Strange behaviour when copying images on Mac

Long time listener, first time caller... :) [Seriously have been using and loving Firefox/Mozilla since 2004-2005, before that was Netscape Navigator, this is the first time I can recall having an issue that I can't find already written up and solved. Hence, this post.]

I've been having some odd issues with Firefox (85.0.2 64-bit) on my Intel Mac (Big Sur 11.2.1) for the past few months, and this morning decided to dig in deeper.

The backstory: When I’ve wanted to copy and image and paste it into Apple Messages, the images sometimes don’t send because Messages doesn’t support TIFF, WEBP, or PNG formats when sending to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account (aka using standard MMS like to Android phones). So, I then have to convert the failed image to JPG, delete the failed message, and drag the saved JPG image file into Messages and can then resend it.

The issue: Today, I discovered that when I copy a JPG image from Firefox, and paste it into Apple messages, it seems that it doesn’t send because it appears to be either copied or pasted as a different format than the original image?

To reproduce:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “View Image Info”
  3. Right-Click on the JPEG image and select “Copy Image”
  4. Paste into Messages to send to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account
  5. Hit enter to send
  6. Wait a few seconds for failure
  7. Click on failure Info
  8. Right-Click on image and select Open
  9. Preview shows the file as TIFF not JPG

To simplify:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “Copy Image”
  3. Open Preview and select “New from Clipboard”
  4. Select “Tools -> Show Inspector”
  5. Preview shows the file as PNG not JPG

What I’ve tried: Copy & paste of same image from Firefox - Safe Mode fails - So, doubt it is something in my Firefox config Copy & paste of same image from Safari works - So, doubt it is something MacOS related However, copy & paste of same image from Chrome fails too - So, maybe it is something MacOS related?

Any suggestions on what to try next?

I use Thunderbird 78.8.0 and Firefox 86.0 build3

I changed my gmail password in FF and can use gmail in an FF tab but TB login fails with new or old gmail password. I recently changed Thunderbird security from 0Auth2 to 'normal password'. I tried removing my account from TB and adding back - it still fails. What did I do wrong?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi,

After reading on the new update with Firefox 86, it seems that you have made some really good changes on the way cookies are handled forcing each site to keep their cookie separate from everyone else.

So is the Is the multi account containers still useful in Firefox 86 if what I'm using them for is to keep from being tracked?

It seems that they would be useful if I wanted to open several different Gmail accounts at the same time from within their respective folders.

Thank you for your help.

Can anyone help. I have just set up a new Firefox account. I tried to enter two different secondary email addresses, but both are already in use.

I am sure I had a Firefox account many years ago and this is the problem. How can I delete the old account without knowing the main email address so I can use those email addresses again?

I recently subscribed to Mozilla VPN and it's been working fine for a couple of weeks. But in the last 24 hours something changed and it won't stay connected. No matter what location I choose (NY, Chicago, etc.) and turn it on, it almost immediately disconnects with the error message "Couldn't start VPN." Most recent log entries are as follows:

can't use url search bar. every address I attempt to type gets immediately replaced by my long list of text replacement words. I've never seen an app just force it like this, I can't even close/ cancel the word like every other app allows. and it's only happens in the url bar... it makes no sense and I don't understand how it hasn't been disabled for the url bar only. is there a way to disable this in settings? it's the dumbest thing I've ever seen. I've been using ios ff since 2015 and has been present the whole time and I'm absolutely sick of it.
