Firefox Screenshot Title Issue

When I used to take screenshots, they would be automatically named with the date, time, and part of the text captured regardless of language. A few days ago and with no reason I can discern, it now saves any non-English screenshots with something like this "Screenshot 2024-06-23 a[...].png" instead of "Screenshot 2024-06-22 at 08-02-28 Politics Policy Polit[...].png" (usual for English text and what I used to get with all languages).

Which means I have to manually rename screenshots. Does anyone know how I can fix this because I am working on a project with lots of screenshots for topics from different languages?

This is super frustrating. How to use Firefox for development purposes? There should be an option to add exceptions. I even went to settings and added an exception manually to no avail.

I'm going often through pain to use firefox for everything but then there must be a reasonable way to achieve the goals.

Please tell me there is a way to workaround this easily without compromising security of other sites that are being visited.

P.S. I can open same site with adding an exception on chrome.

This isn't strictly related to Hulu but using it as an example: Hulu has some bug right now where it will occasionally suddenly use a lot of CPU power and completely lock up Firefox, and to some degree my whole system. If I manage to "close" the tab, it *appears* to close, but it's very clear that whatever Hulu is doing is still going on in the background. This time I was at least able to open the task manager and kill Firefox – which immediately alleviated the problem, and upon reopening Firefox, the Hulu tab was still there (indicating it never closed).

I don't know if this is possible, especially given I don't know what's causing the bug with Hulu, but it would be nice if Firefox was better able to handle a tab getting out of control like that.

I used to be able to dismiss unwanted Shortcuts on the New Tabs Page, but now the three dots that popped up the menu for that are gone. Is there still a way to get rid of them to make room for others? Also would like to have the option to choose shortcuts to place on the page.

Hello,

I have checked the box "Always ask you where to save files". It works well most of the time, however, I have faced a case in which it does not. Opening a link to a pdf file directly from google search results, somehow bypasses this option, and starts downloading the pdf automatically, and opens it after download finished. I believe you are aware how dangerous it is to open pdf files directly.

If there is a solution to this, I will be glad to hear from you, as it is very important issue. Thank you beforehand.
