First of all, I want to say that actually getting to the point of being to ask a question here is ridiculous. I know that you're trying to avoid repeat questions, but Jesus Christ. Have a look at Stack Overflow to see how to do it correctly.

So I'm having an issue where some images that I save are being corrupted. This started happening with the most recent version of Firefox.

Image in question:

Here is the above image saved from different browsers. The one saved from Firefox is corrupt.

"Tools -> Page Info -> Media" shows this image as a WebP image. The page title also shows this:

xihsxw0muvepmc3j.jpg (WEBP Image, 3286 × 2182 pixels) - Scaled (30%)

Firefox 65 supports WebP images and websites may not fallback to JPG images, but instead may send an image in WebP format with a smaller file size as a JPG image.

There are prefs present on the about:config page to control this new feature and let web pages know whether WebP is supported. You can remove "image/webp," from the accept prefs to prevent getting WebP images send by the server.

  • image.http.accept = */*
    (default: image/webp,*/*)
  • network.http.accept.default = text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8
    (default: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,*/*;q=0.8)
