Possible coincidence, but suspicious! Re: Firefox 81 [from the 100s of ‘hits’ I see here now, likely a Ffx bug]

Written from wife’s PC since mine is now crippled. I upgraded to Firefox 81 on my own PC, reluctantly, for “security” fixes, NOT for the big new feature I don’t want. Last night I downloaded v. 81 then closed Ffx and shut down the PC late at night. (It runs Win 7 with all the relevant updates I know.)

Today after booting, it showed my normal desktop. But my email app (located on D: drive) would not open either from shortcut or from Programs menu. Same for all the other apps I tried to open, even on C: drive, including ms_Office. Almost any app would bring up “server execution failed.”

Now, after a few hours on “Sleep” then reopening: --Nothing but a black screen (w/cursor) for 5-10 minutes anyway; --Later a plain blue screen, in small type on lower right: “Windows 7 build [no.] / “This copy … not genuine” –although it came installed, straight from Dell!

I hope mozilla can help cure this in its paralyzed state – and get me back to v. 80.0.1 that worked!

Hi,

Je n'ai pas trouvé dans About:Config une option pour revenir au fonctionnement précédent avec les options fermer les onglets Fermer les onglets directement accessibles comme c'est toujours le cas dans Chrome (Voir PJ).

J'utilise beaucoup ces options et je déplore d'avoir à passer par un menu intermédiaire.

Google image searches shows only as the colour I have selected as my background when I try to look for something. In Google Sheets, Docs, and Maps the selected background colour also overpowers/overwrites the colour preview pop-up when changing the colour of text, highlights, or pins. Returning to default colours or changing "Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above" from "Always" (which makes it so I can actually see my selected colours) makes the issue occur. I have tried refreshing Firefox and changing the colours again to no avail. The issue occurs again.

Reading the several comments on this subject has not led to a solution. The Firefox Setup 81 and Installer are sitting in the downloads file, but when I click either "Open" or "Run as Administrator" I get a Windows "For security and performance Windows 10 in S mode...." followed by two options "Learn more" or "Switch out of S mode". When I choose the latter the "Switch out of S mode" page arrives. Now what? Thanks.

While upgrading my FF from 56.0 to the newest, I found 792 empty text files labelled "serviceworker-xxx.txt" in my profile directory. What caused this? I'm thinking it may be related to pingfinder.exe that tries to run whenever I close the browser. I have that blocked in ZoneAlarm, but it always seems to auto-generate a new temp name/location. What is "pingfinder" and can it be renamed/deleted?

Since about version 78, Firefox started randomly deciding that both of my addons are no longer verified and disables them. I have had to reinstall them from the Firefox addon page dozens of times at this point. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and that did not help. I'm using Offline QR Code Generator and uBlock Origin, which both come from the official Mozilla page. Using Firefox 80.0 now and this is still happening.

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
