I had fireshot and I try to use it today and it was expired. I didn't know it was for 60 days. I need a FREE one just like fireshot. Can someone help me with this please?

According to the AOM page, Fireshot is free, not a 60 day trial. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5648/

The OP was probably using the PRO version of this extension which has a "30" day trial period... then you purchase it if you want that version.

That's the pro one on that site. When I go to there website it takes me to pro the one I installed. I need the one that is NOT pro. The unlimited one if there is one.

The link posted leads to the AMO site & the free version.
> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5648/
The Pro version is available via the Fireshot Pro version download link..

[q]
If you don't pay for it, it will automatically switch into simple mode in 30 days.
You won't lose anything except advanced features provided by FireShot Pro.
FireShot simple is still free and it will be yours forever.

If its free then why does say its expired and 30 day trial is over? Because I can't use it. Whever I click on the icon I get the message and I can't use it at all.

AFAICS....
Only the Pro version has all the features & functions.
If you use them & now find that you cannot because it's reverted to the free one, then you'll have to buy the Pro version.

Try un-installing it, closing & re-opening Firefox & re-installing the free version.

You mean closing firefox and reopen it and install it again?

See if this thread on the Fireshot forum helps sort things out.
Apparently, it's got a few bugs to iron out.

It looks like everyone else having problems on that thread. I wonder if I try the earlier version.

Did you read the post by "Wendy"?
The latest version is usually the best option.

If this is the lastest version you are talking about: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... rsion-0.87 that one is the one gives me the pop saying Fireshot pro expired.

Sorry but I cannot help any further.
As I mentioned & you saw, it seems to have a few bugs.
Have you tried what Wendy suggested in that thread re; IE & Firefox?
