop screen recorder like Filme. You can record your browser screen as well as any other app screen running on your PC. That makes it more versatile than a browser extension.

Does Loom work with Firefox?

Unfortunately, Loom currently only supports Google Chrome for now. You can use it to view videos but no screen recording is possible. There's a desktop version that supports all browsers, but we recommend iMyFone Filme as a more versatile screen recorder and video editor.

Conclusion

All of these tools showcased here are useful depending on what you need. If it's exclusive use on the Firefox browser, any of the first five will serve your purpose.
