When I take a screenshot of the current webpage with the built-in Firefox screenshot tool then users are always prompted if they want to copy or download the just (internally) created screenshot.

How can I tell Firefox to ALWAYS AUTOMATICALLY "download" the screenshot?

How can I customize the resulting screenshot filename? I want to e.g. add a timestamp with the pattern


to the filename.

Not Mozilla (browser) based, but might ? do what you need (including timestamp), SiteShoter - Take a screenshot of a Web site.

This extension lets you configure date-time into the file name, among other useful features: ... creenshot/
