I used Firefox for windows with the great Firefox extension called Fireshot, I then switched from Windows to Ubuntu and somehow Fireshot isn't available for Firefox for Linux. Are there any alternatives that I can use?

Awesome Screenshot works for both chrome and firefox.

There is also 'Quick Markup' which is more stable, up to date with latest versions and got better features/interface. My faves are ability to crop/draw/put labels/ export jpeg. available for both FF and chrome here it is: Quick Markup plugins

Thank you, your timing could not be better. I was looking for another extension for screengrabs since I moved from Firefox to Chrome, will try it – Roland Feb 1 '13 at 6:21

If you don't mind using Chrome, I've been using Aviary and I'm more than satisfied. They've got a bunch of other tools for advanced image editing too.
