Hello Firefox OS Enthusiasts. In this short guide I will show you how to take screenshots of your Firefox OS based telephone screen.

How To Take Screenshots On Firefox OS Based Devices

To take screenshots on your Firefox OS powered device: LG Fireweb, ZTE Open and Alcatel One Touch Fire, press the power button and the home button simultaneously. On the Geeksphone Peak and Geeksphone Keon, which has touchscreen, touch both the power and the homekey.

Once the key combination is released (when you take your hands of the key combination), the phone will take a screenshot of the device’s screen.

For those who don’t know yet, Firefox OS is a new Linux based mobile operating system, built by using the new HTML5 technology by the Mozilla developers. For now, it is used as default on smartphones with modest hardware specs, developed by LG, ZTE, Alcatel and Geek. The next Firefox OS based phone will be Huawei Ascend Y300II, which has better hardware specs than all the existing smartphones using Mozilla’s OS.  It has been also ported experimentally on the Google Nexus 7 tablet, but there are some apps that don’t work yet.
