Can't save any pictures from anywhere

This has happened to me before, but now it's really bad. I can't save ANY photos to my computer. For example, when I right click to save an image, say on Pinterest, and go to save it a file extension doesn't appear. When I click on the drop down menu for file type nothing shows up either.

I followed these suggestions, but no go.

Also, I don't have the option:

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

in my about:config.

I've cleared the cache and cookies and I had just did a clean install of the most recent update when I re-installed Windows 10. This is very frustrating to me because I save a lot of images from various sources. I'd really appreciate any and all help.

Thank you!

Hi B,

I am sorry to hear you are having issues with saving images.

Are you able to drag and drop pictures?

There is add-on support which might be a workaround you are looking for : Double-click Image Downloader {link}

From what I understand, after enabling the extension you can either :

  • Right click any picture and select Download Image to save into your Downloads directory.
  • Double Click any picture to save into your Downloads directory.

Let me know if this helps!

network.http.accept.default is no longer present as a pref in Firefox 66+, but defaults to */*

  • network.http.accept.default = "*/*"

The image.http.accept pref is still supported, but that only is to inform the website that WebP is supported.

  • image.http.accept = image/webp,*/*

Did you try to add the file extension (e.g. .jpg or .png) yourself in the save dialog?
