by Jason Spidle

Capture Fox is a free Firefox extension that enables one-click video and audio capture of your Firefox screen or Windows desktop. Capture Fox allows you to quickly and easily create narrated screencast videos from within Firefox. Using Capture Fox, all it takes is a simple mouse click to begin recording your mouse and keyboard actions within Firefox or on the Windows desktop. Paired with the audio capture capabilities, it's easy to create rich and informative video screencasts using Capture Fox.

Download and install Capture Fox from the Firefox add-ons repository. Restart Firefox as required.

Initiate video and audio capture by pressing the Capture Fox icon in the status bar or selecting Capture Fox from the Tools menu.

Specify the properties of your recording to begin video and audio capture. You can manually set the video quality, frames per second and capture area at this stage.

Complete video and audio capture by again pressing the Capture Fox icon in the status bar or selecting Capture Fox from the Tools menu.

Review the recording by selecting "Open the video" in the dialog box that appears. If the video is to your satisfaction you can choose to save it locally as an AVI file, otherwise you can also choose to re-record the video.
