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 have owned my Mac Book Pro since 2014 and I inadvertently re-installed Firefox without knowing a new profile would be created. I am not able to load my old profile into the new one. I can see the "old Firefox data" folder and have tried everything Firefox has to fix this but nothing is working. I have lost 6 years of bookmarks!

Anything other tricks to fix this? Thanks!

Hello. I often want to print the content on a web site, typically newspaper article. I only get to print the beginning of the website, typically 2 A-4 pages. I often want to create a pdf file of a web site, typically a newspaper article. I then use the built-in feature for this in firefox by selecting print and then choosing to create pdf file. Firefox then creates a pdf file just like when printing, that is, only the beginning of the web page / article. How can I fix this? When using the same features in apple safari, there are no problems. Can this be fixed in future firefox updates?

For no reason that I can see, a pinterest "save" button has started to appear in the upper left hand corner of images in my Firefox browser. I have not loaded an extension or add-on, and I can find nothing to "disable" under Tools.

Any suggestions?

Firefox keeps crashing, sometimes individual tabs, sometimes the whole thing. The constant "crash reason" given in the reports is: EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS.

I'm using a macbook, mid-2010 upgraded with SSD and 8GB RAM. (Which may be the problem right there.)

My only extensions are Facebook Container, OneTab, Reddit Enhancement Suite, and uBlock Origin. Only plugins are OpenH264 Video Codec, Shockwave Flash 32.0, and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. (no idea about this last one).

Any ideas?

(My understanding of the inner-workings of computers does not run terribly deep...)

I just upgraded to to Mac OS Catalina and Firefox 75, and I've noticed two very strange and specific problems on certain websites.

-On Wikipedia the number 9 is displayed as an underscore _ So the year 1669 looks like 1__9, etc.

-On Blogger, in the compose mode, typing lowercase y makes nothing appear, and typing lowercase z produces quotation marks!

I tried using a different (brand new) keyboard, and the problem remained.

I tried those two websites in the Safari browser, and there were no problems.

I have been using the Developer Edition for a while, and it has until now updated without problem. However after downloading and installing v70B7, on clicking the Icon to launch it it will not launch. Sometimes the Firefox menu bar shows for a second before disappearing again, and sometimes I can see (but not read) a fleeting error screen in red. I should perhaps try to fix the problem by deleting the application and reinstalling it, but I do not want to lose all my Bookmarks, which include many valuable websites. Advice on my best way forward would be appreciated!

I want Cmd-Right to be "Select Next Tab" and Cmd-Left to be "Select Previous Tab". This is impossible with Firefox. The shortkeys extension can't do it, Firefox can't do it, and "Select Next Tab" and "Select Previous Tab" are not in the macOS menu, so I can't use macOS to customize my keyboard shortcuts like a I can with Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.
