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

There is a site I visit which embeds stock charts from tradingview.com

I can view any chart directly at tradingview.com but I can't view them when they are embedded at this site: https://www.edumomo.com/blog/2020/07/09/stock-market-watchlist-for-09-july-2020/

I've tried in private browsing since that eliminates any possible conflict with extensions but it doesnt work either.

I've updated firefox and it doesnt make a difference.

I don't know what else to do, I'd rather not have to switch browsers.

I've been searching for the answer to this for a couple of hours and nothing has worked. When I start typing in the URL bar, I only want websites I've visited previously to show up, in the order of most frequently visited. It used to do that until a few hours ago. Now instead I get previous search results and bookmarked sites only. Can I change it back to its previous function or will I have to revert to an older version of Firefox?

eta: I figured out how to get the websites to show again, but I still don't want the search history showing up.

Firefox is my default browser. When I try to log into my account at clickbank.com, all I get is an endlessly spinning wheel icon. (PW and user name are correct.) When I use that OTHER browser (AKA Google Chrome), I can quickly sign in.

Any suggestions as to how to get Firefox to talk to ClickBank?

Thanks for any help you can share.

Quite often I accidentally double click on a video or a picture and Firefox decides it means I want to go to full screen. In my case it never does. I have never wanted to use full screen for anything in a browser and yet several times a month it decides by itself to go full screen. There is after all a reason I am using a computer and not a tablet(multiple windows).

So how do I stop Firefox from ever going to full screen mode regardless of what happens in Windows?

I have tried doing searches both on search engines, extensions and Firefox help site but all results seem to just point at the opposite solutions of always being full screen.

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to (website).com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details...

So my question is, would attackers be able to steal such information if i never enter any? ie, if i only visit the site to read about things...

thanks for your reply!

THIS keeps on happening at least 6 - 8 a year. ive cleared the cache off Firefox, rebooted it, got a now TESCO site and it is still the same. Yet Google fires up all right all the time. I have got 3 pc of a type and they all can get TESCO without any trouble. Ive been with you for 20yrs and am reluctant to change noW. Tesco just say your better of using Google than Firefox, which isn't much help. Yes they can get me on (sometimes) but they all ways say Google is the one really.

There must be something i can do?

Today, July 8, 2020, I am unable to use Firefox to login to my NFCU account. Called the Credit Union and it is not on their end. Log in for CU works on Chrome, Internet Explorer and Bing. Error message is: - - - Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://signon.navyfederal.org/siteminderagent/forms/nfcu.fcc" on this server.

Reference #18.3c09c617.1594220052.49fad8a3 - - - This login method has worked for over a decade on Firefox and most recently as June 30, 2020. Now it no longer accepts the login page as valid. I have tried clearing the cache/history/cookies - no result.

Earlier this morning, Chrome gave me the same message, but it is now working with the Credit Union login. Firefox is the browser I use most and is my preferred browser. I do not want to use Bing for banking. Please fix this issue.

Thanks.

I occasionally visited this site https://referti-empoli.uslcentro.toscana.it/portalepaziente_user/user-login (it's a site managed by the local health authorities). I am reported that a safe connection cannot be established with the message PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. I am not shown any option to consider this site SAFE (no matter what, it's SAFE and I need to access it occasionally). I also use ESET anti-virus software. I can access through other browser, at least the show me it couldn't be safe but allow me to go on. I don't want to switch browser once in a while to navigate. I want to use Firefox in any case (or switch to another one that allows me to). How can I make it work (apart from deleting cache, temp files and history, which did not work)? Thank you.
