Change Right-Click Copy-Image File Format from TIFF to JPG

This problem might be unique to Mac OS, and may not even be a Firefox issue at all, but I had to try and see if there was an answer in here somewhere. I frequently use the "copy-image" command from the right-click contextual menu from within Firefox. When I paste that image into a text message for example, it's converted to a TIFF, regardless of the actual format it's in on the website I found it. Unfortunately, Android phones won't accept a text with a TIFF image, causing a delivery failure. There's more reasons why this is annoying, but that's the main one. Is there any way to make sure that copy command retains the original format of the image when copied to the clipboard? Thanks.

Hi - The last 2-3 Mac OS versions of FF (85.0.2, 86.0) are not allowing me to open Firefox>Preferences from the Firefox menu, the dashboard icon, or using Command-,

I'm only able to open the Preferences window by typing about:preferences in the address bar. If I keep a Preferences tab available, I'm able to navigate to that window using the aforementioned methods.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

I'm tired of this brand minimalistic crap nonsense. In 2017, I didn't like the change but it didn't warrant me to do anything. The new logo doesn't even look like a globe. Just revert it. And I'm not writing this because of "THE FOX IS GONE" meme. I know it's still there. The logo just looks really bad. Please revert it.

But there is also a login for same Username X on a sub/folder/url at domain abc/admin/login

If I try to edit the saved loging to manually add ww.abc.com/admin/ ( user / password ) it says the user name already exists.

I want the username/saved login to be tied to the login page not only the domain?

So I was having some trouble a few days ago with a website that automatically re-directed as soon as I landed on it to another page. So I happily went off in the settings and disable the automatic redirect. Now a week or two later I'm sitting here going I can't find the setting anymore? I can't even search for it and have absolutely no results you would think searching for "redirect" in the settings pain would bring it up. it's probably something that got buried in developer tools that I would never be able to turn off/toggle again unless I get lucky with the right extremely memorable and easily accessible incantation in the about : config because that's just all so well documented. Is it a "1" is it a "0" is it a "5" which one disabled / enabled what is the other options do?

Having a problem with printing since moving to FF 86.0. Print is automatically set up for my Brother MFC-J895W (LAN connection) to print 2-sided and back-to-front, but is printing the 2nd page upside down. I've tried going into about:config and deleting the entry for "print.print", as well as editing the prefs.js and deleting everything that has "print_", but no help.

Looks like I need to rollback to Firefox version 84. Updated to version 86. However, printing from Reader View takes over twice the number of printed pages as Simplify Page function found in earlier version. The font in Reader View is much too large for efficient printing.

The two uploaded images print the same webpage article, but earlier Firefox version takes 16-pages, while version 86 takes over twice that many, 35-pages.

Are there about:config settings that can reduce font size in Reader View, or do I have to rollback to version 84?

Hello,

I am looking at the reason why every time Firefox updates this link opens in a new tab https://www.grabber.website/

No other browser does this. Wondering if I can block that tab from opening when Firefox updates. Considering deleting Firefox altogether if this keeps happening.

When I typed any search shortcut (let's say "w" for Wikipedia) and then Space in the address bar, the bar would have just shown "w ".

After an update to 86, now typing "w " shows "Wikipedia" in a blue box instead of "w ". This is extremely irritating because I now can't just press Alt+D and enter a new search shortcut from scratch when I mistyped.

I have both browser.urlbar.update1 and browser.urlbar.update2 set to false.

Over the last few days my "Find in Page" function has stopped working. If I type Ctrl-F the window opens in the status bar. I can type one letter that highlights some - but not all - instances of that letter on the page. As soon as I type a second letter the field goes pink.

Is it possible this is something easy to fix without having to completely reload Firefox?

Yes, it's a very old version of Firefox. But it's worked perfectly until now.

I have experienced with a specific website where downloading images always prompts the save to the Downloads folder instead of staying in the folder where i need to set the downloads for.

meaning: a set of images when clicking on save, then selecting the destination folder and saving, works ok. But upon saving the next image from the gallery returns to the downloads folder.

Trying this from any other website, the last folder where the last image was saved is the one where the new image will be saved.

If from the website where im having this issue, i right-click then click on the image and select "view image" and click save, the browser.download.lastdir does work and the previously used folder shows up as the destination for download.
