Delay screenshot

When I am writing blog entries on software or bug reports, I often need to take screenshots of pull-down menus, but they disappear when I click on the icon etc.

It would be very nice if it was possible to take a screenshot with a delay of x seconds, so that I can reactivate the pull-down menu before the shot is taken.

Any chance of that feature being implemented?

Thank you for the plugin. I use it dozens of times each day.

In case of plugin for Firefox: what about hotkey (Ctrl + Alt + Z)?

Ah, I forgot that, because it is interrupted by another plugin, Zotero. However, having disabled Zotero, the FireShot hotkey does work, but it closes the pull-down menu before it takes the snapshot.

ScreenShot Studio does have a Take Screenshot in 5 Seconds, but it does not support my secondary monitor. Even if it did, it does close the pull-down menu as well (I tried it on my primary monitor).

Yes, I also need this feature: Take a screenshot with a delay.
Why does Screenshot Studio have this feature and Fireshot does not?

I was not sure about the purpose of this feature in FireShot. Can you suggest please?

A delay of X seconds is useful in capturing things like drop-down menus.

There are other times when a delay is useful; I just can't think of more right now.

Other screen capture software support variable delays; I hope FireShot will too.
