Take any example GIF file on pretty much any website. if I right-click the image, I can "Save image as", but my only format option is webp. I have the same issue if I visit the direct link to the file and choose "save page as". Surely there is a way to save the page in its original format right? It's a GIF so I should have the option to save it as a GIF?

I've also noticed if I right-click a GIF and "copy image" I only get a single frame of the image on my clipboard, but I would be able to work around that if I could just save it the way I want to.

On my Toshiba laptop, but not on my desktop, when I reboot and click on any bookmark or on any tab to search for anything it just keeps trying to access it forever. If I close Firefox and start again, it says Firefox is running and needs to close and do I want to close it - Yes but does it again and again. Sometimes waiting awhile, it eventually works.

Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

I previously had the NoScript extension. I disabled it in preferences and restarted Firefox. It seems like one of these moz-extension:// windows were open at the time, so when I try to launch Firefox, it tries to re-create moz-extensions:// windows and dies.

I can’t start Firefox. I can’t start Firefox in --safe-mode. I’m happy to provide any debug info needed.

I am using Widows7 Home Premium with Yahoo Mail and Firefox, a combination that's worked for years.

When starting an email and when you put the first letter in the 'To' line I used to get a box suggesting all the names in my contact list beginning with the same letter. With a simple click on the name you want, it appears on the 'To' line. This is not now happening and it's a pain having to dig out email addresses from elsewhere.

I have not made any alterations anywhere on the computer, it just disappeared one day.

How can I get this feature to reappear?

I have a problem accessing articles in the New York Times web page. I have a Basic subscription and I am signed in. When I try to read an article, the New York Times site thinks I do not have a subscription and that I have used up all my free articles. If I use the Chrome browser, it works fine, but I do not want to use Chrome. I use FireFox for all my browsing. I have deleted cache and cookies. Tried the "Private Windows" too. I have logged out and back in. I have rebooted the machine (an Alienware 17 R5) and closed and opened Firefox. The "agents" I chatted with say this is a browser problem as everything is working fine on their side and it works in Chrome. Can anyone help me out?

Multiaccount containers multiplying my tabs?

3 days ago I closed my main Firefox Windowby accident, while other windows were open. To restore, I just used the normal "recently closed windows" option and reopened my windows. Immediatly, all my tabs that were assigned to "Containers" were duplicated, and I lost the "Simple Tab Groups" order. For each tab on a container, a second was created without an assigned container. Fine, i thought, just closed 130 tabs that were unassigned, and moved them to the right Groups again. Next day, i open firefox, same thing. All tabs duplicated (but now on the proper groups). Closed 130 duplicated tabs and moved on. But I can't spend 5 minutes each day doing it! Testing more, I realized that every time I close and reopen Firefox, all the tabs assigned to a Container get a copy. If i close and reopen firefox 10 times, i will get 10 copies of all tabs, with no assigned containers to them, ending up with 1300 unnecessary tabs.

I just cant figure out how to fix it. Any advice?
