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.

I just updated Firefox and ended up with Quantum. How in the world can I get my previous version back, and get rid of Quantum? I have never been so disappointed in Firefox as I am right now. I never, ever would have clicked update if I knew I would end up with this.

I just updated to Firefox version 64 and noticed that you can no longer turn off update checks.

The only available options are "Automatically install updates" and "Check for updates but let you choose to install them".

I administer a public access computer lab and don't want "A new version is available!" popups to appear while our patrons are using our computers.

Is there a way to turn off update checking in this version of Firefox? Perhaps in about:config?

I woke up this morning to find that firefox updated without my permission. this annoys me. What annoys me the most, however, is not having to re-customize every thing on the toolbar, but the fact that there is NO REFRESH BUTTON. I liked having a refresh button. it was very handy. I liked having it to the left of my address bar. Why can I no longer have a refresh button to the left of the address bar? the only one I can seem to find in imbedded in a very awkward and inconvenient place inside the address bar. I feel this is unacceptable. When looking at the page made to advertize firefox, it stats that it was "Made with a mission to put you first." this is not putting me first. this is taking control away from me and making the interface that much less intuitive. I would like to have my refresh button back. I do not want to have to go through antoher workaround like downloading a classic theme and screwing with that. I just want the refresh button. now, where is the refresh button and how can I place it where I want it to go? it's a simple question, yet I have not found any answer for it anywhere on this site.

Gmail will not load in Firefox, but will in Chrome. I've cleared my history, cookies, and cache. I made sure I had the latest Firefox update, restarted my computer, checked in internet connection, everything I could think of. There is no error message; it just stops loading and the page is totally blank, as you can see on the attached image. I've run out of ideas and know-how. Anyone else had this issue and resolved it?

I am trying to import Firefox bookmarks from a json file on another disc, and merge these with my existing bookmarks.

I only have options to import an html file. I can also use restore to bring in the file, but this will overwrite my current bookmarks, and I want to merge the two.

Latest Firefox uses THREE TIMES as much RAM as Firefox 3.6, and is slower to boot.

My laptop has limited RAM - about 2GB. Of the browsers I've tried (Chrome, Safari, Firefox), Firefox uses the least RAM, but it still uses around 1GB of RAM to display about 10 tabs (gmail, facebook, reader, and assorted other websites) - this seems insanely high.

Thinking back, this didn't seem to be a problem "back in the day", so to speak, so I tried installing Firefox 3.6 again.

Lo and behold, with the same addons and the same tabs open, Firefox 3.6 is using 300MB of RAM where Firefox 21 used 980MB of RAM. In addition, navigation is noticeably snappier in Firefox 3.6 - probably because it doesn't have to page to disk as often (which would often lock up my computer using Firefox 21).

I thought that newer versions were supposed to improve memory performance, not triple the required memory...

I'm running Mozilla firefox 32.0.3 (most updated version) on a desktop with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. During the past few weeks, firefox has been running slow and crashing every 5 minutes (literally, not an exaggeration). I already reset my browser to the default settings but that did not solve the issue. What can be causing the problem?

Since this new version got updated without my consent, i have lost my add-ons which annoys me greatly.

I am getting pop-up adds again, where as the version i was running previously they did not show up.

I had my old version customised just the way i like it, and i want it back. I am unphased about "bugs, glitches and security issues" as i trust my anti-virus to do its job. I would just like the version i had back the way i had it. This new version is not good and looks like google chrome, and if i wanted chrome, i would download it

About 3-4 hours ago I upgraded to Firefox 30. I have lost the look and functionality that I prefer. I have spent several hours trying to get it back, but nothing I have tried has fixed it and several things have made it worse. I think this is just not worth it. I want to roll back to ffx 29. I understand the warnings, but I don't want to switch to a different browser any more than I want to switch to ffx 30. On Mozilla's help pages, there is a link to a page of folders, but it is not clear how to downgrade to ffx29.

Hello,

I'm using Firefox Nightly and it just updated to 84.0a1 (2020-10-30) (64-bit). With this update, the "Other Bookmarks" folder appears on the Bookmarks Toolbar. It's situated on the far right, after the 2 right arrows that show the rest on the bookmarks from the toolbar. I've looked into the settings to see if this new addition can be hidden or removed, but I couldn't find anything. Can somebody tell me how I can hide it ?

Thank you, Flavius
