How do I change the file names automatically?

I am using Fireshot 0.98.53  in Windows 8 and  Google Chrome Version 35.0.1916.114 m 
I used Fireshot on Ancestry.com.   I successfully captured several screen shots but the automatically generated file names were too long so  I was not able to use Picassa photo viewer until I manually shortened the file names, also those files would not display in PaperPort until I shortened their names.   I went into the options and found a place to change the file name.  I entered the number 1 and thought it might name the next file 2 but,  now everything I capture has this same name, so each time it replaces the previous capture with the new one of the same name.  It gives no warning about overwriting a file with the same name.  How can I make it automatically give shorter names to my files?  How can I prevent it from overwriting a file with the same name? Thanks

Thanks. I'd also like to ask why this is not the one set at default?

Thank you.  %n did what I needed it to do.  In future versions it would be nice to add a warning that a file with the same name will be over written.
