I understand the newest version of Firefox offers support for WebP images, which is cool and great... but not when I need to download those images for use on my computer. As an artist I need to be able to save things as .jpg or .png for my art programs (or even preview) to be able to open them. Is there any way to make this an option, or to not default to webp when saving images?

I've also tried changing the extension on the file using the "all files" option but it just corrupts the file and won't open them.

Microsoft will not let me use Opera without having to reinstall it every time Windows updates. I've been using Opera for 4 years and all my data and bookmarks are there. Firefox does not give the option to import from OPERA!!! "Other browsers" never includes Opera. Help? Anyone know how to import from the browser I've been using for years?

Recently, when a popup window appears, the toolbar doesn't have buttons for any of my addons.

In about:config, I'd intentionally set dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar to true (following the solution provided in: question 1206512).

Previously, this was successful in ensuring that popup windows got the full toolbar, but now it has stopped working.

I'm not sure exactly which release this started with.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Set dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar to true.

2) Visit https://jeffersonscher.com/res/popit.html and follow the third link.

3) The window that pops up has no toolbar icons for the installed extensions.

I imported bookmarks from Safari on my Macbook Pro. When I click on the 'Bookmarks Menu' and 'Other Bookmarks' about half of the folders do not show any bookmarks. However, when I open the Bookmarks through the sidebar, everything shows up....all folders and contents. So all my bookmarks were imported but half of the folders' contents do not show up if I go through the Bookmarks and Other Bookmarks menu. Going through the menu is easier so I hope someone has a solution. Thanks.

Say that I have a login at a site, and I got there previously with another browser. When I go to the same site with Firefox for the first time, that site's ID field might drop down to show a number of entries, and many times (but not always) there is no "View Saved Logins" below the list.

Here is an example of a site than many readers of this might not go to: DevonTechnologies.com and this might be the same for you. Devon's login ID wants an email address, and the field dropped down to show 29. A bunch of them were emails I would swear on my kid's heads I have never used anywhere, not even in another browser, and one was a misspelling of my own email address. Only a small few were addresses that were valid elsewhere. But here is the rub: A search of about:logins for the weird addresses and my misspelling came up empty.

Further, I can go to another site I have never visited with Firefox, and I might not get a drop-down at all or I might get just one of my three typical email addresses.

For those sites where I have used Firefox for the first time, the questions are

  • Where did Firefox get those spurious addresses?
  • Where did Firefox get a good address, and why did it leave out the "usual" others?
  • Why are the odd logins not found at about:logins?

I have Firefox 76.0.1 under Catalina 10.15.4, and I sync with Lockwise.

Thanks.

I would like to be able to attach a container to a saved bookmark, so if I want to open it, it would open in that container by default. That would help greatly keeping my user data separated.

I just had my OS reinstalled with Win 10 32 bit on my 64 bit system. When I try to up or download anything from the web, FFox freezes and need to exit it with End Task. Could the 332 bit win 10 be the problem?

I tried it in safe mode, same problem. 

are there some settings I can look at? I tried Chrome and no problem downloading, Hope someone can help I like FFox more then the others.

even when I go to clear cookies from a site like this one https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/ by clicking the padlock icon, and select Clear Cookies and Site data, it freezes.

I can download and Save programs top right of the screen.

So the problem is that Firefox doesn't play any HTML5 content. Weirdly except for Youtube. Youtube works just fine. But every other Website shows errors. Even songsterr.com. I'm using latest Firefox 76.0.1 on a recent Ubuntu 20. 04 LTS installation. Usual troubleshooting like updates doesnt work because "sudo apt-get upgrade" doesn't find any updates. I tried the same websites in the latest version of Chromium and they work perfectly fine. I couldn't find a mistake in the firefox settings or something so I'm confused. Disabling Plugins didn't change anything and turning of tracking protection didn't either. What is the Problem here and how can I solve it?

and then I have to start again using my account for synch which a mobile phone (there I never have problems). But why is it resetting by itselves now last time yesterday, first after weeks and then shorter and shorter. I am a great fan of Firefox already using it for 18 years now but this is anoying as I not always has that mobile close to me and therefore all history/accounts are temporarily gone.

Hello,

Just recently there has been issues with how a job search at Glassdoor.com is appearing via my Firefox browser. It seems that the formatting is all messed up, and everything gets shoved to the left margin, and there is no scroll bar. (See first image)

If I reduce the size of the zoom level, I can see the search results actually have appeared, but they are shoved even further to the left margin and no scroll bar again. (See second image)

This only happens with anything connected with a job search at Glassdoor.com. Salary search, company search, etc are all fine, just the job search, which is really inconvenient since I am actively looking for a job.

I've attached images of this for you.

The job search pages work fine in Chrome. Please don't make me use Chrome.

Thank you,

Sheri

Example....

I am in main bookmark page. Scroll down to middle of bookmark and select a bookmarked website. Click on website to view. Then click on upper left hand corner arrow and it returns me to the top of the bookmark page, rather than returning to the same location of the bookmark.

Disabled all the plugin, cleared cache, history, etc., and still get the same results. Really frustrating to have to scroll down the bookmark page to get to the website.

Never had this problem until installing v. 75 and 76.

Ever since the upgrade to Firefox 76.0 on Windows 10 Pro ... sometimes I click on a link ... then click on the back button ... I am returned to the top of the page instead of the location from which I exited the original page

I have seen this reported several times ... with the workaround of Open Link in New Tab (which I have had to use for YouTube for several years) ... but now all pages (including my own) ... exhibit this problem

I have started Firefox in safe mode as well as with all plugins disabled ... and the results are the same

The page in question is my BOOKMARKS.html from this or any other profile ... if that helps

Hi there,

I'm frequently using the network monitor tool as developer. Now I found two bugs:

Gateway timeout: While developing I got a gateway timeout for an endpoint of my current project. In the console this is correctly logged but in the network monitor I don't see anything. This is quite confusing. The console log looks like this:

ERROR Error: "Uncaught (in promise): S: {"headers":{"normalizedNames":{},"lazyUpdate":null,"headers":{}},"status":504,"statusText":"Gateway Timeout","url":"https://myurl.myurl/profil","ok":false,"name":"HttpErrorResponse","message":"Http failure response for https://myurl.myurl/profile: 504 Gateway Timeout","error":null}"


Replaying request: Very useful feature, however it seems to have an issue with Authentication headers. When my angular application does a service call it works fine. When I then replay this request I get the response of the backend: 401 you are not logged in. Upon closed inspection I printed out the headers in this response and noted that after replaying the request the header "Authentication: Bearer ...." is missing.

Any hints how to fix these issues?

Also is this the correct space to report issues/bugs? I also found this url: https://github.com/mdn/kuma/issues which i'm not quite sure whether it would be the right space to open tickets for firefox network monitor tool.

Thanks for your help!
