>> "Opening xvideos"."com ###.mp4". >> which is: MP4 Video (16.4MB) >> from https://cdn77-vid.xvideos-cdn"."com >> >> What should Firefox do with this file?

My only choice is: Open with Windows Media Player x86 (default)

I'd like it if Firefox would automatically convert webp images to jpg or png files instead of the opposite... stop trying to save png or jpg files as webp... and stop serving me webp images when it is optional. I understand there are websites that ONLY display webp format images, but I am also aware that jpg and png files exist on many of these websites as well. I do not want to disable the ability to display webp in the browser, but I want to turn off whatever option is currently turned on.

I'd like to go back to being able to right click, Save Image As > and end up saving a png or jpg. There have been several websites over the last few weeks that I have visited, and even if the image in the URL is named jpg or png, Firefox tries to save it as a webp. This is complicating my image saving process. I am using the Add-on named "Save webP as PNG or JPEG" which works, but slows down my saving process considerably. The Add-on does not remember the last folder I saved an image to, and adds several additional clicks to what used to be a simple process.

Is there a way in about:config to prevent Firefox from putting webp as the default file format in the Save Image As dialog box?

Suggesting that I use Internet Explorer or Edge is crazy. I'm not changing browsers.

You can demo this annoyance by trying to save this image, which is obviously supposed to be a jpg: https://media.entertainmentearth.com/assets/images/7c23e8c9a6014c57aa8f5d3e281b3834lg.jpg

Hello Everyone,

Last Friday (10/16/20) I opened a pdf file from a link that expired at the end of the day. I believe I clicked "open" instead of "save" and was able to view the pdf from the browser with a URL destination leading to a directory in my computer. No sweat, its on the computer... I figured I can access it later on. Today I look in my temp folder (URL destination) and my downloads, and can't find the file. I go to my firefox Library and see that the file is in the "downloads" section. However, it says that the file is moved or missing, and I don't remember moving or deleting this file...

Any idea what firefox did with this file? Is there any way i can restore it or restore firefox history containing the file data? Appreciate any help. Thank You.

Received notification this morning that I received the latest and greatest update from Firefox. Ever since receiving that notification, every time I do a Google Search, it comes back with response from Yahoo. My default Search engine is Google yet I can't receive anything back from Google. It won't even allow me to get in to Google Maps. What gives?

This identical message is has been sent to Webroot support.

There are several websites which I visit on a daily basis both at home and work. At home and work I regularly go to Amazon and Google. At home I go to Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, and others. I use Firefox at home and work. Webroot Internet Security Plus v9.0.29.52 is being used at home and a corporate version of Webroot is being used at work. Tonight I started the home computer up and found that Amazon required login credentials. I COPIED the login information from the Firefox "Saved Logins..." screen to log into Amazon. Instagram, et al. seemed to access fine. I performed a complete Webroot scan of my computer and one "threat" was discovered, but no information about this "threat" could be found. I then just went back to Webroot to get the version number for this complaint and it doesn't even recognize the fact that I performed a manual scan an hour ago. It thinks the last scan was 22 hours ago and it only took one second when in fact the LAST scan took over six minutes!

In order to author this complaint, I had to restart Firefox. Currently Amazon is the only website that has retained login information. All others - Google, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr AGAIN require logins! AGAIN, I can go to the saved logins within Firefox, COPY the credential information and PASTE it into the appropriate fields in the appropriate website and I'm logged back in...for now.

PLEASE explain to me how this information is continually being wiped clean and if Webroot isn't doing it, then what is, since Webroot is telling me my system is clean.

Thank you.

I accidentally entered a password in the login field. When asked by the browser about saving the password, he answered in the negative. I was surprised when the next time I entered the site, I saw two login options ([LOGIN]; and [PASSWORD]) in the dropdown menu. [LOGIN] matched my login. [PASSWORD] matched my password. Both logins are without a password. There is no stored data in lockwise for this site. If you save a random password for an unnecessary login ([PASSWORD]-[1111]), then it will be displayed in lockwise. Removing an account from lockwise removes the password, but does not affect the login. The only solution I found was to change the lockwise login. ([PASSWORD]-[1111] -> [1]-[111]), But after deleting this account, the login [PASSWORD] is returned to the drop-down menu.

I have stored over 120 bookmarks and deleted the names to save space on the quick bookmark bar. Consequently, since the bard got so full, if a bookmark or folder did have desciptive text next to it, the text would collapse so that just the icon shows. If I hover over the icon, the test reappears. These days, I've found it simpler to classify my bookmarks into folders, HOWEVER, I don't know which folder is which because the text next to the folder icons remain collapsed until I hover the mouse over them. I want to customize it so the text is frozen next to the icon or folder. How do I do this? Please help and fore thank you!
