stop saving image files as webp

Firefox has been saving images from some sites as webp instead of JPG for a long time. There have been repeated threads on this subject which get locked and then pushed into the long grass.

Sure, I could botch a solution by installing an add-on to convert them, or I could use something like XnView (which I do, periodically, and in bulk) after the save event has happened, or I can edit about:info to tell Firefox not to accept webp - but this breaks functionality for some sites (like eBay), but I have found that in the end I have had to start switching to Microsoft Edge to do my browsing for a number of sites because Mozilla Firefox are ignoring repeated user requests to provide a simple option to STOP doing this.

I don't want to save any files as webp - save them as PNG if you like, or jpg, but I use an ancient copy (v3.24) of ACDsee (from the days of Windows 98) for my image browsing, sorting, viewing etc because it is perfect, blisteringly quick, has no extra editing or other functionality which I don't need or want, and it doesn't bloat up anywhere with thumbnail files... but sadly webp didn't exist back then so it doesn't support it. I have used a number of much more up to date browser-viewers, but there is nothing can touch this OLD version of ACDsee for basically brilliant design.

I'm not changing my image viewer. It's non-negotiable.

I WILL however change my web browser if I have to, if the developers of the browser continually kick into the long grass to lock, hide away and pretend there's isn't an issue which has been repeatedly flagged as an annoyance for so many users.

I have been using one form or other of 'Mozilla' family of browsers since the days of Quarterdeck Mosaic. I don't particularly want to switch my loyalty, especially to Microsoft, but if they are listening to what customers want and providing it, and Mozilla are not, what else is there to do ?

I am a retired systems developer. I cannot envisage this being SUCH a big ask.

Modern software treats its users like idiots and takes away control, doing everything it's assumes on their behalf that they will want.

It is not difficult to provide an option within settings for when saving webp files to save as webp, png or jpg with conversion if necessary. All you need to do is hear the screams and respond. :)

Prior to updating, when I typed a question from the Firefox homepage in the search box in the middle of the page, my search parameters would appear there where it would be easy to see. Now, every time I type anything in a search box, it jumps to the address bar, causing me to have to shift my line of sight to the top left of my screen rather than the center of the screen. Not to mention the text on the address bar is several orders of magnitude smaller than the test on the web pages search bar. So how to I shut this behavior down? If I click in a search box I expect my text to appear in that search box, NOT in the address bar.

On some websites the fonts are all displaying in a large bold text instead of whatever font that page is meant to use. It will revert to a default font if i turn off the ability for sites to choose their own fonts, but this interferes with the functionality of a lot of sites' icons so its not a great solution. This also stops when i go into troubleshooting mode, but when i went through hardware acceleration and my extensions one by one, none of them were the cause.

images in order: my roll20 homepage with the incorrect font display, the same page with fonts disabled (note the notification icons in the upper right are broken now though), the same page in troubleshoot mode with the correct font display

How to mark previous answers to a support question as obsolete?

This is an issue with Mozilla Support. I'd like to be able to mark an answer as obsolete, as it's potentially misleading.

If you search on Google for "firefox toggle bookmark bar", the first result is this:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/865261

It indicates that there's no shortcut to toggle the bookmark bar, which was probably true when it was written, but isn't true now (can use Ctrl+Shift+B). As the question thread is archived, there's no way to add additional responses to indicate the current Firefox functionality, and users that search for this information may get the impression that the older answer is still accurate.

I don't mean to single this example out, I'm sure there are others and the author of the answer did nothing wrong, but I would like there to be some way to help direct users to more up-to-date information.

hello there i have the following problem the company i work for has unistalled remotely firefox from my laptop, and i do not have any way to re-install it back i have managed in some way to obtain a copy of portable firefox on the same laptop since i was not informed about this process, i have not saved my password externally and unfortunately, i was not using a firefox profile

in few words: i do not have my passwords anymore

i have seen that in such folder: C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

there are still saved three subfolders (one of them has the last modified date as 13th Sep, meaning today), therefore i think that my profile (and all relevant passwords) are still there somewhere

i would like to understand if and how i can import the passwords from the unistalled firefox in the portable firefox: i have already tried to copy those directories in: C:\Users\XXX\Desktop\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile

but no success, passwords are not importyed. please, i need help

thanks.

Hi all,

Today I ran into a Page Fault BSOD that resulted in me having to perform a system rollback, after doing this, audio on FireFox specifically does not work, I have so far done a FireFox refresh and an uninstall -> Reinstall to no avail, audio is not muted, drivers are up to date, and for all intents and purposes, audio should be working.

Running Windows 10 and FireFox ver 92.0

Can anyone help me? I have no idea what the hell is causing this and I'm completely out of options at this stage given that I've tried everything humanly possible.

I run Firefox on a couple Windows PCs and one Linux Mint PC. Each of them is running Firefox 92.0.

My customary process had been to use one of the Windows PCs as my master copy of Firefox bookmarks. I do not use synch; rather, every so often I export the bookmarks from the master machine and restore the export to my other machines. I've not had a problem with that process in the past.

Today I encountered a problem for the first time: I exported the bookmarks from my "master" Windows PC and usual and then restored to my other PCs. The other Windows PCs did so without trouble, but the Mint PC did not restore the export file correctly: When I attempt to restore on the Mint PC, I get the folder structure from the original Windows export, but none of the folders is populated with bookmarks; instead, all 5K or so individual bookmarks are listed individually at the top level of my "Bookmarks Menu" folder, beneath the list of empty folders.

I've run the about:support Places Database "Verify Integrity" function on both the Windows master PC and on the Mint PC. The function does not flag any issues.

Any idea what's going on, and how I can resolve it? Might there be a bug in the Linux 92.0 that I should report somewhere? Is there a workaround I can try in the meanwhile, e.g., copy places.sqlite from the master machine to the Linux machine?

Thanks in advance for your help / guidance.

Regards, Rob L
