STOP saving images as WebP
Please add an option to disable saving images as webP. This is useless. If this is not going to get addressed in the next update I will, among many others uninstall Firefox and use a different browser.
WebP is a garbage format. Maybe it's not, maybe it's great, but it still is not widely supported yet. So pull your heads out of your *** and fix this sh**.

This issue is the servers are likely adding WebP compression on the fly to JPEG and PNG images and Firefox does not have a converter to convert them back.
Just to verify... You're saying that when you go to save any image from the web you get WebP?
I am almost certain that I have seen reference to an extension for that.

Hi Andrew, can you head over to Mozilla Connect and vote for this product idea:
It's "trending" but it needs a big push to get onto the product roadmap.
Oops, I updated that post and now it's hidden until a moderator approves it. Sorry about that.
